Dandenong Building Inspector discusses Cracked Stump

BIA’s Building Inspectors in Dandenong conduct qualified, insured Building & Pest Inspections.


We investigate all areas of the subfloor checking for defective floor supports. The stumps at this house were all in good condition except for the one in the photo.Some internal walls had been moved from their original position, which has subsequently placed a greater load on this particular stump. Excessive cracking from the extra load was clear and it was recommended the stump be replace. This would only cost around $300 but would save my client further damage to the floor structure and surrounding building elements.
