Hey thanks Glenn,
You have done a great job there for me sub-floor report and quote.
Thanks so much for your help to date you’re a legend you have saved me spending $950K, on a property that was only worth half the asking price. You’re quote to repair the sub-floor foundations was comprehensive, not even the building inspector was as comprehensive in his report as you were thank you again you really are a credit to your profession.
Should any of my friends or I hear of any one for that matter looking to purchase a property, I will highly recommend you to them as your skills are truly out standing.
I am putting the wheels in motion today to get out of the contract, based on your good and thorough advice, so I’ll be taking you up on another inspection real soon!!
Thanks again Glenn,
Thank you for the excellent report. The report and the conditions under which you produced the report are clear testament to your commitment to quality. As a novice property-buyer, the pictures and explanations of the long, long list of issues with the house are greatly appreciated.
We are terminating the contract this morning.
We really appreciate the effort you have put in. I have not purchased a property before, and of all the people who I assumed to have my best interests at heart (because I was paying them), you are the first person who has actually been on my side. You have saved Anne and I from a dead-set nightmare.
Thanks!Evan & Anne
We recently organised restumping at my mother’s house in Brisbane. After looking at several quotes we chose Glenn Palframan to carry out the works. I am an engineer and my sister and her partner are both architects so he had plenty of professional oversight on this job.
Having seen many job sites, I have to say that Glenn runs an exceptionally tidy one.
Mum is in her late 80’s and she was worried about having people working at the house and the disruption etc. She found it very easy to stay in the house while the work was done. Glenn and his team were all very polite and friendly the whole time keeping Mum informed as to what was happening as the job progressed. Mum was very happy we chose Glenn to do the work.
His standard of workmanship was exceptionally high. He doesn’t cut corners and makes sure the work is done properly. Structurally and aesthetically I couldn’t find any issues with the work he did.
Once he started the job, everything progressed very quickly from start to finish. There were no delays waiting for him to reappear during the work. It was completed in slightly less time than he estimated and we had some rainfall during the work.
At the same time, there were other works that needed doing around the same part of the house and Glenn organised those to happen as well using the equipment we had on site for the restumping work.Mark Edwards
At the end of the job, everything was cleaned up and the work area was swept out. The yard damage was kept to a minimum but in areas where new soil had been spread out they raked the area over to smooth everything out. Both inside and outside, the house was left in a better state than when they arrived.
I have no hesitation in recommend Glenn for restumping work and would be happy to talk to anyone considering using him to have such work done.

I am writing this letter on behalf of Yvette and I, to say how impressed we were the fantastic work you did in replacing all the steel posts under our house. From the first moment you attended our home for the initial quote to the time you finished the work, we were very impressed with your knowledge, enthusiasm and your commitment to doing the job right.
The work you and Rob did, was second to none and you have left our home in a much better state than it was even when new. The meticulous way you both went about your work, the standard you achieve and the way you left the house when finished was highly impressive and a credit to yourselves.
Thank you once againNeil & Yvette Jones

