Lifting Your Home To Replace a Failing Foundation

We have been involved in foundation replacement projects in Connecticut since this problem was first discovered.

We’ll work with you and your general contractors to fix the structural problems caused by the mineral pyrrhotite in foundation walls.

Lifting the house is the safest and most efficient way to replace the foundation. Fireplaces, chimneys, decks, and additions can easily and safely be lifted along with the house.

Tips From the Connecticut Dept. of Consumer Protection

  • Hire a structural engineer to evaluate your home’s foundation and provide a written assessment
  • If you have an engineer’s report confirming that you have a deteriorating foundation, you can request that your town re-asses your home value. You might qualify for some tax relief (Under Public Act 16-45, as of October 1, 2016).
  • Your insurance company cannot cancel or not renew your homeowners policy because of a crumbling foundation.
  • Hire contractors who are registered and reputable. Be wary of anyone contacting you offering to repair or replace your foundation.
