My house sits appx. 6" on average above ground on blocks. It is apparent that my backside is no longer level. I have only gotten one estimate so far, and already feel like, I have been given an estimate for more than what needs to be done. Any pointers on what to be aware of would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much.

Hi Doris,
It's difficult to know what exactly is involved without seeing what's going on.
It sounds like there could be alot of work involved. I would suggest getting at least 3 estimates. If there is a huge difference in price range, I would go with who you feel the most comfortable with.
The highest is not always best, neither is the lowest. You need to do some homework and sometimes go with your gut.
At the top of this page is a tab " find a pro " which could be helpful for finding a reliable contractor in your area.
Hope this helps
