A beam begins to bend. When floor joists weaken and bend, the floor above your crawl space will be uneven and bouncy.
Your crawl space is an essential part of your home’s structural support. Crawl spaces bear the weight of rooms above and are connected to the foundation, which is why damage in the crawl space can have a significant impact your home.
Many crawl spaces have inadequate support, are decaying due to mold and water issues, or are sinking because of soil settlement. When one or more of these issues happens in your home, you will notice sagging floors above the crawl space that could eventually break down if not repaired.
At Florida Foundation Authority, we specialize in crawl space repair of all types. If you’re experiencing a structural problem with your crawl space, we have a solution for you. Contact us online to learn more! We offer free estimates in Oviedo, Orlando, Deltona and surrounding areas.
Strong, straight & adjustable. IntelliJack® supports solve sagging floor problems in crawl spaces by stabilizing & leveling sagging beams.
When joists in the crawl space begin to sag because of age, mold, or pest damage, the floors above them will sag as well. This leads to uneven or “bouncy” floors in the living space, which are unpleasant for you and your family to deal with and damage your home’s value.
The IntelliJack® from Florida Foundation Authority is the solution to these problems. IntelliJack® crawl space support posts provide an effective, durable solution for leveling and stabilizing damaged crawl spaces. Unlike concrete blocks that will only sink further into the ground, the IntelliJack® provides a permanent solution.
This crawl space support system is made with strong, corrosion-resistant, galvanized steel. This ensures that it won’t develop rust or be damaged by pests. IntelliJack® posts are installed on sturdy base that prevents further settlement. Most importantly, they are easily adjustable should you ever need to change their height. IntelliJacks™ are completely compatible with our crawl space encapsulation system.
