Solution: Re-leveling

   

  1. Relevel and reinforce or replace defective framing.
  2. Relevel and reinforse defective beam or column. Sometimes adding one or more columns is more cost effective than renovating the existing ones.
  3. Underpin settling foundation with one of the appropriate foundation underpinning technologies (see solutions for diagonal cracking walls).
