Crawl Space Structural Support Jacks Installed in Western and Central MA

Notice the wood floor joist is showing signs of severe damage because of failing crawl space supports. As these supports give way, the floors often sag and interior walls can crack, resulting in more problems to fix.

Because it's bearing weight right under your home, your crawl space plays a vital role in the building's structural integrity.

How Crawl Space Supports Fail

(Click for more information.)

Failing crawl space structures can often be resolved just by installing crawl space supports.

Leader Basement Systems specializes in crawl space repairs of all types and we have the solutions for you.

Crawl Space Support Systems

The SmartJack® Crawl Space Stabilizer is an adjustable support system used for sagging crawl spaces.

It not only provides supplemental support for your failing structure -- it can also often lift up failing floor joists or beams, restoring their position.

The SmartJack® is available for installation throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut, including Chicopee, Springfield, Worcester and nearby areas.

Foundation Failure

Foundation walls themselves can fail in a large number of ways. Usually, these walls can be damaged by foundation settling due to poor supporting soils. It's also common for the walls to buckle because of expansive soils outside the home.

If you have a structural problem with your foundation, it's best to contact a foundation specialist as soon as possible.

Sinking Crawl Space Supports

Sometimes crawl space support pillars are built on soil that's not strong enough to support the weight of the home.

Over time, these supports start to sink. As they do, the floor they hold up will sink along with it, giving you uneven floors and often interior wall cracking.

Inadequate Structural Design

Sometimes, builders inadequately space out the support beams that hold up the floor and interior structure.

When this happens, the floor may sink in between each support, leading to further damage of the structure.

Rotting Floor Joists

When crawl spaces are damp, humid, or flooding, they turn into the perfect environment for mold and rot to thrive. Insects often feed on organic materials in the crawl space too.

As the structural wood deteriorates, it will no longer be able to support your home, leading to significant structural damage.
