When they moved into their house 1 ½ years ago, homeowners in Granville, OH, noticed a few sections of the upper floors were sagging and uneven. While they never go into the crawl space, they had a feeling there were issues with the support system in this area under the house.
The owners wanted to have this problem taken care of before any serious damage resulted. Once they learned about Ohio Basement Authority, they were eager to contact us to see how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who went into the crawl space to evaluate the condition of the support system. He found that some of the wooden floor joists were failing. He then discussed his findings with the homeowners, as well as their goals with a repair project, and he recommended one of our reliable foundation repair solutions.
Foreman Jose de Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then installed steel support beams reinforced by IntelliJacks underneath them.
IntelliJacks appear to be similar to typical jack posts, but they are far superior. The heavy-duty IntelliJacks are made of galvanized steel to enhance their durability, as well as resist rust, corrosion and rot. The IntelliJacks permanently stabilize the above floors and help raise them back to the proper level. They also are designed to prevent further settling. But if any settling occurs, the IntelliJacks can easily be adjusted. The IntelliJack system also can support vertical loads exceeding 60,000 lbs.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing their home will be a safer and structurally sound living environment because of this trustworthy repair project.
