In the olden times, the foundations of the homes were made of wood. They used to have wooden stumps over which the house was placed. The wooden stamps have a usual life span of around 80 years. However, over time, the timber can decay or termites may attack it. Therefore, this can affect the foundation of the house. One way to restore the foundation is to do re-stumping or re-blocking. In simple terms, re-stumping is the process of replacing the diseased stump with another one. In case you use concrete blocks to replace the diseased stump, you call it the re-blocking procedure. The procedure is not that simple as it seems. The procedure involves the engineer inspecting the existing trump for the extent of damage. In case the damage is not pronounced, there are chances of retaining the same stump. The contractor adds the reinforcing material to the existing stump to make it stable. In case the stump is diseased beyond repair, there would be no option but to replace it. Under such circumstances, the contractors use high-powered jacks to lift the house from its foundation to expose the stump. Using the jacks as the support, the contractors remove the diseased stump and replace the same with a new one. The modern day stumps are water resistant and termite proof. Hence, these stumps can last their full life. However, nowadays they use reinforced concrete blocks instead of the wooden stumps. The procedure is the same but the name of the procedure changes to re-blocking. The concrete blocks have a longer life than the wooden stumps because of obvious reasons. You should also look into the overall strength of the house before embarking on the re-blocking or re-stumping procedure. The house may require an entire home improvement package. We shall discuss the symptoms that could result in a re-stumping procedure in the next blog.
