Lifting a house to replace the foundation – see the full story HERE
Some benefits of replacing a foundation:
- Proper waterproofing
- Adequate insulation
- New drain tile
- Ease of mechanical system replacement
- Improved wiring and piping
- Finished space with egress windows
This 1920’s farmhouse had a limestone foundation that would have to go.
Lifting the home around 18” provided space to replace mechanicals. Interestingly we discovered that the southern 25% of the home wasn’t even on a foundation or frost footings! This was the kitchen area. Soon to be fixed!
The house was lowered onto the new foundation and now level. Time to fix the drywall/plaster cracks and doors and windows that needed adjusting.
