Cantey Foundation Specialists Case Studies: House in Lugoff, SC Restored with SmartJacks & CleanSpace

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015 by Portia Mellott


The Still House in Lugoff was challenging for the Cantey production crew because of its size and amount of work needing to be done.  When Cantey first arrived at the 150 year old home, the floors had fallen in under the weight of forgotten debris.  The main frame and beams were made primarily of old tree trunks, which had rotted over the years from wet conditions.  Two rooms and an entryway had to be cleared, torn apart, and rebuilt from the bottom up to create a stable area.


After an evaluation with sales representative James Davis and hours of conversing with primary foreman Matt Garcia to construct a vigorous game plan, Cantey Foundation Specialists begun work on September 14th, 2015.  The game plan solution was to remove and replace over 150 feet of rim joist, installing 12 SmartJacks, extract any rotted tree trunk beams, and restore all beams and support beams.  After these steps were completed, Cantey then installed a vapor barrier in the crawlspace to prevent future moisture exposure.  The Still House took Cantey a little over a week to complete with this huge project, but the production crew and Cantey team definitely rose to this challenge brilliantly!
