I just came across a foundation repair report, and I noticed that the area of the home that most significantly deviated (bottom left) from the reference point was the only part not stabilized. What's the rationale for such a partial stabilization? It's a 1 story home with the same ceiling height throughout, built on a slab.

  • Without being able to read the report we can only guess. I know is some cases jacking the slab can cause plumbing issues (as in both drain and supply failures). The report may suggest that that area is stable where the other areas were not and had to be stabilized. In some cases it is better to leave things as they are because plumbing under the slab is a pain to repair and quite costly. – Ed Beal Aug 13 at 13:53
  • @EdBeal unfortunately, the report does not mention anything relevant, only implies a successful post-stabilization plumbing test since a warranty was granted. – user2647513 Aug 13 at 15:22

After seeing the 2nd question the home is brick faced. Based on this information I believe they would not want to do any lifting as the brick work would be damaged especially in the sections that have been repointed. The assessment of the current soil conditions must be stable so no work would be needed in that area.
