If your house is out of level it is usually due to the ground settling underneath the blocking or foundation of the house. Settling of soils can cause gaps between the foundation supports and/or beams of the house leading to cracks in walls, doors not closing properly or jamming even windows not working properly. Floors develop squeaks and creaking noises due to a variety of reasons. Serious structural damage can occur, so it is wise to re-level your house as soon as possible.
House re-leveling is accomplished by getting all metal frames/I-beams level using multiple levelers and/or a water leveler. We also adjust piers, add and/or replace beams and replace damaged/cracked concrete blocks/piers as needed. This process is carefully done to equalize the pressure and weight distribution across the metal frames or foundation of the home in order to distribute the load over the entire footprint of the homes support pads. We repair cracks in concrete foundation as well.

Double Wide and Single Wide Trailer House Leveling Issues
Over the years, all homes begin to settle. Creaks and moans may be heard, cabinet doors, closet doors, and outside doors may not shut properly and you may feel a slight lean in the floor. This does not mean your house is sinking or danger ahead, it means it’s time to have your home adjusted.
Without having adjustments to the level of your house, the piers underneath the home that may be constructed of non-treated wood may show wear, tear and erosion. Bolts could become stressed and less effective, and other deterioration underneath the home may have occurred. Re-leveling does exactly what it says, it re-levels the home so the weight is distributed evenly and properly.
