Underpinning Slab Foundations Long Beach, NJ
Reasons to jack-up your house:
Prevent flooding: Jack-up a house to prevent flooding is an option popular with homeowners whose house is built too close to the water table, which causes frequent basement flooding. Repeated flooding damages foundations and shortens their lifespan. Not only will the house be taller than it used to be, but exposing the foundations will give you the opportunity to change old or defective drains and waterproof the foundations as well!
Repairing foundations: One of the main reasons for homeowners to lift is the finding of damaged foundations. Whether it is due to cracks too large to be sealed or concrete that crumbles without the possibility of repair, replacing foundations by lifting is a very real solution.
