Hi, I'm the new guy. I have a question. How would you fix permanently, a block and pad foundation so that the moving of the house is completely eliminated? It was built on gumbo clay fill dirt and has been here 30 yrs. I had it raised and leveled and reinforced with additonal blocks and pads 3 yrs ago and completely redid the entire house dirt to sky. It is a wood frame house 32x60 single story. My idea is to do perimeter concrete piers or helical piers and then place 4 to 6 steel i beams or heavy treated timbers across the width of the house for the existing foundation to set on. What do ya'll think? Would something like this be rediculously expensive?
Waiting to hear!
