Did you know crawl spaces are built directly beneath your home? This space is essential to your home’s structure and overall health. They bear the weight of foundation walls with crawl space support columns. But many of these spaces are designed poorly and the support posts are unable to ear the weight of your home. Let’s break down the signs and solutions of when your home may need crawl space jacks.
Basement floors directly above a crawl space most commonly sag or slope. This happens because of high humidity and is caused by having the space unsealed and open to the outside. The high humidity causes the beams or floor joist to rot or decay and become weak, not supporting the floor fully.
Now that we have identified the sign that your crawl space needs for support, let’s break down the solution. Midwest Foundation Repair stabilizes and supports crawl spaces with SmartJacks. These are adjustable supplemental support systems used for sagging floors and failing crawl spaces.
