Settling Floor Jack Supports

What are floor jack supports?

Are you experiencing cracks inside your home in the drywall? Sagging and bouncing floors? Doors that don’t open and close properly? Then that means that your home is experiencing settling issues in your floor joists and/or main beams. This is a very common issue whether your home is older or even newer. 

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 space floor system 
  • Moisture in the crawl space causing lumber to sag down
  • Deteriorated lumber in crawl space

If you are experiencing any of these issues, contact us to schedule your free inspection to let you know exactly where the settlement has occurred, why it has occurred, and how to fix the settlement issues.

Why does my home need floor jack supports?

 If you want to lift back your floors, not deal with the cracks within the inside of your home, not deal with your bouncy floors, and be able to close your doors again, the only way to properly correct, lift, and stabilize the areas of settlement inside your home is to have these post jack supports installed in the specific areas needed. Although, before you have any floor supports installed, be sure you do not have any wood rot in your floor joists or main beam girders. 

We at Tiger C do not recommend you any services that are only temporary, we provide solutions that will last a very long time and that are worth the investment. In crawl spaces we often find wooden supports just sitting on top of the dirt in an attempt to “support” areas of settlement. Though they may be helping a little, these supports will eventually be useless because they will lose the pressure over time. That is why steel post jacks or cinder block piers with a concrete footer need to be placed to properly support the specific areas needed so you do not have to worry about further settlement or redoing any supports that were not done right the first time.

Customers Say?
Happy to have chosen Tiger C. Construction to install my basement water management system. My basement doesn’t even smell like a basement anymore! Clear explanations were given to all questions in a timely manner before, during and after installation. A timeline was given and adhered to. No surprises. Installation was professional and clean-up was carefully attended to. Outstanding customer service – always prompt, polite, and professional. An investment well worth it.

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.
