We have been inundated with requests to repair block and concrete foundations as a result of storm damage from Sandy.Although in some cases it may look like there is little hope of salvaging a damaged foundation with skill and working with the right house mover it can be successfully accomplished.
The complete process needs to be assessed thoroughly and all possible scenarios discussed prior to starting this tricky process. The key is good communication with the company chosen the hold the house up while the new foundation is being constructed. Here years of skill in all areas of the project is needed.
House movers are not all the same and when working on a project to either save a home with a seriously compromised foundation or one that needs to be raised to the new FEMA flood plane the risk here is immense. There is no room for error since if done incorrectly the house can be lost or if held up improperly the risk for loose of life of those working on it is also great.
