Frequently asked questions

You’ve got questions and we’ve got answers

Many people choose to raise their home because the existing foundation has simply lost its integrity and is no longer suitable for the structure. Instead of costly piering and patching methods more people are opting for a permanent solution while adding significant value to their homes. Most basement replacement clients choose to pour their new foundation with nine or ten foot high walls to maximize their new living space. Other reasons include homes that are on a crawl space or slab.

We specialize in masonry structures. We use an exclusive unified hydraulic jacking system. This system enables one man to control the entire jacking operation. The jacks are locked together by a unifying system and will raise and lower in unison regardless of individual jack loading. Each unified jack is on a separate hydraulic circuit and failure in one jack will not cause pressure loss in the other jacks. This system can accommodate from one to thirty-eight 100 ton rams in unison. This system is essential when making large, irregular lifts. So don’t settle for anything else!

Minor stress cracks may occur upon elevation but the degree of cracking depends upon the amount of settlement that has occurred in your old foundation. If major damage were to occur it would be covered by our insurance.
