Re: Question about a Leaning House
If there has been any remodeling since the house settled, it may be nearly impossible to fix without first undoing that remodeling.
Houses -- especially old ones -- do settle over time. Newer houses are less likely to settle because of the way modern building codes specify the installation of the foundation. By remodeling without first releveling, you end up with new stuff that's level and old stuff that's not level... if you level out the old stuff the new stuff won't be level anymore.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
