Matt L. of Saint Simmons Island, GA called Lowcountry Basement Systems to help him with his foundation settlement problem. Matt was noticed new cracks in his drywall and some of his doors would not shut properly. Last year, he said, the doors worked just fine but lately something just wasn’t right.
Lowcountry Basement Systems sent an inspector to Matt’s house to research the settlement issue. The inspector identified the problem. The new addition to the home was sinking.
The inspector recommended installing four steel zinc plated 8’ PowerBrace beams in a continuous line running across multiple joists. The PowerBrace beams would be supported by a total of six SmartJacks, each capable of supporting 60,000 lbs of pressure.
The SmartJacks were cut to custom heights prior to installation. The project took one day to complete.
