Los Angeles, CA, July 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Julian Construction (http://www.julianconstruction.com), a Los Angeles based construction company that specializes in foundation repair and foundation construction, says floor leveling can fix sinking foundations that cause floors to sag, doors and windows not to open or close properly, and cracks in walls and tiles.
“Foundation sinking can be a problem for both new and older homes, says Julian De La Torre, founder of Julian Construction. “The process of floor leveling can return most floors to their original position and make the home safe.”
Floor leveling requires lifting up the foundation. First, the structure must be properly shored. Then beams are inserted under the house with jacks. The jacks are then raised evenly, and new piers are added to provide permanent support.
According to Julian, floor leveling should be done by an experienced professional to prevent further damage to the house. “Floor leveling is both an art and a science,” says Julian. “Any mistakes can cause more damage and even result in the house falling down.”

Founder and retrofit expert Julian De La Torre, along with his partner Shawn Kyles, an expert in foundation repair and house bolting, have retrofitted more than 6,600 homes, apartments and commercial properties since the early 1990s.
