Three piers were pushed in this corner of the home to raise and stabilize the home back into place.
Occasionally, push piers must be installed in the crawl space rather than outside of the home because of obstructions that can be in the way.
With high moisture levels in the air, mold began to grow on the wood beams throughout the crawl space. This slowly breaks down the wood, and overtime will create costly issues both with health and safety.
With the new supporting beams replacing the old moldy ones, SmartJacks were then installed to help support the remaining brick piers and replace the older and toppled over brick piers.
Drainage ditches are dug and then covered with the thick CleanSpace material. If heavy rains happen, the water will drain successfully under and away from the house.
The crawl space now has low moisture levels, and it is bright and clean! The space is now easily accessible and completely stabilized!
One reason Anna's floors were sloping was because her brick piers supporting the structure had toppled over time and settlement into the soil.
After finally receiving an offer on her home, customer Anna E. called Cantey Foundation Specialists to fix some of her foundation issues that were found during the inspection report. During the free estimate, System Design Specialist James Davis recommended that Anna should fix not only her foundation issues, but also the moisture issues in her crawl space.
Production Crew led by Foreman Sixto Lopez installed six piers to lift and stabilize the house, which closed the exterior cracks in her home's brickwork. Next, the Production Crew installed six jacks along with supplemental beam to lift and stabilize the sagging floors. Lastly, they encapsulated the entire crawl space to bring down moisture levels in the air, thus eliminating future problems of mold and drainage issues. Now, Anna's home will surpass inspection reports about her foundation and crawl space, and she will receive more after her investment into the home's future!
