Foundation Settlement Solutions

Adjustable Steel Support Post Piers (IntelliJack)

Adjustable Steel Support posts are an immediate permanent repair designed to support floor structures such as girders, beams, and floor joists. These supports are most commonly used in crawl spaces where high humidity and moisture have caused rot and deflection which results in bowing floors, misaligned doors, windows, and walls. Rebar reinforced concrete footings are installed to support these posts.

Carbon-Fiber Bonding Strips

Carbon Fiber Bonding Strips are a lucrative solution for bowed wall repairs. This system is one of the strongest on the market. It ties the basement or crawl space walls to the framing under the house. Because of this connection, it will never move again. This is because there is an even distribution of outside pressure. All Carbon Fiber Bonding Strips are installed along the interior of your crawl space or basement walls making this a very cost-effective and non-invasive procedure. The final finish is smooth, flat, and nearly invisible when painted.
