If you’re leveling a house, steel shims are an essential part of the process. Steel shims are thin metal plates that you place under the house’s joists to level them out. Without steel shims, your house would be uneven and unstable.
Steel shims come in different sizes, so you’ll need to choose the right size for your project. The most common sizes are 1/8 inch, 1/4 inch, and 1/2 inch. You can also find steel shims in other sizes, such as 3/4 inch and 1 inch.
To install steel shims, you’ll need a few tools. A hammer is the most important tool, as you’ll need it to drive the shims into place. A level is also helpful, so you can make sure the shims are level before you nail them into place.
