House lifting / raising

House lifting is the process of separating a building from its foundation and temporarily lifting it with hydraulic screw jacks. The process is the first step in structure relocation in which the building is moved to a different location.

House Leveling

House leveling is a term used to describe the process of lifting a home as close to its original state as possible. Leveling a house is usually accomplished by performing foundation repair. A home that is sinking at one end or multiple places likely has a structural problem.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair and cracking can present significant structural problems for your home along with a reduction in the home's value. Repairing the foundation of a home is time sensitive—if not repaired quickly, it can lead to additional problems that are unrepairable, and the structure will be unsafe to live in.

Foundation Raising

Raising a foundation is an extreme form of repair in which a house is lifted, the old foundation is removed and a new one is built. This is done in situations where the house is intact, but the supporting structure has extreme damage.

Foundation Leveling

The term “foundation leveling” refers to the process of leveling an uneven concrete slab, crawl space or basement foundation to a satisfactory elevation. Foundation leveling can be accomplished using a wide-variety of different foundation repair methods.

Equipment & Storage

Heavy Equipment & Storage space is a must-have for your super heavy and awkwardly sized equipment, parts, tools, and machinery. WA conveniently store heavy equipment and bulk items from floor to ceiling.

Pyrrhotite Problems

If pyrite or pyrrhotite are present in the rocks underneath buildings, the swelling can push on the foundation, walls, and basement floor of the building, causing cracks and other structural damage. In some cases, groundwater can then transport sulfates into the cracked foundation, causing further damage.

Crumbling Foundations

Presence of pyrrhotite in the concrete combined with moisture and oxygen. Critical element is moisture and the interaction of pyrrhotite with moisture and oxygen. Homes with small amounts of pyrrhotite (less than 0.3%) still can experience crumbling foundations.
