Concrete Stumps supporting the house are leaning

A number of concrete stumps in the subfloor of this building were noted to be leaning and spalling during the pre-purchase inspection of this property in Brisbane. Spalling is when the concrete is pitted and deteriorating. Neither of these two issues are good, but combined together they may compromise the structural integrity of the stumps and affect the support of the building. The building inspector found that many of the internal floors were out of level and quite a few of the windows and doors would not close. The Pest inspector actually was unable to open a door that the wind from the open window slammed shut. He called the building inspector who was able to get the door open with a bit of work.
A house re-stumper is required to inspect and rectify as necessary.
