Sagging Cottage in Ocean Park, ME Supported with SmartJack Installation
Once this Ocean Park, ME property owner noticed their cottage had begun to slightly sag due to poor support, they got online right away to find a solution. There, they found our TC Hafford Basement Systems website and called us to see if we could solve their problem. We dispatched our sales representative as soon as possible to give the property owner a free estimate on the repairs. After hearing the report, they hired us to get started once our crew was available.
As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home, they were able to get started on providing this property with proper supports capable of maintaining the cottages position for the future. To achieve this, first engineered fill is used to create a firm placement for each of the concrete bases that will hold the new supports. Finally, the SmartJack supports were put in place between each of the bases and the joists above the crawlspace. These supports were then adjusted to the proper height before the old, failing supports were completely removed from below the cottage.
With their new SmartJack supports, this property owner can rest assured none of the disasters they feared will befell their cottage. The SmartJack piers will hold this cottage in place for years to come!
