Properly Encapsulating and Stabilizing a Crawl Space in Stuart, FL

Longtime homeowners in Stuart, FL, wanted to make sure their house would be a safe and healthy place to live. They noticed some issues with the crawl space under the house, including its lack of barrier from the earth and failing supports. They started to search for repair options, and in doing so, the owners came across Florida Foundation Authority’s website. They were motivated to contact us for further guidance and meet with one of our inspectors. Alex Graves then visited the home and completed a thorough evaluation of the crawl space. He then recommended the perfect repair solutions. Foreman Jonathan Reyes and his crew then transformed the crawl space by encapsulating it in CrawlSeal and stabilizing the above floor with IntelliJacks. CrawlSeal is a thick and durable liner that completely seals the crawl space to isolate it from the earth. It also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl space. A dehumidifier also was installed to clean and filter the air, control moisture and humidity, and reduce odors and the potential for mold growth. Several IntelliJacks also were installed to permanently stabilize the above floors and offer the best opportunity to lift them back to level. These heavy-duty supports are made of galvanized steel, which enhances their durability and makes them resistant to rust, corrosion and rot. They are designed to stop settlement, but can easily be adjusted if any settling occurs. The owners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have enhanced the health and safety of their living environment.

IntelliJacks Stabilize, Level Sagging Floors in Orlando, FL

During the two years that he has lived in his house, a homeowner in Orlando, FL, noticed a structural problem was worsening. Some areas of the floor felt soft and uneven, indicating the floor joists in the crawl space were sagging and failing to properly support the above floor. The homeowner wanted to address this problem before serious damage resulted, so he started to research repair options. He found information about Florida Foundation Authority online, and he was motivated to contact us for further guidance. Inspector Joseph Grimsley ventured into the tight crawl space to assess the condition of the floor joists and support system. The home, built in 1934, had wooden joists and supports, which is common for homes built at that time. But wood can easily rot and fail over time. Other repair attempts, like bottle jacks, also were not properly supporting the above floor. Joseph discussed his findings with the owner, and he then recommended one type of our many reliable repair solutions. One of our crews, led by Doug Secrest, then installed several IntelliJacks underneath new steel support beams in the crawl space. Made of galvanized steel, the heavy-duty IntelliJacks permanently stabilize the floor and floor joists. They prevent further sagging and offer the best opportunity to lift the sagging floor areas aback to level. IntelliJacks also will not rust or corrode, and they are designed to stop settling.  But if any settlement occurs, the IntelliJacks can easily be adjusted. The homeowner is pleased to now have a safe and stable living environment because of this trustworthy repair solution.

Concrete Lifting and Leveling to Improve Sidewalk Safety in Daytona Beach, FL

Longtime homeowners in Daytona Beach, FL, were growing concerned with some issues they noticed on their property. Several areas of concrete along the sidewalk and driveway were cracking and uneven, resulting in unsightly tripping hazards. Hoping to address these problems before any serious injury or damage resulted, the owners started to search for repairs. During their research, the owners came across Florida Foundation Authority’s website, and they were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the concrete. Our inspector then presented the owners with the perfect state-of-the-art repair solution to their problems. Foreman Joshua Ortiz and his crew then used the PolyRenewal system to lift, level and stabilize the concrete. Small holes were first drilled into the concrete and injection ports were placed in these holes. Special equipment was then used to inject high-density polyurethane underneath the sinking slabs. The material expands to fill any voids, and this lifts and levels the slabs. While PolyRenewal is lightweight, it is extremely durable. It will not wash out, and its quick cure time allows for normal traffic to resume just 15 minutes after installation. Joint sealant also was used to fill and repair the cracks and joints, as well as protect the newly leveled concrete.
