After purchasing a home in Thornville, OH, which had been in the family for 110 years, the homeowners became concerned about the sloping floor above the crawl space. Through a web search, they found Ohio Basement Authority and learned that we do free inspections and estimates, so they called us. One of our Appointment Center team members scheduled an appointment for less than a week after they called with one of our inspectors.
Our inspector thoroughly evaluated the crawl space and determined that there were structural issues. He said that these could be fixed with our IntelliJack system, replacement wooden beams, and he mentioned that advantages of also getting an access well.
After listening to our inspector's informative presentation, the homeowners decided to have these products installed.
IntelliJacks are steel supports which are used to hold up sagging floors above a crawl space. They are placed on specially engineered gravel which transfers the weight of the home onto stable ground. The wooden supports beams would also be replaced with new, not rotted ones and added more for extra stability.
An access well is a combination of a durable plastic crawl space access well and a door. It is designed to replace old concrete, wooden, or metal crawl space access wells, for a more attractive, long-lasting choice. It also provides an airtight cover that keeps out water, debris, and pests.
One of our expert installation crews came to the home and installed these products in less than two days. The sagging floors are now repaired, and the homeowners can safely enjoy their home which they say they plan to live in forever.
