Having your house raised or restumped is a big job, and one in which there are many variables where something could go wrong. It is for this reason that there are specific laws and ordinance codes that are in place, to ensure that all work is carried out properly. If the work is not done correctly or not according to local codes and laws, it could cause any number of problems for you down the track and you may lose your home. Worst case scenarios could mean that your house will need to be pulled down due to lack of compliance, or that it may fall down of its own accord, and cause injury to yourself or someone else.
Ensure the Work is Legal
If the house raising or restumping work is not completed according to the laws and local ordinance codes, then it is likely that it will not be legal. This means that the council can come along and ask you to pull your house down, and there is nothing that you can do about it. The checks and balances that are put in place for all industries, is done so for the protection of all parties concerned to ensure that work is carried out properly and to minimise any harm.
Putting time and money into having your house raised and restumped means turning your whole world upside down for a period of time with a view to having newly refurbished premises to call home. Choosing a reputable business, such as Black and White Houseraising and Restumping, to carry out this work is paramount to getting the job done properly on all counts. We are a professional company with many years of experience. We will be able to advise you on everything that needs to be done, ensuring that you adhere to the appropriate codes and laws.
Protect Yourself Against Injury and Litigation
Choosing a company that knows what they are doing will save you on issues and problems both during the time when the work is being carried out and later when you are left with your house. Should you decide to opt for cutting corners to save time or money, would only leave yourself open to the possibility of something going wrong in the future. It may not be as simple as needing work to be redone, but could lead to injury and the possibility of litigation, which could cost you a lot more than it would have if you had it done properly in the first place.
