Push Piers Stabilizing Home
Three piers were pushed in this corner of the home to raise and stabilize the home back into place.
Inside Crawl Space Push Piers
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.
Mold on Wood Beams
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.
Six SmartJacks and New Supporting Beams
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.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
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.
Finished CleanSpace and SmartJack System
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.
