Updated: May 27, 2021
We've made a quick checklist you can do yourself to see if your home needs Restumping. But just remember it never hurts to get a professional opinion, as they might be able to spot things you can't see.
There are several signs that you can look out for to tell if your house needs restumping. These include;
One of the more extreme signs is that your floor is no longer level, you can easily identify this by dropping a marble on the floor and if it roles in one direction. This is a sign that stumps have deteriorating over time and could be causing your house to sag.
You may not know exactly what you're looking for but a quick eye check can tell. Look for any cracks, holes, mould or any other forms of various damage.
Doors or windows harder to close
If your doors or windows are getting harder to close it could be a sign of degrading stumps. This is because over time the stumps can deteriorate and move, causing the house to shift and warping the doors and windows.
Presence of Moisture
Look for any moisture around your stumps. Moisture around the stumps can be a sign of termites in wooden stumps, however, termites can still travel up cracked concrete and access wood that way.
