If you have noticed cracks in your floor or walls, your house may be experiencing problems with its foundation.
House or floor leveling describes the process in which a home is lifted as closely as possible to its original level when it was new. Because the ground shifts, so does the foundation of a house, which can cause it to break or crack (particularly for concrete slab foundations) and begin to sink. The experts at Alpha Structural have been in business for over twenty-five years. Our combined technical and practical expertise can help you find the best solution for your foundation needs.
Every home is built on a foundation. However, this base can shift as the ground it’s built on moves. Homes are heavy, so as time passes, this can cause cracks, sinkage, settling, or other kinds of damage from water and soil.
When you choose to level your home, you are choosing to repair one of the most important parts of your home. If your foundation has problems, not only does the value of your house drop, there can be extensive damage that can be quite costly to fix.
There are many different processes for leveling your floor & house, depending on the type of foundation you have. When our team appraises your building, they will determine which tactics would best suit your needs.
From there, our engineering-approved repair specialists will turn those tactics into actionable steps that you will be able to review and approve before any work is done. Our team will then go to work, following the plan to the letter and keeping you apprised of any changes along the way. Our project management specialists offer critical oversight of the home leveling process and make sure everything happens when and how it should. At the end, you will have a level, beautiful property and feel like you’ve been on solid ground through the entire process.
When your home is leveled, not only does the value rise, you will also experience a release from the stress associated with other issues that can come from weak or broken foundations. In addition, your foundation will be as close to possible as its original level, maintaining the layout and keeping the original design as intact as possible.
