Saggy, bouncy floors can be caused by a variety of things: long spans between columns, missing mid-span support and sunk or damaged piers. Lowcountry Basement Systems can fix those issues with SmartJacks.
These columns were sinking into the ground. The additional span was sinking too.
Inadequate support columns allow flooring issues.
SmartJacks are crawl space support columns that can support 60,000 pounds of pressure each.
Eric P. of Moncks Corner, SC called Lowcountry Basement Systems to schedule a free inspection of his foundation. Eric was worried that his foundation had settled. He noticed cracks in his drywall that ran from the floor to the ceiling. He also had soft spots in his floor.
Lowcountry Basement Systems installed a SmartJack System to stabilize the sinking foundation. SmartJacks are crawl space support columns capable of supporting 60,000 pounds of pressure each. After the project was complete, Eric was able to comfortably walk on his floors once again!
