SmartJacks Rise to the Occasion in Lansing, MI
This customer gave us a call after noticing long cracks across the walls and ceiling in their sun room. The room was held up by wood pillars installed into the deck area outside. The weight of the room became too much for the pillars to hold and the room began to shift. This was evident to both the homeowner and our crew because of the uneven floor and cracked walls. It was a different problem, but not out of our wheelhouse.
Lifting failing foundations and floor joists is nothing new to us over at Ayers. In fact, it’s pretty common. To treat this problem and ensure that it won’t return, we use SmartJacks. The great benefit of using SmartJacks for this job, instead of the already in place wood pillars, is that they were designed for heavy duty use. The support system is mostly used to repair crawl spaces and raise the above floors back to their original position, so there was no doubt that the SmartJacks could handle the weight. The team used 6 steel SmartJacks and installed them deep into the soil with a concrete fill. This way the homeowner can rest assured that the support system won’t fail, even if the ground does. If you’re looking for an expert solution to your sagging floor and a team that will have fun while installing it, then give us a call and ask if the SmartJack support system could help you.
WaterGuard Built Into Partial System In Lansing, MI
Sharon had a partial basement waterproofing system installed by another company several years ago. Now she was looking to have a system installed throughout so that the basement can stay completely dry. Our team installed a WaterGuard perimeter drainage system along the walls, tying into the existing system to create one continuous protective unit. WaterGuard is a french drain system that sits on the home's footing and gathers moisture along the base of the wall and directs it inconspicuously to the sump pump system.
Select Area Of Lansing, MI Basement WaterGuarded
Joan called about a wet area of her basement. It was just a small area a few feet in width that was seeing water coming in. With an existing sump pump the fix was quite simple. Along the wet wall, we installed our WaterGuard drainage system. This required a small portion of the drywall, about 2 feet up from the ground, to be removed. We then removed some of the concrete floor to reveal the home's footing. The drain was set in place right on the footing and conrete was replaced over top. WaterGuard will collect moisture from the walls and from the seam where the floor and walls meet. The drain is then tied into the sump pump system to allow for that moisture to be removed from the home. The drywall was replaced and now the basement is safe from the puddles that had been plaguing it for months.
