Ward Construction provides services in the greater San Francisco Bay Area including, Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, San Francisco, Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Orinda, Moraga, Hayward, Marin and other East Bay and North Bay cities.

Here’s an example of the type of services provided:

We will lift a 20 feet long portion of the left side of your home, starting at the front corner, to make it better conform with the surrounding floor elevations.

We will record the differential elevations of your home on a rough plan before leveling and after leveling so you have a record of what was done.

Your home will be leveled from its existing foundation and no additional foundation work is included in this recommendation. As the house is raised, a crack will appear between the top of the foundation and the framing. We will grout this crack as necessary, with a high strength non-shrink grout, to support the house but it will be visible and will need additional cosmetic work later which is not included in our estimate.

We will extend the foundation bolts as necessary to provide anchorage. If the foundation bolts are missing or for some reason cannot be extended, we will secure the frame to the foundation with another method suited to the particular construction of the building. There may be an additional charge for attachment if the bolts are missing or if the building department requires special inspections for this work.

Owner to obtain permit.

In conjunction with the above, we will lift the left side of the front entry. If the front steps prohibit lifting, additional costs may be incurred.
