Beams are often undersized, and many contractors use wooden posts that can rot, shift and settle. When this happens, floor joists sag and other structural problems occur.
At the beginning of the installation, our team of in-house crawl space repair contractors will excavate a 2' square, 2' deep hole at each SmartJack location.
2' by 2' hole.
Each of these holes will be prepared with engineered fill consisting of tightly compacted crushed stone.
A pre-cast concrete footing is placed on top of the engineered fill and carefully leveled. The footing serves as a stable base for the steel jack post, keeping it vertical and distributing the weight bearing on the post across a broad area of soil.
The hole is then back filled, and concrete is pours to complete the installation.
The SmartJack system provides solid support for sagging and undersized beams, restoring stability and straightness to sagging floor joists in a crawl space.
