When you think of raising your home, never decide to use a particular contractor when you have not done any background search or check.
Use quality materials to raise your house. For wood houses, it’s difficult to get excellent quality timber for restumping a home. However, steel posts are used nowadays but you need some preparation for the post to be put in place. The quality of the raising or stumping material determines the standard of the job done. The truth is you may need to do some small preparatory work. For example, if you have decided to use steel, the steel has to be treated to protect it from rust and erosion, after installation.
To prevent the steel from decay, first, galvanize the steel with a great amount of enamel to prevent it from moisture. Enamel is only applied to the section of the steel that will in the ground (8-10inchs above the ground).
For extra protection, apply a good amount of black tar over the enamel when it has dried. Although the enamle can penetrate and seal the steel better, the tar provides better protection to the steel than the enamel when it’s in contact with stones, earth, and concrete.
