Home Foundation Repair Case Studies: Sagging Floor Receives Boost from SmartJacks® and Joist Assists
The wooden floors of Mr. Thompson’s new home began to sag and bounce two years after it was built. He called Lowcountry Basement Systems to fix his foundation problem.
Lowcountry Basement Systems installed two PowerBrace Beams across multiple joists. Under the PowerBrace Beams, four SmartJacks were installed to push the subfloor back into place. The SmartJacks and PowerBrace Beams provided a long-term solution to Mr. Thompson’s foundation problem. Ten Joist Assist Brackets were also installed to protect the life of the joists.
The project took one day.
Joist Assist Brackets: 10
The completed project provided an additional 240,000 pounds of support to the home's foundation.
