If you have been noticing a slight slanting of the floor every time you move or cracks between the floorboard, it might be time for reblocking your house.
Reblocking is a process in which the old stumps are removed and replaced by new concrete or timber stumps. This process is necessary to level your house and give it a strong foundation.
Strong Foundation provides reliable and efficient reblocking services in the Elphinstone area.
Signs your house needs reblocking –
- Your floors are spongy.
- There are noticeable spaces (gaps) around your windows and doors.
- Bouncy floors.
- You notice a slanting when you walk on the floor.
- Cracks in plaster and/or bricks.
- Misaligned doors/windows.
- Your house has recently been hit by a natural disaster
- You’ve been noticing some waterlogging in the house.
All the above-mentioned signs mean that the stumps (the building blocks) of your house have either become weak or are old and worn out. This is quite natural for houses that have their base on low-quality stumps or houses that are more than 25-30 years old. It can also happen when a natural disaster such as an earthquake or a flood has hit your area.
When the stumps of your house are in poor condition, the floor may become uneven or develop cracks. Your house may start feeling lower at some spots while higher at others. And since your house stands on these stumps, their weakening means that the basic structure of your house has become shaky. This will not only make your house more susceptible to the harmful effects of future natural disasters but also prove to be a safety hazard for you and your family.
Why is reblocking important?
Most people don’t realize how important reblocking is until something dangerous happens. But when you can avoid such disasters by just being a little more observant of the needs of your house, then why wait?
Experts say that you should check your house once every so often for cracks or any other discord in order to prevent accidents and keep your house in a pristine condition. And if your house is older than 25-30 years, make sure to get a complete renovation. The renovation is not only done to enhance the appearance of the house. It is also important to keep the house safe and in proper working condition.
