Shallow Footing

Absolute Foundation Solutions Shallow Footing House Leveling
Shallow Footing is the most traditional method of repair which uses concrete and blocks. Access holes are excavated along the footing where large steel-reinforced concrete pads are poured in place. The concrete is allowed to cure overnight, and jacks are used to bring the structure into a more level condition. Concrete blocks are used to maintain foundation position. This house leveling method adds width and depth to the footing base, making it less likely to settle.
