I had my house leveled in November 2010. It is pier and beam. Then had all the cracks repaired in the house. After about 10 months the leveling failed couldn't lock the front door cracks all over the house and the brick veneer(which goes about a third of the way up in front of the house) began to pull away from the house. Where holes were dug to place the piers on the outside of the house,I had to consistently fill sinkholes every time it rained. The tiles fell off the front of the porch. The company came back out and readjusted the foundation. But the brick was still bowing with a gap between the house and the brick. They said it would go back into place. Now, 10 months later the same thing has happened-failed again with additional cracks nails head poking out in two areas, humps in two rooms and the brick veneer had sunk worse with a larger gap, more sinkholes. They came back out and readjusted again. There was nothing wrong with the brick veneer before I initially had the house leveled. As a matter of fact the inside now looks worse than prior to having all this work done. The company is not taking any responsibility for the brick sagging and bowing saying that it is on a seperate footing. I am not sure this is true. They also said that the cracks can be due to normal movement. I have lived here for 20 years and understand the normal cracking but all this is over and above what I consider normal. They did do some patching on the brick but now the attached brick planter is not level and the veneer is not straight. After one week a crack on the bedroom ceiling is getting bigger and the baseboards have seperation lines. this has been a two year nightmare! The company also said that the brick was cosmetic ane woluld not take any responsibility for any damage. Inside as well. Should the brick have come loose from the house? If the brick is on a seperate footing should this have been taken into consideration from the beginning? What would cause the foundation work to fail twice?
