What does restumping mean?
Restumping (also known as reblocking) is essentially the process of removing and renewing the stumps that supports the base of your home. Reblocking generally happens when the property has taken a lot of water damage that has led to seepage, or if the homeowner would like to build a sturdier foundation for his home.
Stumps of a house will have to be replaced when the wood logs have weakened over the years due to excessive exposure to moisture and harsh weather conditions. This tends to happen over a few decades, and generally will since the areas are prone to heavy moisture.
At Genuine Reblocking, we make sure that you don’t have to worry about your foundations. We take the time to inspect your house and investigate what is the perfect solution for your situation, no matter how big or small.
