When we talk about these services we usually say that we will do everything within our power to get your home straightened out. There a couple of things that go into that though. This service is not just about adding support systems or fixing something that is already broken. For the most part, the reason that the home is facing these issues is because of soil erosion or some type of miscalculation that the original builder made when getting the house up the first time around. So, in reality, 50% of this service actually involves trying to counter those issues rather than fixing a failing structure directly.
Why Is Your Home Uneven?
This goes along with what we just mentioned there are plenty of things that could be happening underneath your home. Like major drainage issues that are spilling water underneath your home and are causing it to shift. There may be other soil erosion causes that were ignored at the time that the home was built and are now coming back to haunt you. In our mind what we want to do first is to find those problems before we start correcting anything in the structure.
Adding Support Systems
We get this a lot with older homes the original foundation can be insufficient as it has been worn down by the elements over time. In a lot of these cases what we are going to have to do is add or replace some of the support systems that were literally holding the house up. You have to remember that just a couple of decades ago many homes had wooden foundations. A lot of these homes are still standing today thanks to brilliant construction. At times though we may need to come in and give the structure a helping hand!
Our services can go from we have a couple of guys with some shovels and that is all that we are going to need to be able to repair your problem, to we need to literally lift this house off the ground so that we can put in the proper work. Going with a company that has that kind of range can really be beneficial to you as the homeowner. The first thing that we are going to make sure that we do is to give you all of the information so that you can make an informed decision. If a major rebuild is needed we will set everything up so that we can get through it quickly and efficiently.
