What Causes Crawl Space Structural Problems
Structural problems in a crawl space are mainly caused by water damage. Moisture can wreak havoc on your crawl space in many different ways, and creating structural problems is one of them.
As the moisture enters your crawl space through vents, flooding, or cracks in the walls, it can create a very humid environment and weaken your wooden floor joists over time.
As the moisture sits on your wooden floor joists, it can cause them to rot or cause mold to grow. This can weaken their strength over time and cause issues when it comes to your crawl space’s structural stability.
Symptoms of Crawl Space Structural Damage
The most recognizable symptom of crawl space structural damage is when it impacts the inside of your home. These symptoms include sagging or uneven floors inside your home.
As the floor joist in your crawl space weaken, they can no longer support the weight of the floors above them. As a result, you may notice sinking floors inside your home. If you notice even the most subtle sign of a sinking floor, it’s best to contact a professional right away before the problem becomes worse.
Fixing Structural Problems with the SmartJack® System
If your home has uneven floors inside, we offer the SmartJack® system to raise your sunken floors back into place for permanent stability. Instead of completely replacing all of your damaged floor joists, the SmartJack® offers an easy solution to lift them back into place.
Once the SmartJack® is installed in your crawl space, the sagging floors in your home will also be lifted back into place with permanent stability.
How the SmartJack® System Works
The SmartJack® system is comprised of heavy-duty steel posts that are installed in your crawl space. They are adjusted to reach the desired height that is needed to lift your joists back into place, which will be determined by the crew during installation.
The Installation Process
First, our team will determine the proper location for each one to be installed. The footings will then be dug to the appropriate depth and then filled to create a very solid base.
After the footings have been installed, we will cut the SmartJack® column to size so that it’s the appropriate size for your crawl space.
Once everything is measured to the appropriate amount, the SmartJack® system will lift your sagging floor joists back into place.
Once installed, the SmartJack® system offers permanent stability for your floor joists and eliminates the structural problems that you were facing before.
