What is the IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jack?
The IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jack is a state-of-the-art support system designed to address the structural issues caused by sagging, bouncy, and uneven floors.
These steel support posts are installed beneath the floor joists and attached securely to the support beams above, providing unparalleled stability and strength to the weakened floor structure.
With an allowable load capacity exceeding 24,000 lbs. per jack, the IntelliJack™ system ensures your floors are robustly supported, eliminating bounciness and unevenness. This system is extensively tested and certified to meet the highest industry safety standards.
Unlike traditional support methods, our crawl space jacks are adjustable, allowing for precision alignment and ongoing stability, ensuring your home’s structural integrity is maintained over time.
This crawl space repair is part of a more extensive whole-home solution, aiming not just to fix the immediate problem but to ensure the longevity and safety of your entire house.
Signs You Need Crawl Space Jacks
Recognizing the signs of sagging floors and joist damage is crucial to addressing the issue promptly. Here are some indicators that your home might need crawl space support:
- Sagging floors
- Bouncy floors
- Uneven floors
- Creaking noises from the floors
- Sticking windows and doors
- Drywall cracks in walls or ceilings
- Visible sagging from the outside of the house
- High indoor humidity
- Musty smells from the crawl space
These symptoms suggest that your home’s structural integrity is compromised, and immediate action is needed to prevent further damage and ensure the safety and comfort of your living space.
Is Crawl Space Repair Necessary?
Yes, addressing issues in your crawl space is imperative, as is taking the right approach to repair them. Neglecting signs of sagging and bounciness in your floors can lead to severe structural damage, resulting in higher repair costs and potential safety hazards over time.
Don’t settle for quick fixes from big-box stores. These temporary solutions fail to address the root cause of crawl space problems. Venturing into your crawl space can also be dangerous; leaving the inspection and repairs to trained professionals with the right tools, training, solutions, and protective gear is best.
