DryZone Basement Systems Case Studies: Sagging Living Room Floor in Hatfield, MA
When this homeowner in Hatfield, MA saw her living room floor sloping downwards, she knew this was alarming. Calling a company like us that does foundation support work was a smart decision because structural damage is a real possibility if it's left untouched. Over time, wooden material that supports the foundation can break down as the years go by due to water damage or mold growth, so it's smart to keep an eye out for these things before the situation gets worse!
It was time for the call center to schedule an appointment for the inspector to assess the situation more carefully.
Upon inspection in the crawlspace under the living room, it was found that the wooden supports had weakened over time from moisture. The wooden columns looked like they couldn't hold up the weight any longer, causing the floor to sag downwards. This is when our SmartJack floor support system was suggested, and the homeowner agreed to the installation.
To begin, a production team cleared the installation area under the wooden support beam, then they installed a stable footing for the SmartJack to fit right in. Then, the floor support system was adjusted, raising the floor back to its original level!
The homeowner was very satisfied that her living room is back to normal. She now has an adjustable support system for the entirety of the house's life!
