Let’s be realistic, having your house restumped is a big deal. There is much to think about and a lot to take into consideration. It will require a period of time when you may have to live away from your house while the work is being done. It may be an expensive exercise. It will require a team to get the job done properly. We have broken it down into some steps that you can take to get the ball rolling.
Step 1 – Planning and Design
The first step is the planning stage. During this stage, you will need to plan what work you need doing and prepare a design of what you want as the end result. A great idea is to combine your restumping with some renovations, which could provide extra space underneath your home. You may need to do some research at this stage to work out what equipment will be needed to do the exact work that you have planned and to see which companies have the equipment and experience you require. Joining online forums for this area is another great way of getting information from people who have already gone through a similar experience.
Step 2 – Work Out Your Budget
The next step is to work out how much money you have available for doing the job. Budgeting is as important as planning, as it may also help you with other aspects of completing the job such as sourcing used materials that will save you money.
Step 3 – Research Different Companies
Looking at all of your options in terms of experience, quality of work and cost are important aspects to consider when researching which company you will employ to do the work. You may have already received some tips from people on the forums that you have joined, which will help you to make an assessment of the companies from which you want to get quotes.
Step 4 – Get Some Quotes and Information
When it comes to getting quotes, there is no harm in getting as many as possible. Most reputable companies will be happy to give you a free quote and inspection of the area and then advise on their price as well as providing useful information. The company that can deliver on the areas of expertise, quality equipment and price is going to be a winner, but really see how you feel and follow your instincts.
Step 5 – Engage Your Restumping Company
Let the fun begin. Once you have engaged the company of your choice and set a date, it will all start happening.
