Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Crawl Space Supports in Flushing, Queens
A homeowner in Flushing, Queens noticed some details in her home that were not quite right. The floor was sinking, the doors were sticking and she did not know why. She called Quality 1st Basement Systems for a foundation specialist to inspect her home. An inspector from Quality 1st Basement Systems found that she had sagging beams in her crawl space and basement, causing the floors above to be unlevel. He suggested support jacks to push the beams back into place.
In the crawl space Quality 1st Basement Systems installed SmartJack stabilizers. SmartJacks lift up sagging beams and uneven floor joists. They are made with heavy-duty steel and can support loads up to 60,000 pounds! In the basement, they installation team added Smart Jack XT's.

Both of the SmartJack systems move the beams back into place, making the floor above level and even. Quality 1st Basement Systems also installed a crawl space encapsulation system to keep out moisture and reduce home energy costs. Now this crawl space is dry and the home's floor is level!
