Dorothy’s home in Colorado Springs previously had issues with sagging floors. A supporting column was put into her crawlspace that was supposed to correct the problem. However, an expert foundation repair specialist did not install this first product, resulting in problems with the proposed solution itself. This left her feeling uncomfortable and worrying that her home was not being properly supported and because of this, she sought help from Peak Structural to provide a permanent solution.
After contacting Peak and receiving a full inspection of her home, it was suggested that she replace her existing column with one of our SmartJacks. Dorothy saw all the benefits of the product and decided to move forward.
The issue with her current support column that can be seen in the picture, was that a lot of thread was showing. This means that there is no adjustability left to utilize to keep the floor above stable. Another issue with her previous column was that the Crawlspace had a large amount of humidity that lead to the rusting of her columns. With the SmartJack made from galvanized steel, our product will not rust. Compared to the less efficient big box store version, the SmartJack has a high capacity of over 60,000lbs! Once the SmartJack had replaced the existing product, Dorothy felt comfortable that her floors were stable and was confident in the decision she made.
In Limon, CO a homeowner named Sheila had noticed a slight slope in her floor. Having an old home and worried about the structure, she contacted Peak Structural to schedule a no cost estimate. Shortly after the appointment was made, an expert Design Specialist was sent out to assess the problem. After the inspection of the home, the specialist had found that the floors were sagging. This was happening because of the old, weakened wood column that was the only support to the floor above. It was suggested to the homeowner that the existing column be replaced with our SmartJack System to effectively and permanently support the floor above. The SmartJack can hold over 60,000lbs and is made of galvanized steel, so it will not rust or weaken over time. Happy with the option given to her and the assurance that this product would fully support her floor, Sheila decided to move forward with the installation and saw the results immediately.
