Can't play marbles

In reply to concrete slab foundation unlevel by John on April 20th, 2002 10:33 AM [Go to top of thread]

in that house.If you haven't bought the house yet,walk away this is a"money-pit".I Have leveled floors inside houses,the worst being 3inches front to back in 50feet.That's less than 1/16inch per foot and in a 10foot room it's 0"to5/8"plus plywood.Every thing has to come out first,trim,doors,base cabs,etc,then it all has to be reinstalled and the busted stuff replaced.Then you have to extend plumbing,heat and return ducts,etc,etc,etc....I have done this work and it is very expensive and time consuming.6inches!!I could not sleep at night knowing I built a house on a foundation that far off.Walk away! Luck
