Basement Wall Cracks and Sagging Floors Solved with SmartJack Support System in South Rockwood, MI
Remodeling a home has many benefits, including, increasing the property value, improving the quality of life for the homeowners and even retaining peace of mind knowing the home is in good shape. That's exactly what these homeowners in South Rockwood, MI had in mind when they renovated their property a few years ago. The amount of time and money put into renovating the home was in jeopardy when they had begun to notice the drywall splitting in the center of their home. Not wanting to waste any time and risk further damage, these homeowners decided they needed to address the problem head-on. After consulting with friends and family about possible causes of splitting drywall, they were recommended to HomeSpec BasementFix, by a friend who recently had basement waterproofing done, as one of the best foundation repair companies nearby. Our Project Manager, who understood the homeowners situation and had experience in foundation repair, was sent to the South Rockwood property to provide a free detailed inspection. When discussing the homeowners concerns, it was brought to our attention that the crawl space was damp and had been showing signs of mold. Understanding this to be a weakened support post-issue, our project manager recommended the SmartJack Support System to restore integrity to the crawl space and level out the floors, preventing any further cracks from forming in the walls. Over time, due to humid conditions in the crawl space, traditional wooden support joists can be subject to mold, pest damage, and wood rot. This failing structural support system can cause long term damage and create future concerns for the homeowner. The SmartJack Support System solves this structural integrity problem by installing a base of crushed gravel to support the jacks and prevent them from sinking into the soil, and galvanized steel beams that are adjustable year-round to prevent mold, and pest damage. The SmartJack Support System is capable of supporting loads of up to 60,000 lbs., ensuring these homeowners retain long term peace of mind with this ideal solution.With the crawl space successfully supported and the homeowners thankful the money and effort they put into the renovations didn't go to waste over a failing support system, they were more than happy to receive a small referral discount from HomeSpec BasementFix for the services provided.
