This homeowner in Princeton, IN noticed their floor was starting to sag in certain areas. They didn't want to take the chance of the problem becoming even bigger so they decided to give Healthy Spaces a call.
Our Design Specialist was quickly able to find the problem and designed a plan for this homeowner to fix their floors. Crawl spaces can experience structural sagging due to rot-weakened joists, girders, or posts. In this case, you can see the floor joist shows signs of compression due to the weight of the home - and too few support posts.
Healthy Spaces installed 4 SmartJack's, which provides solid support for sagging and undersized beams, restoring stability and straightness to sagging floor joists in a crawl space. A benefit to installing a SmartJack system is that they are made of galvanized steel for corrosion resistance. it can also support vertical loads exceeding 60,000 lbs.
