The owners of this beautiful, century-old home in Lambton County had problems in their home which originated from the crawl space.
After a thorough examination, our inspector determined the problems to be:
Simply stated, the structural problems in the crawl space were evident in all areas of this historic home. These issues made any upgrades or restoration attempts, such as replacing doors or even painting; futile, as the home’s structure needed to be addressed first and foremost to solve these problems.
Through our engineering process, we determined that a steel beam and two supplemental wood beams needed to be installed. A portion of an old and ineffective foundation wall was excavated and removed. Our team installed SmartJacks™ to better support the structure of the home.
We are so pleased that the homeowners now have a structurally sound home! No more bouncy, sloping floors and difficult to open window and doors.
