Telepost Adjustment

Helping Level Your Home



Teleposts (or Jack Post) are a common fixture in most basements. These steel posts are attached to foundation pads under the basement floor and to beams, joists, or flooring above.

Over time, the foundation of a home can shift, leading to uneven floors and cracking drywall. Our experts can adjust the teleposts in your home to ensure that everything is level and solid, preventing costly repairs down the road.

Never adjust support teleposts by large amounts. Adjust them by small amounts at a time. , especially on newer homes.
Adjusting a telepost too quickly or improperly may cause large cracks to appear in walls. Flooring also may become loose or squeaky.
A general rule of thumb is to do adjustments no more than one-half a turn at a time
