Strong foundation, solid support
Are sagging, creaking floors causing you to long for days of being able to take quiet footsteps throughout your home? Is there an area where you notice a bounce when you step?
As time passes, the moisture in the air can wreak havoc on a home. The beams and wooden posts installed to structurally support homes can rot and settle as the soil they stand on shifts. When this happens, floor joists begin to sag, no longer providing the proper support to floorboards, and other structural issues can occur.
If you are noticing issues like this, the SmartJack System is the permanent foundation repair solution you need. Unlike wooden posts or shim repairs, attaching steel support beams to the floor joists provides a sturdy base at the floor. These galvanized steel posts can hold loads of more than 60,000 pounds to raise floors to a level, supported position. In addition to a 25-year warranty against material defects, there is also a five-year installation warranty on any other adjustments needed.
Homes with a dirt crawl space may also benefit from the addition of an encapsulation system. The CleanSpace vapor barrier system cuts down on moisture, which is the root of the problem, and creates an environment that is more energy efficient. When completing the waterproofing system with a sump pump and drainage pipes, water can be expelled before it causes any problems.
