Settling Floor Jack Supports

What are floor jack supports?

Do the drywall walls of your house have any cracks? bouncy and sagging floors? improperly opening and closing doors? That indicates that your home has settling problems with its major beams and/or floor joists. Regardless of how old or how new your house is, this is a pretty typical problem.

The reasons for these issues are due to:

  • Too long of a span for the floor joists
  • Not enough CMU supports
  • Heavy interior walls causing too much weight on the floor system
  • Granite countertops or other heavy items
  • Poor design of crawl area floor system
  • Moisture in the crawl areas causes lumber to sag down
  • Deteriorated lumber in crawlspace

If you are having any of these problems, contact us to schedule your free inspection and to determine where exactly the settlement has occurred, why it has happened, and how to fix the problems.

Why does my home need floor jack supports?

The only way to effectively correct, lift, and stabilize the areas of settlement inside your home is by having these post jack supports installed in the specific areas if you want to lift back your floors, avoid dealing with the cracks inside your home, avoid dealing with your bouncy floors, and be able to close the doors again. Make sure your floor joists and main beam girders have no signs of any wood rot before having any floor supports installed.

At Tiger C Construction LLC, we avoid recommending services that are only temporary; instead, we offer solutions that are both cost-effective and long-lasting. In an attempt to “support” areas of settlement, we usually find wooden supports just sitting on top of the ground in crawl space waterproofing Chester VA. Though they might provide a certain level of assistance, these supports will eventually end up ineffective because the pressure will disappear over time. This is why it’s necessary to accurately stabilize the support in the specific areas using steel post jacks or cinder block piers with concrete footers, so you don’t have to worry about further settlement or redoing any supports that weren’t done correctly the first time.

You can rely on Tiger C Construction LLC if you ever need waterproofing Chester VA services or simply need a professional opinion on the best solution to maintain the quality of your home.

This company is great to work with. I had a water issue in one room in my basement. Every single person I dealt with, from the owner, the owner’s son, the guys who came to do some of the work and the sweet girl who answered the phone went above and beyond. If you have a waterproofing issue, this is the company to call.

We had a fantastic experience with the entire Tiger C team. They are so knowledgeable, responsive, quick and thorough. The work was precise and they cleaned up really thoroughly afterwards—our yard looks nicer now than when they started. Can’t recommend them enough for any foundation waterproofing needs.
