Norvell P. noticed settlement issues and sagging floors throughout his mother's home in Fort Mill, SC. He said, "The kitchen floor seems to have spots where I can feel it dipping down and sinking down." In order to protect their investment, Norvell researched online and found CanteyCanFixIt.com. Shortly after, System Design Specialist Jamie Beresford inspected the home, and he found rotten wood beams throughout the crawl space. Knowing the structure was weakened because of the wood rot, Specialist Jamie advised that Norvell replace the wood rot right away so that the house would be structurally sound. The Production Crew led by Foreman Matt Garcia replaced the outer rim joists and joist sisters with our treated lumber, and then pushed 3 Piers to stabilize the foundation from any future movement. Norvell and his mother can now relax knowing that the home is safe to live in for many years to come!
Alicia A. of Bowling Green, SC called Cantey Foundation Specialists because she noticed her floors sagging throughout her kitchen and dining room. After seeing a Cantey truck at the neighbor's house and asking about their experience, Alicia called for a free estimate. Specialist Scott Austin explained to Alicia that her floors were sagging because of wood rot underneath the home because of high moisture levels. By replacing the damaged beams with our treated lumber, installing three SmartJacks to stabilize the foundation and floor, and encapsulating the crawl space, Alicia would have the peace of mind that her home is structurally safe for many years to come.
Clifford S. has lived in his Clover, SC home for 20 years and has decided it is time to sell. After his wife passed last year, he decided it would be best for him to be closer to his children and grandchildren. Before moving, he knew that the concrete wall in his driveway needed to be fixed. It had started to lean and crack which he knew would be the first concern potential buyers would have as they pulled up in the driveway. Clifford received an advertisement in the mail that showcased local companies and one of them was Cantey Foundation Specialists. He decided to call in to see if Cantey could help him find a solution. System Design Specialist Alex Lovette arrived for the scheduled appointment and assessed the situation. Alex found that the best solution would be Cantey's Geo-Lock Anchor system. These wall anchors would be installed on the interior of the wall then a steel rod would be placed through the wall. This rod would anchor the wall using the most competent soil underneath the surface. This anchor system would stabilize the wall and stop the leaning. Production Team Leader Aubrey McJunkin, Production Team Member Francisco Lopez, and Production Team Member Oscar Mota came out and successfully installed the Geo-Lock Anchor system. Clifford is thankful to Cantey for helping him find a solution just in time for him to put his home on the market.
Karl W. of Rock Hill, SC was planning on selling his home; however, after looking in his crawl space, he knew he needed to fix the termite-ridden and rotten wood rim joists. After seeing Cantey's name in the local Money Mailer, Karl called for a free inspection and estimate. System Design Specialist Jamie Beresford examined the crawl space, and he had a simple solution: replace all the rotten wood with our treated lumber. Production Crew Foreman Dallas Darity and his crew were able to do this in a timely manner and at a reasonable price! Now, Karl can have the peace of mind to begin the process of selling his home.
Using Cantey Foundation Specialists before, Tom B. called us again because he wanted to stabilize one side of his house. An addition to the home later on, the garage and extra room were not fully stabilized. Although this section of the house only sunk about a quarter inch into the ground, Tom B. wanted to stop further settling. Four push piers were installed raising the house up the quarter inch, and PolyLEVEL was pumped horizontally beneath the floor to fill any voids. Tom's house is now fully stabilized, and he does not have to worry about his home settling in the future!
