Houston House Leveling
Do you have cracks in your walls, bricks separating, or difficulty shutting your doors? These are a few signs that your house needs leveling.
Owning a "Pier and Beam" or Block and Base" foundation often requires leveling. View our video to see the home leveling process.
Home Leveling in the Houston Area
“Pier and beam” or “block and base” structures are often found in the Houston areas of Galveston, Pasadena, Galena Park, and Spring. These houses have the tendency to settle and crack. This happens because the wooden beam foundation at the base is unable to support the structure on top. Many factors can be the cause of this. For instance, age, weather, moisture, and termites can all damage and degrade the overall structure and/or affect the levelness of the floors.
When the soil under your home shrinks or swells due to the increase or lack of rain, it can cause the house to shift and move. Be cautious of your home's conditions when Houston and surrounding areas begin to have flooding conditions or experience a drought or drought-like weather.
If you discover cracks in your drywall and various places around your home, and misadjusted doors, these may be signs that your house needs leveling.
How Do We Determine if Your Home Needs Leveling?
All initial inquiries are met with a free home inspection. Our experienced technicians can assess the condition of the beams, blocks, and base supporting structures, and identify the cause of your problem.
Our inspection is performed without any disruption to the home or residents.
If your home is built on a pier and beam foundation, Allied Foundation Repair Specialists can help you determine what needs to be repaired and get it fixed for you.
If required, any rotted beams are replaced, and the house is gradually lifted to its original line of construction.
