Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What all can you level?
A: No matter what you call it we can level it:
- Modular Homes
- Manufactured Homes
- Mobile Homes
We also do cottages and cabins, but a site visit is required to confirm we will be able to get results as each one may be different.
Q: Will leveling my home make my door close, latch and lock?
A: There is a very good chance the cause of this is from being out of level, having a square frame will get all your door jams and frames sitting square, thus allowing it to close properly.
Q: I have a door that always swings open or shut, will levelling fix this?
A: Yes, when we are done your doors should stay where you leave them, so no more door stops are required to keep them open!
Q: I don’t want my whole home levelled, there is just 1 corner causing problems.
A: We will always recommend levelling the whole home as once things are out they keep getting worse faster than if everything was perfectly balanced.
We are happy to discuss with you about the possibility of a reduced rate for a partial level, but you will always get the best value having it completely done.
Q: I don’t want to ever have a freeze-up, what should I do?
A: There are multiple things to do to limit the chance of a freeze-up. Stacking them together gets you the best chance. Heat tape and insulated skirting are the most common solution. Doing a complete crawl space encapsulation with temperature control will give you the ultimate protection against winter conditions.
Q: What is crawl space encapsulation?
A: In addition to having insulated skirting, we install a heavy-duty vapour barrier on the ground and up the skirting to completely seal the crawl space from drafts, insects and more. We then install powered vents to control humidity, one of the best ventilation options is to pull warm air from the house to heat the space.
Q: The ground under my home already has poly, do I need the space encapsulated?
A: The ground poly (assuming it has no holes, rips and tears) helps keep some moisture from raising into the crawlspace from the ground, but being vented to the outside allows warm moist air into the crawl space during the warm months. Not only will our encapsulation properly keep ground moisture out, but it will also help prevent moisture from the outside air from entering.
Q: Why does it matter if I have moisture under my home?
A: Moisture under the home promotes mould growth, rot and attracts insects and other unwanted effects. The air quality under your home is directly correlated to the air quality inside the home as a large portion of the air from your crawlspace makes its way up into the living space of your home.
Q: Where are you based out of?
A: We are based out of the Sturgeon County
Q: How do I know if I need to replace my current blocking with new cribbing?
A: Rot due to not originally using proper lumber is one of the main reason to replace the blocking.
Q: My current loading point blocks are sunk into the ground, do I need to replace them?
A: If they are treated for ground contact and are not rotting there is no harm having them inset into the ground, this is common over time.
Q: What Payment methods do you accept?
A: We accept credit card, E-transfers, bank drafts and offer financing
