A few years ago, Kathy F. of Charleston, SC had sagging floors so she called around for someone to install crawl space jacks. Unfortunately, the crawl space jacks that were installed did not fix the problem, so Kathy had to research into more foundation work. Stumbling upon CanteyCanFixIt.com, she decided to make an appointment for her free estimate. System Design Specialist Kendall Moore inspected not only her crawl space, but also the interior and exterior of her home. Specialist Kendall explained to Kathy that the crawl space jacks were failing because it did not fix two of her main problems: the moisture and soil issue. Because the past installed encapsulation was not done correctly, the wood beams throughout the crawl space began to rot and develop mold. This weakened the joists, thus not supporting the floors completely. Secondly, the jacks were placed on top of cinder blocks, which are extremely heavy and sink into the soil. This settlement causes major issues including sagging floors, sticking windows and doors, and cracks in sheet rock.
