Foundation settled 5" in one corner

Posted by Glenn on October 25th, 2001 10:51 AM

Just bought an 80-year-old Cape Cod. One corner of
the foundation has settled about 5" , leaving a
crack on the basement floor that extends across the
floor at about a 45 degree angle from points about
10' from each side of the corner. It's also resulted
in some sloped floors upstairs. I'd like to
cut the foundation bolts and jack up that corner of
the house to bring things into level again. The
settling appears to be old and no new movement has
occurred in recent years. Any suggestions on the
best way to jack up the corner?
