Your home sends clear warning signs when its foundation is failing. Cracked or buckling walls, uneven floors, and stuck windows and doors are telling you that your foundation has been damaged. Foundation problems affect the safety, appearance, and value of your home and, if not addressed properly, lead to bigger - and more expensive - repairs down the road.
We take pride in providing long-term, permanent solutions for your home. Take a look at some of our completed foundation repair projects below. Check back often, we like to show off our hard work!
Foundation Repair Photo Album: Smart Jack Installation Portland, Oregon
This home had a new foundation poured, but the interior post work wasn't properly installed and began to sag. The home owner wanted the load beam raised to help close up the cracks that it had caused inside the home on the dry wall. By installing Smart Jack under the load beam, we were able to structurally re-support the house giving it the proper stabilized foundation the home owners wanted in the first place.
It doesn't take an expert to see the obvious slanting of this hallway. It does however take an expert to fix it. Do you want your house to look like a carnival ride? Didn't think so.
This picture and the next are the cause of interior soil settlement and floor sagging. Essentially, as the load beams sag away from the floors, the floor moves with it, pulling down on the walls. These cracks are the result.

Smart Jack #1
A series of Smart Jacks were installed under the hallway along the main load beams. By re-supporting the load beams and, in fact, raising them back up to level, we have halted any further sagging of the floors or worsening dry wall cracks.
Smart Jack #2
Here is the second of a seven Smart Jack system along the main load beam. Notice the screw-like characteristics. These units are adjustable to increase or decrease the amount of upward force they exert.
