A Guide to Building Leveling (Part Three)

Previously, we continued discussing what building leveling is and the signs you may encounter that can lead to its consideration. We covered telling signs, and what can cause buildings to be uneven. We then proceeded to discuss the process experts and engineers take in building leveling itself through completion. In this final part, we will continue discussing building leveling and the process and methods in making it happen.  

Throughout the planning process, engineers have a few methods to choose from depending on the constraints of the project. One of these methods is pier and beam leveling, which lifts and levels the building by placing support piers under beams or joists. They can also work with slab jacking, which injects a gout mixture beneath sunken slab to lift it back up into a level position. Another method is screw piles, which are screwed into the ground until they reach stable soil to give additional foundation support.  

One consistent item you will find are hydraulic jacks, which are typically used in tandem with any of the above methods. These powerful tools can lift and level specific and more targeted areas of a building.  

We hope you found this final part on the various reasons why people level their buildings to be insightful in your personal or professional life!
