SmartJacks Support a Sagging Floor in Preque Isle, MI
It might be hard to tell in the before photo of this cottage crawl space, but the ceiling is starting to slope. The ceilings of crawl spaces are called floor joists, and they are directly responsible for the structural integrity of the floor above them, along with anything else that depends on that floor. While a sloping floor is by no means a good thing, it isn’t a death sentence for your house, either. It’s pretty common for the wood joists in a crawl space to begin to rot due to exposure to moisture and other crawl space conditions. That is exactly why, as foundation experts, we use a permanent solution to stop sloping floors. The added support in the after photo is the SmartJack system. As you can see, the SmartJacks were attached at the top to the wood support beam that holds up the floor joists and secured into the ground with a backfill combination of gravel and concrete. The SmartJacks won’t start to sink or slip away, so neither will the crawl space. SmartJacks are the perfect solution for all sagging crawl spaces.
SmartJacks Stabilize Summer Cottage in Presque Isle
This summer cottage in Presque Isle, MI was built in the early 70’s, and over the years, the walls and floors in the home had become a little unstable. Our System Design Specialist entered the cinderblock-walled crawl space to install the SmartJack system to address this problem. Three high strength, steel support beams were installed along the floor joists then tightened in place to immediately stabilize the joist and lift the walls and floors back to their original position. The only system of its kind to address problem soils beneath the home, SmartJacks’ custom-designed structural footing base is engineered to effectively bear the weight of the home. This long-term solution will allow this cottage to see many more summers!
Presque Isle, MI Crawl Space Fixed After Contractor Split
This crawl space in Presque Isle, MI was experiencing some issues with two walls where blocks were shifting. They had a contractor come in and lift the home but he only ended up making things worse. To paint and even more grim picture, once the problems got bigger, the contractor split. That's when the homeowner called us to fix the issue. The fix for this home was a couple of new steel beams to support the floor above. The beams were held in place by SmartJacks. SmartJacks are incredibly strong and their adjustable. They are a homeowners best option for lifting a sagging floor. Along the walls where blocks were shifting, we used wall anchors and PowerBraces. With wall anchors, large steel plates on the interior are connected to steel Geo-Lock earth anchors outside which help to hold the wall in place and possibly straighten it over time. PowerBraces work great when digging is not an option outside. PowerBraces are a sort of floor-to-ceiling zinc coated steel beam that support the home and offers a unique tightening option to possibly straighten the wall over time.
