Dirt Crawlspace with Foundation Cracks
This is a view of the crawlspace when we first came out. You can see the block foundation has numerous gaps and even a few blocks have greatly shifted out of place.
Here we have 2 Smart Jacks in play with a Supplemental Beam and 3 Helical Piers
Waterproofing the Crawlspace
Not shown in this picture is our Drainage Matting that is installed prior to the CleanSpace. Drainage matting creates drainage space under the CleanSpace that allows water to flow over to their SmartSump. With our Drainage Matting and the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier installed, this crawlspace will stay clean and dry durning wet seasons.
Smart Jacks are steel piers that are designed to help stop settling floors and can even be adjusted to help raise your floor back to where it originally was.
Helical Piers are typically used when your foundation is in need of stabilization. Helical Piers are screwed into soil until they reach competent soil or bedrock. In many cases helical piers can lift a sunken foundation back to its original position.
