Important Notes For Home Owners.
The floor joists of your home rest on a concrete block pier and steel “I” beam foundation.
The concrete block foundation can be adjusted height-wise by adding or taking away the wooden shims located on the top of the piers.
The four steel I beams which run the length of your home are flexible and will bend when the pier height is adjusted. So when we leave your home the steel I beams will be level and resting on top of the piers.
The wooden floors and walls inside of your home, whilst also flexible, have been painted and caulked over the years. Your home may have been unlevel for years, so even after the beams have been leveled, sometimes the floors will not immediately feel that they are level.
Depending on the severity of the re-level some cracking may occur requiring joints to be re-caulked. This is easy for the homeowner to rectify.
