During the 10 years they have lived in their house, homeowners in Cedarville, OH, noticed a lingering problem was only continuing to worsen. There were several areas of the upper floors of the home that appeared to be sagging and uneven. These can be signs of settlement or failing supports.
The owners wanted to ensure the safety and stability of their more than 100-year-old home, so they wanted to have these issues fixed once and for all. After they learned about Ohio Basement Authority, the owners were eager to contact us for further assistance. They met with one of our inspectors who completed a thorough evaluation of the old home and its support system. He found some of the old wooden floor joists and supports were bowing and failing to support the upper floors. Our inspector then suggested one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.
One of our crews then installed several new steel support beams, which were further supported by IntelliJacks. Unlike typical jack posts, the heavy-duty IntelliJacks are made of galvanized steel to enhance their durability. This also makes them rust and corrosion resistant. 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 homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair project has helped them create a safe and stable home.
