Home Foundation Repair Case Studies: Sinking, Settling Home Stabilized WIth SmartJacks, Helical Piers in Danville, GA

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 by Michael Connolly


Ricky D. of Danville, GA owned a 128-year-old home that was sinking and settling on one side. The home was moved 11 years ago; that’s when Ricky started to notice the sinking. Ricky called Lowcountry Basement Systems for help.


Lowcountry Basement Systems recommended stabilizing the sinking wall with seven galvanized steel helical piers. Additional support would be needed under the home in the crawl space. It was recommended to install six SmartJacks under the home to stabilize the subfloor.

SmartJack crawl space piers are custom-cut to size, based on the height of the crawl space. A threaded post cap allows the floor to be lifted. All SmartJack parts are protected against rust with a thick galvanized coating.

Ricky approved the project and the Lowcountry Basement Systems team was able to stabilize the foundation in three days. Ricky was very happy to have his 128-year-old home protected!
