The weight of this house is being held up by planks of wood. This is risk because the wood is getting slowly crushed by the weight of the house and is starting to decompose due to mold.
With this quick "fix", the homeowner would have to adjust or add pieces of wood to keep their house semi- level. However, Smart Jacks are a one time, permanent SOLUTION.
We built a solid foundation that will confidently carry the weight of this home. To do this we dug out large squares, filled them with rocks, and inserted the base of the Smart Jacks. This provided a stable, load-bearing platform (solid ground) for the house to sit.
A steel column was cut to fit the specific size and needs of the crawl space. Yours could be taller or shorter but, could still be supported by a Smart Jack.
In this case, we added a steal beam for our Smart Jack to attach to. The beam allows for us to properly lift the house to its original position.
The Smart Jack assembly can be fitted to any size space, inside or outside. This solution is best used when you need to lift your floors and/or reduce floor "bouncing".
We helped create a create a safe environment by building a solid foundation in this house's crawl space. Everyone deserves to live in a stable home and our Smart Jack assembly provides that.
