Cracks in the drywall throughout the house are a good indicator of settlement and maybe more obvious in the uppermost levels of your house.
The common signs of drywall cracks are cracks off the corners of doors and windows, cracks that follow drywall seams, and drywall tape buckling, pulling or ripping.
This SmartJack system will permanently stabilize and level the girders and floor joists in a crawl space. They don't replace the existing columns and piers but add strength and stability to what is there.
The SmartJack is strong and supports loads of more than 60,000lbs. It is adjustable and can be installed in problem soils. It also prooves that the system will never be susceptible to mold, moisture, and wood rot.
Jeannine was no stranger to Healthy Spaces when she called about her foundation issues. She had her crawl space encapsulated by us prior and it was in great condition. She had noticed some thin cracks in her walls, and as time went on it seemed to be getting worse. Along with that, she noticed her floors sagging and buckling as well. With living on a large hill, she thought her foundation may be settling and causing the issues she was experiencing, and she was exactly right.
Our Design Specialist, Damon Cheatham, came out to Jeannine's home to do a thorough inspection of her crawl space to look for any foundation issues. She showed him the cracks that had been forming in her walls and he proposed his thoughts. A new SmartJack System would be the best fit for this home.
After the system was installed, Jeannine instantly had peace of mind. One of our service technicians comes out yearly to tighten her SmartJacks, as well as performing an inspection of her crawl space. Her home is healthy and in great condition.
