Foundation Repair

While we do not do major foundation repair, sometimes we do minor repairs and leveling to homes that have shifted with the North Texas soil. This house had some floor issues where the beams under the house had shifted and were pushing outward.
The floor was pushing the sliding door and entire wall outward...
We dug far enough down to get under the house...
We used jacks and very long threaded 3/4 inch bolts to attach to solid bracing under the house, and used the power of the bolts tightening against the solid bracing to pull the side of the house back together.   Quite a heavy chore, but it worked!!
Here is the finished product after we filled the dirt back in.  It held itself in place and was a very cost-effective repair...


Happy Digging!!