Glen Palframan completed a series of restumping on my house very recently. Right from the start I was impressed with his advice but especially his honesty. He provided me with several solutions to the structural problems that I had encountered. Whilst he was working on the job, he provided me with constant updates by phoning me and sending me photos of the work step by step. Glen is certainly a rarity and in an environment where not all tradespeople have a good reputation, Glen works hard for his reputation. He is from the old school where he works to the highest standards and turns up to the job on time. My wife and I are very grateful that we had Glen fix up our property and have no hesitation in recommending his services to others in need of professional ,quality workmanship.Derek and Alison
I’d like to thank you for the restumping work you, Rob and Matt performed on my property over the last month. I was lucky enough to be able to spend a fair bit of time observing your work method. I was very impressed with the speed at which you removed and installed new stumps and columns. You used multiple methods to ensure the house became completely level and rechecked all stumps when finished to confirm your work. Every stump and column was installed correctly and met/exceeded the regulation.
Your attention to detail meant a lot when you levelled the bathroom section of my house. By raising the whole section evenly and all at once you ensured that no cracking occurred in any tiles in my entire bathroom.
You also assembled new battens and rails around the entire house to create a solid and secure area underneath. The two gates you built (one very large) are very sturdy and will last forever. You have breathed new life into my underfloor area!
You also did a very good job of organising support when I had a few plumbing issues regarding an existing gas line you found under our laundry tub. You had it taken care of whilst I was absent.
My intention was to restump my house and create a solid foundation to perform the rest of my house renovations. Thanks to your professional work I am very confident that I will never have a problem with house movement again!
Thank you very much Glenn!Adam & Claire
Many thanks for your wonderful work on our Queenslander over the last week. You are a credit to your name and your business! We were so happy with the stumping job you did on our house. You responded immediately to our email inquiry, you provided us with a detailed quote, you came on site within two working days to assess our needs and you were able to start work within the time frame we requested. Upon our acceptance of your quote you stayed in constant communication and began work promptly upon settlement of the property.
Your work was so rigorous! You and your co-worker Rob were politely spoken, well mannered men who worked very hard and took great pride in your work. You worked very fast, within the very tight time frame, and your work is exemplary, compared with the previous stumping done on the property. You left the property clean and tidy and went out of your way to assist us with many aspects of our renovation, including helping us move some furniture, and providing us with references to a number of fantastic tradies, including AK Blair Plumbing and builder Michael Ryan. We are thrilled with our end result and look forward to moving into our new home shortly.
I have taken the liberty of enclosing a couple of photographs of you taken during work on the property.
We have paid the final instalment tonight and I wish you and Rob every success in future. We will certainly be recommending you to anyone requiring stumping work!
Best wishes,Jessica & Scott

When we sent you an Email during Easter 2010 requesting advice and a quote, we did not expect to hear from you until after the holidays. We were surprised by your rapid response, same day, and you were on site the next day.
Your calm manner and obvious knowledge immediately re-assured us that our problem was relatively minor and your advice as to the method for replacement of our steel piers was logical and in line with what I am sure is best building practice.
From the time we first contacted you until the work was completed was just over 1 month, considering that you had to have the piers made and hot dip galvanised, then having witnessed the extremely hard work that you and Rob put in to complete the task, this was nothing short of an astounding effort.
At all times your obvious knowledge and skill was evident, you work hard, you don’t make a mess of the site and you clean up everything when you finish. The site was cleaner when you left than before you started !
With the new steel piers in place it is obvious that the structure is now rock solid and will stand long into the future, even our friend, who is an engineer, was extremely impressed with your work. What is more impressive is that your careful placement of jacks to hold the house up while you worked on replacing the piers, meant that there was absolutely no movement or cracking in the structure above.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and the care you took with our house. I will always recommend your services to anyone in need of house re-stumping. Please feel free to invite anyone to contact us for a verbal reference or an inspection of the work you completed.
Yours sincerelyJohn & Wendy Wilby

I just wanted to convey our sincere thanks to you, your Father and Rob for all of your hard work at our place. Your commitment to quality and attention to detail has left
us with a structurally sound house for the future. We will be in touch when we’re looking to purchase again and will recommend you, without reservation, to friends and family needing similar work carried out at their properties.
Kind regards,Scott and Sasha Howden

Glenn, sorry this reference has been a little while in coming as summer and moving house has been a very busy period for us at E-Zee Pool and Spa.
You came out and gave us a thorough assessment of the stumps that needed replacement and what level would be achieved when this was done without doing any damage to the meticulous renovation which was done with the house slightly out of level in a previous time.
Our home is low to the ground and hence not an easy job by any means. Your proposal was thorough and comprehensive and what you delivered was what you promised, which is all too rare these days. You and Rob worked tirelessly to achieve the result and re-stumped our water tank as well.
You and Rob were always polite and informative in regard to the job and how it was proceeding. When you were finished you removed all rubbish and left our home neat and tidy as you had also promised.
When we researched who to get the job done by on the Internet and by word-of-mouth, it was clear that your company was the one for Wendy and I to get to do the job as it was a difficult job but we wanted to get the job done properly the first time and although we had to wait some time to get the job done by your company it was well worth the wait and we are very happy with our decision and would recommend you wholeheartedly to anyone with a similar mindset.
Thanks again Glenn and Rob, trust this e-mail finds you both well.John and Wendy Hudson
With the restumping work at our home now completed, I am writing to thank you for a job well done.
I was most impressed with the way this work was completed within the promised time frame including the restoration work, general tidying up and the clearing of all debris from the property.
Thank you again, and should any person be seeking to have restumping work carried out, I should be very pleased to highly recommend your firm. to do the job.
Yours sincerelyE.H. Pearson

