Be careful, lifting a house a house that has uneven floors with a hydraulic jack can be tricky business and should only be done by a licensed, experienced contractor like Seismic Safety. If settled portions are lifted incorrectly, floor adjustment can cause even more damage to your home, breaking windows and creating even larger cracks.
Foundation lifting can be necessary for fixing a sagging floor. Sagging and uneven floors are common in older homes and are due to foundation settlement. You don’t have to live with sloping floors, windows or doors that stick and constant cracks appearing in your finished walls, our contractors are experts in sagging floor repair. Over time the soil under the foundation will settle, usually at different rates in different areas, causing the floor to warp and sag. There are a number of causes of uneven foundation settlement, but the main culprit is usually water. Water from leaky pipes, rain or sprinklers, if allowed to collect near the foundation and soak the soil will create havoc. Wet soil has reduced weight bearing capacity and over time will result in soil settlement and foundation damage.
