Here are the steps taken in the floor leveling process:
Shoring – We prepare the home to be raised by inserting beams and jacks underneath.
Detaching House from Foundation – We slowly raise the jacks at an even pace. This minimizes damage to the interior of your home.
New Support – After the building is leveled, we adjust the existing foundation to provide a solid bearing surface upon which we reset and anchored the floor. We add new piers to secure the adjustment in place.
Leveling these uneven floors with a hydraulic jack is a very difficult procedure and should only be done by a licensed, experienced contractor. Incorrectly lifting the settled portion will further damage the structure, breaking windows and creating even larger cracks.
If old wood has become warped into an arc it may retain its shape even after leveling house supports. This is where our experience and expertise comes in. We correct sagging floors and the effects of foundation damage to help you to avoid the expensive step of total replacement.
