Permanent House Leveling Systems

Permanent House Leveling Systems

FailSafe has developed a range of permanently installed adjustable house jacking & leveling systems to meet the needs of homeowners who live in residential areas that experience a high degree of ground movement. Severe damage to the house structure can occur if continuous ground movement is ignored.

These customized systems offer a practical solution to homeowners who want to remain on a property prone to ground movement but who do not want to move their entire house to another property.

Once installed, they provide the homeowner or another contractor with the ability to respond to ground movement on an ongoing basis. The systems are uniquely designed for each house and can be used to complete height and leveling adjustments in order to prevent further deterioration of the structure.

FailSafe’s permanently installed adjustable house jacking & leveling systems can be installed for new home applications or can be installed as part of a foundation retrofit.

  1. Reinforced Concrete Pads
  2. High Capacity Adjustment Jacks (Pair)
  3. Back Bone Steel Beam
  4. Diagonal Bracing

  6. Nailer Board
  7. Main Floor Joists
  8. Back Bone - Upper Frame Connection
  9. Upper Frame Beam Connection
  10. Tornado Cable Anchor
  11. Protective Skirt

Pairs of leveling jacks are anchored to reinforced Concrete pads. The leveling jacks are connected by a common drive shaft and function in tandem. Each pair of jacks serve as a saddle that for the backbone beams. The backbone beams support the upper frame which in turn supports the main floor joists of the structure to be leveled. When the jacks are extended the structure is raised and when the jacks are retracted, the structure is lowered. Each pair of jacks operates independently of the others to allow proper leveling adjustment. A framed pressure treated plywood skirt is attached to the main floor joists after adjustment.

Wall jacks are anchored into the external face of the concrete foundation wall at evenly spaced intervals. The jacks are oriented such that when the jack is extended, the leg and foot of the jack move upward; and when the jack is retracted, the leg and foot of the jack move downward. A modified steel beam is positioned on top of the jack feet such that when the jack is extended, the beam is raised; and when the jack is retracted, the beam is lowered. A wood plate is attached to the upper face of the steel support beam and fastened to the floor deck of the structure. Protective shrouds prevent backfill from interfering with the operation of the jacks. Removable shroud tops allow access for the adjustment handles when required. The adjustment gap is shimmed or filled with non-compacting concrete grout.

Nothing compares to the safety, accessibility and timesaving provided by the Atlas lifting system.

Fail Safe has done a number of projects in Regina for both my clients and myself over the past five years and I recommended them to a number of my neighbours at Crooked Lake after the 2014 flood. I have been in the construction/project management business for 40 years and seen many house lifting systems and processes but nothing compares to the safety, accessibility and timesaving provided by the Atlas lifting system. And they are a very professional outfit to work with.
