This basement in Danielson, CT had inadequate support beams. We installed the SmartJack™ Support System to provide support for a new supplemental beam. The SmartJacks are supported by cast-in-place concrete footings. This leveled the floor and increased the stability of the house.
The basement of this house in Danielson, CT did not have a good support system. We replaced the concrete supports with the steel beams of our SmartJack™ Support System. These are held up with cast-in-place concrete footings. A new supplemental support beam was also added to increase stability and help level the floor of this basement.
The exterior walls of this home in Moosup, CT are cracking, showing structural problems in the foundation. The cracks are indicative of foundation settlement, when changing soil conditions cause a home to sink, settle, and crack. The homes stability will only decrease with time if action is not taken to secure the foundation. To repair this foundation, we installed our Push Pier System. Steel piers are driven deep into the soil and the weight of the home is transferred onto load bearing bedrock or strata. This home now has a strong foundation that will support it for years to come.
The walls of the basement of this Moosup, CT home are cracking. The crack has been covered up with paste in the homeowner's attempt to fix the problem, however this is only cosmetic and does not stabilize the foundation. These cracks indicate foundation settlement, caused by changes in soil conditions that make a home shift downwards. To stabilize this home, we installed our Foundation Supportworks' Push Pier System. Steel piers are driven deep into the earth and support the home by placing the weight on bedrock or load bearing strata. This home is now stable and the foundation will not settle or crack.
Concrete is a heavy material and so are the vehicles, machinery and structures that concrete slabs like this one are expected to support. Sometimes, the combined weight of concrete and what it supports causes concrete settlement to occur. The soil beneath the concrete compresses, and can cause major problems. PolyLEVEL is designed specifically to repair this type of problem. The polymer consists of two separate liquids that are combined right at the injection nozzle to trigger a chemical reaction that turns the blended ingredients into expanding, high-density foam. The foam flows into voids and between loose soil particles, expanding to about 15 times its initial volume. This expansive action effectively lifts settled concrete.
The shifting chimney is indicative of a sinking and settling foundation. In many scenarios, push piers not only stop settlement but lift the foundation back to its original position. Foundation Supportworks Push Piers are made of steel and are driven deep into the soil beneath a foundation to solve settlement problems.
Settling of columns in a crawlspace is most often caused by weak foundation soils. Over time, these soils shift and settle with changes in moisture content and density, causing movement of the columns and the beams above. The SmartJack is a supplemental support system that helps correct issues caused by inadequate structural design, weak foundation soils supporting columns or rot and weakening of the floor system due to high humidity and moisture levels within a crawlspace.
If your crawl space is experiencing structural damage like this one, the Foundation Supportworks' SmartJack® System is the answer. The system is manufactured from high-strength steel, providing the best opportunity to lift the above floors and walls back to their original, level position.
Sagging beams and floor joists are often the result of improper spacing of existing pier columns, effectively overloading the beams and causing them to bend and sag. Excess moisture and wood rot can also cause beams and joists to weaken over time. If your crawl space is experiencing structural damage, the Foundation Supportworks' SmartJack® System is the answer. Along with providing structural support, the SmartJack® System will level and stabilize the beams and floor joists in your crawlspace.
This home in Shrub Oak, NY had a large foundation problem. We permanently stabilized the foundation with our Push Pier System. The push piers are made of heavy duty steel, and they are connected to the foundation with a steel bracket. They are hydraulically deep into the earth, so that the weight of the home is transferred onto the load bearing strata below rather than softer soils above. This keeps the home stable for years to come.
The exterior crack on this Shrub Oak, NY home is a tell-tale sign of a foundation problem. We installed our Push Pier System to stabilize the home and make it safe for the family living within. The steel piers transfer the weight of the house onto load bearing strata far below in the earth. They will support the home for years to come.
