After living in his house for several years, a homeowner in DeLand, FL, noticed some structural issues only seemed to be getting worse. Several areas of their first floor seemed to be soft, uneven, sagging, and squeaky.
The owner was concerned what would happen if he continued to ignore these problems, and he was motivated to fix them once and for all. He was eager to contact Florida Foundation Authority after finding our website.
One of our inspectors then visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the home and its problematic sagging floors. He ventured into the crawl space and found improper support systems in this area under the house. Our inspector found these systems in the crawl space to be failing and not properly supporting the above floors, thus resulting in sagging and uneven areas.
The inspector discussed his findings with the homeowner, and he then presented the homeowner with one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.
Foreman Jonathan Reyes then led his crew in installing steel support beams reinforced by IntelliJacks underneath them.
IntelliJacks appear to be similar to typical jack posts, but they are far superior. The heavy-duty IntelliJacks are made of galvanized steel to enhance their durability, as well as resist rust, corrosion, and rot. The IntelliJacks permanently stabilize the above floors and help raise them back to the proper level. They also are designed to prevent further settling. But if any settling occurs, the IntelliJacks can easily be adjusted. The IntelliJack system has an allowable load capacity of more than 24,000 pounds per support jack.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing his home will be a safer and structurally sound living environment because of this trustworthy repair project.
