Visit our book store and take a look at the Releveling Kit from Aberdeen Repair

If you are inclined to relevel or level your own home this instruction kit will show you step-by-step how to do the leveling process yourself. Kit includes complete step-by-step instructions and a waterline level

If your not inclined to do the releveling yourself, then use these instructions and the enclosed waterline level to determine whether or not your home is out of level. Or you can simply use this information to become a better-informed consumer and give yourself the upper hand when it comes to hiring a contractor to do the job.

The detailed instructions will show you how to do the following:


  • learn the causes of why your home becomes unlevel
  • learn how to set-up, calibrate and read a waterline level
  • determine where your home is unlevel and by how much
  • learn what to watch-out for before, during and after releveling your home
  • learn proper jack placement
  • learn how to safely jack-up your home

    A note, if your not experienced in leveling, doing a double wide might not be the best idea. Single wide okay, but attempting a first try on a double is a horse of a different color. Tom

    Larry,
    Contact the manufacturer of your home, ask for the service department. Ask for a copy of their setup manual. The manufacturer may ask for a slight fee for the manual and shipping. These manuals are very easy to read with step by step instructions and are specific to only the manufactueres homes. Even if the home is older, setup manuals should still be available.

    Hello guys, I ran into the same problem with my singlewide home and there are cracks in the ceiling only in the living room area only but nothing creaks when I walk on the floor. Could this still mean that it is a leveling problem? Oh, and by the way, the link you provided to the website for the releveling kit is dead. Please fix.
