Reblocking/Restumping
Reblocking involves replacing older timber stumps with new, more durable concrete stumps. Depending on the age and condition of the home, reblocking can involve replacing some or all of the stumps.

Re-levelling
When changes in soil conditions or other factors cause a home’s foundations to move, floor levels can change. Re-levelling brings the structure back to its original level, or as close as practicable given the current conditions.

Underpinning
Many newer brick homes feature strip concrete foundations on outer walls (and some interior walls). Sometimes these footings can subside or crack, causing damage to the house structure. Underpinning refers to a process whereby new concrete pads are inserted under the existing strip concrete foundations to provide additional support and bring the wall or house back to its original levels.
