Home Leveling & Jacking
What goes up must come down! That may be true but it doesn't mean that you have to be on the losing end of this principle.
There are many different ways to do something. Coming up with the most effective and economical solution to solve the problem can save thousands of dollars.
CHW leveling service focuses on the best strategy to achieve the desired outcome without having to sacrifice your valuable preexisting renovations to fix the problem.
For example, one of my clients called 3 contractors to provide estimates to replace approximately 70 rotted rafters under the one-story bungalow with a 3-foot crawl space.
Three estimates came back with roughly the same strategy and price range. This includes: tearing up the subfloor, flooring, and baseboard In their home and performing their reconstruction from above. This is a correct and fair approach. All of the contractors' price points for reconstruction were also fair for that type of major reconstruction.
The cost of repairs we're ranging between $80,000 - $90,000. This price range was beyond their budget to achieve the desired results. They attempted to sell the home in "as is" condition. However, they were advised by an appraiser that the financial institutions would only finance at 20% down due to the home being a risk for caving in. Thus discouraging new home buyers.
The frustrated homeowners found CWH through an online search for a specialist in leveling homes. We were able to provide the most economical strategy to solve the problem at less than 1/3 the price. We replaced the 70 rafters from within the crawlspace without disturbing the interior of the home. We were able to jack a section of joists by fabricating jigs, extracting the old lumber and replacing them with new lumber. The project was completed by the anticipated completion date within the budget.
This is simply one example of my many experiences jacking and leveling other homes and structures. CWH is committed to out of the box strategies to keep our Ontario homes standing strong
