A beam begins to bend. When floor joists weaken and bend, the floor above your crawl space will be uneven and bouncy.
Your crawl space is an essential part of your home’s structural support. Crawl spaces bear the weight of rooms above and are connected to the foundation, which is why damage in the crawl space can have a significant impact your home.
Many crawl spaces have inadequate support, are decaying due to mold and water issues, or are sinking because of soil settlement. When one or more of these issues happens in your home, you will notice sagging floors above the crawl space that could eventually break down if not repaired.

A homeowner in Blacklick, OH, noticed her floor sagging in the crawl space area, and recognized the need for a proper structural support system. Several projects were performed by Ohio Basement Authority, but the majority of the work took place in the crawl space.
CrawlSeal liner with drainage matting was installed, along with CrawlDrain and a SafeDri sump pump to keep the area dry. IntelliJacks were added to raise the floor to the proper level. A vent cover was also installed and spray foam insulation was also used.
Now the homeowner has a dry, healthy crawl space that enhances her home's value as well as her peace of mind for the future!
Homeowners in Orient, OH, fell in love with their more than 100-year-old house when they purchased it 10 years ago. They recently began to refurbish the structure, and decided to start from the ground up.
The owners noticed their floors were beginning to sag, and they wanted to correct the issue before it got any worse.
They contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and one of our expert crews installed beam supports and several IntelliJack Crawl Space Stabilizers in the crawl space. These heavy-duty products will stop further settling and raise the above floor back up to the proper level.
The homeowners are pleased these installations will keep their house structurally supported for years to come.
Strong, straight & adjustable. IntelliJack™ supports solve sagging floor problems in crawl spaces by stabilizing & leveling sagging beams.
When joists in the crawl space begin to sag because of age, mold, or pest damage, the floors above them will sag as well. This leads to uneven or “bouncy” floors in the living space, which are unpleasant for you and your family to deal with and damage your home’s value.
The IntelliJack™ from Ohio Basement Authority is the solution to these problems. IntelliJack™ crawl space support posts provide an effective, durable solution for leveling and stabilizing damaged crawl spaces. Unlike concrete blocks that will only sink further into the ground, the IntelliJack™ provides a permanent solution.
This crawl space support system is made with strong, corrosion-resistant, galvanized steel. This ensures that it won’t develop rust or be damaged by pests. IntelliJack™ posts are installed on sturdy base that prevents further settlement. Most importantly, they are easily adjustable should you ever need to change their height. IntelliJacks™ are completely compatible with our crawl space encapsulation system.