Here follows our testimonial on the work you did on our home.
Over the past few months, we have undertaken major renovations to our property. During that time, we have dealt with numerous tradespeople. Some were good, some were average, and one group was terrible.
Glenn Palframan House Restumping was excellent in every respect. The work entailed the replacement of concrete stumps, steel posts, the installation of new steel beams, and the repair of a steel and concrete staircase.
Their approach to the job was well planned, and the job was completed to a very high standard with meticulous attention to detail.
It was obvious they take great pride in their work, and do not accept second best. All this adds up to one very important thing – peace of mind.
To borrow a phrase from a recent advertisement: Peace of mind = PRICELESS!
We would wholeheartedly recommend Glenn Palframan house restumping to anyone considering foundation work on their property.A & A Gaul

Dear Glenn, Wow! Is the word I use to describe the restumping job you recently completed on my home.
I appreciated your professional advice and work ethic before and during the job. I’m so grateful for the excellent service, cleanup and care that you and Rob took with my home during and after you completed the restumping.
I would, and already have, recommended your services to others and don’t hesitate in giving you permission to refer any prospective customers to call me for a personal recommendation on the job you completed on my home.
I wish to thank you and Rob again for your excellent workmanship and wish you every success in the future.
We wish to thank you for the restumping work recently completed on our house. A very professional and thorough job was performed within a reasonable timeframe and without fuss. Upon completion, the under house area was left in a cleaner state than before work commenced. We would have no hesitation in referring Glenn’s services to others.
The restumping and levelling performed has made a drastic improvement to the look and feel of our house.
Sincerely,Ryan and Nicole Lusk

Thank you for solving and fixing the long standing problem I had with my front steps and two front stumps. My security door locks securely for the first time in a year, and in this hot weather it is a blessing to be able to open the front door and have fresh air circulate through the house in the evening.
Please thank Mr. Palframan Senior and your workmen, for working non-stop through incredible heat to complete the work. I am more than happy with the result.
I will have no hesitation recommending your company to anyone looking for a good restumping firm.Mrs. J. Loggie

Glenn, I’m writing to let you know how very pleased I am with the restumping work carried out recently at my property.
The excellent teamwork between yourself, Don and Robert was most impressive, and I found your systematic and organised approach to the work most reassuring. Also, the time and extra effort that was put into not only discussing problems, but exploring every possibility of solving them, was greatly appreciated.
It was most refreshing to have such a helpful and friendly team carrying out the work, and most of all having a completed job that was absolutely neat, strong, and thorough
After it was all done, I really appreciated coming home to a perfectly cleared, neat and tidy work-site. So, thanks again Glenn and your team for your ideas, expertise and professional workmanship.Carolyn de Cambra

I want to sincerely thank you for the excellent work you did recently in the partial restumping of my house. You seemed to have the right equipment and knowledge for each part of the work, and you both were prepared to spend a few minutes each morning and evening keeping me up-to-date on the process. For me, a person of no experience or knowledge of restumping, this was very helpful. You worked both in the shade and in the sun in the massive heat of February. Despite the conditions, you kept very close to the predicted time frame for the job. As you know, I was very sick at the time, and your kindness to help me in several personal ways, at no cost to me, was truly helpful to my healing. My health is improving, slowly but surely.’Jack McLeary
