Crawl Space Structural Support Jacks Contractor Near Sparta, Vernon, West Milford

A sagging crawl space with concrete supports and wooden shimming a Blairstown crawl space

If you look carefully in this picture, you'll notice that the wood of the floor joist is beginning to show signs of severe damage due to failing crawl space supports.

As these supports begin to give way, the floors above can sag and interior walls may crack, resulting in expensive problems in your home.

Crawl spaces play a key role in your home's structural integrity because they are built directly underneath your home. Crawl spaces bear the weight of your home through the foundation walls and crawl space support columns.

    After:

    As you could see in the before pictures, we manipulated the wall as far back as we could (approximately 3 1/2"). Because of how violent a break this wall experienced, we had to excavate the foundation. We then opened the slab and installed a footing with rebar extending up the full height of the new wall. These areas were filled solid with concrete.

    We also sprayed a waterproof membrane with a drainage matting and footing drain to reduce static pressure on the foundation before backfill.

    Installing a new wall here was the best approach for this particular project. Needless to say, our homeowner is now comfortable utilizing this valuable area of the property.

Crawl Space Support System

Crawl space structural support jacks installed in Ogdensburg

The SmartJack® Crawl Space Stabilizer is the perfect solution for any crawl space with a failing structure. It is an adjustable supplemental support system that not only supports sagging crawl spaces, but also can be used for lifting failing joists or beams, restoring them to their original position.

The SmartJack® is available for installation throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including Sparta, Vernon, West Milford and nearby areas.

Foundation Failure

The foundation walls themselves can fail in a large number of ways. Most commonly, these walls will be damaged by foundation settling due to poor supporting soils. It's also very common for the walls to buckle inwards due to pressure from expansive soils outside the home.

If you have a structural issue with your foundation, it's important to contact a foundation specialist right away.

Sinking Crawl Space Supports

Sometimes, crawl space support pillars are built on soils that are not strong enough to support the weight of your home.

Over time, these supports will begin to sink into the soil. As they do, the floor they hold up will sink as well, leading to uneven floors and interior wall cracking.

Inadequate Structural Design

Sometimes, the contractor who builds a home will improperly space out the support beams that hold up your floor and interior structure.

When this happens, the floor may sink in the spans between each support, leading to damage to your home structure.

Rotting Floor Joists

When crawl spaces are damp, humid, or experience flooding, they become an ideal environment for mold and rot. Termites, carpenter ants, wood-eating beetles, and other damaging insects may also feed on organic materials in the crawl space.

As the wood deteriorates, it will no longer be able to support your home, leading to significant structural damage.
