House leveling is another of the foundation repair services that our professional team offers. House level, or house raising, is when a concentrated effort is made to raise the foundation of your home back to level it was at the time of construction, or as near as possible. This can be achieved in a number of different ways. This can help to correct range of problems and damage that can occur, especially in regard to settling, and can be a way to ensure that your home doesn’t develop further problems or damage.
The main factor that can often contribute to you requiring a house leveling is the soil underneath your foundation. This is because this is what causes your foundation to settle and sink, lowering your home and creating problems. The soil beneath your foundation can be washed away, whether by water from leaking pipes or another source, or dry out and lose moisture, both of which can contribute to your foundation settling more than it should. This can lead to a range of problems. House leveling is a way to correct many of these problems and prevent further damage.
