Homeowner Mike, who lives in Boonville, IN, has noticed that his floors have begun to slowly sag over the years. After doing some research, he reached out to Healthy Spaces to have his situation assessed. Design Specialist, Donnie Stuteville, looked at her issue and proposed him a SmartJack System.
The SmartJack System is made of zinc-plate and hot-dip galvanized steel to prevent rust and eliminate weakening from moisture, mold, and wood rot. They had a load capacity of more than 60,000 pounds making them ideal for stabilizing a home's sagging floor. The concrete is dug up and filled with tightly-compacted crushed stone to provide the proper weight barring exertion needed for each column. Once the holes are filled, the SmartJacks are installed and cemented down to the floor and connected to the girder system. Each SmartJack is tightened to permanently stabilize the floor, and even potentially lift the floors back to level.
