Anyone have any experience doing house leveling with their renovations, and have a budget number they use $/sqft? This isn’t a repair I’ve ever done befor, so I’ve got no idea. Internet is all over the place, $2k to $10k depending on what you read.
This would be what I assume is a pretty involved leveling. It’s not just a slight slope and a few doors that are tight. It’s got a couple noticeable humps on either side of the house. Probably a couple inches
There are also 2 small sections of the floor that you can see through - 1” gaps between several wood panels. One he fit a 1’x2’ board in to an nailed down. The other the current owner indicated that he had just had covered with carpet and rented out. Now this is a lower income area. Does that really work as a repair in these types of areas?
Depends how bad is it. Is this pier and beam or slab foundation?
Wow , my bad. Thought I mentioned it was pier and beam.
Also curious about this. I've been looking into house leveling lately as the rehabbing I've done is in a city with basements. From my research, the techniques have changed quite a bit in the last few years.
Are you flipping or holding onto this one?
Yeah, the plan is to rent it out. $3k to level it, and the house of profitable. $10k and it just takes a few more smal budget slips to not be worth it.
I paid $3300 to level a 1600sf house but that also included rebuilding the framing and floor in the kitchen, laundry room and bathroom.
Thanks. That gives me another reference point. What I’m coming up with is about 2500 is the most likely number
