You are looking at purchasing a house and your building and pest inspection has noted that there is evidence of cracking in a home stump or house footings and you should engage a qualified restumping contractor.
What does this mean?
House foundations are a crucial part of the construction process.
A home stump is a pillar of wood, stone or metal that holds your house up off the ground.
Keeping your home off the ground protects it from groundwater pests, sloping ground and more.
Furthermore, it helps keep your home stable and level.
Thus, if you do not restump your home, this will have major long-term effects.
A deteriorating house stump can move and warp your home, which will eventually cause damage that will need to be repaired.
Inevitably, these costs will exceed the cost of restumping.
Beyond the financial aspect, a failure to restump will cause damage that could completely destroy your home.
