Homeowners in Columbus, OH, were concerned with the structural stability of their home, and they wanted to correct any issues before they got worse. They were worried about possible foundation movement. A few of the upstairs doors would not shut completely, and they noticed some cracking around the doors by the ceiling.
They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our inspectors performed a thorough inspection of the home. He recommended a patented steel support system.
One of our expert crews installed eight IntelliJack Crawl Space Stabilizers to support two main girders in the crawl space.
Galvanized steel columns are connected to the beam or floor joists, and are tightened into place. The girder and floor joists are immediately stabilized, and lifting the above floors and walls back to level can be completed. A heavy-duty IntelliJack supports loads of more than 20,000 pounds, and it is covered by a lifetime warranty.
An exterior vent cover was also installed on the home's exterior to seal the crawl space vent from outside air.
The homeowners are pleased to have a home that will be structurally stable for years to come.
