All-Dry of the Carolinas Case Studies: SmartJacks in Inman, SC crawlspace

Thursday, February 13th, 2020 by Abby Baldwin

Challenge

Foundation issues are a problem that should never be put on hold. As much as we want it to be able to stop, the problem will grow and become worse as time passes. This Inman, SC homeowner had major issues in the crawlspace that was causing her floors to sag, the windows to shake, and the hardwood floor to split. The moister under the home had caused the soil and foundation to weaken and shift. Once the moister starts to affect the soil, normal support systems will start to skin into the ground, leaving the crawlspace without any support. But our All-Dry of the Carolinas team has the perfect permanent solution to this issue!

Solution

When our team came to rectify the problem they brought along SmartJacks. The SmartJacks were placed under the floor joist of the home and then used to push the floors back into place. To install it, we excavate a two-foot cube at each SmartJack location. The hole is then filled with concrete or engineered to create a stable, loadbearing footing. The SmartJack sits on top of it with a custom-engineered base to prevent the support system from sinking when the moister starts to affect the soil. SmartJacks are then adjusted to the perfect position to support the floor joist of the home. This SmartJack technology, is made of steel which will not rust when exposed to moister and it can also hold over 60,000 pounds! This product was able to save this homes sagging floor problem.
