High-grade galvanized steel support posts, built to be adjusted to any height necessary, are installed underneath the floor joists and raised to their correct position to stabilize and protect your home for years down the road.

The existing pier blocks are often in good shape and don’t need to be replaced. In that case,  the posts or the deteriorated screw jacks are removed or replaced.

Crawl Space Sump Pump

Another common solution for your crawl space repair needs is installing a crawl space sump pump.The sump basin collects water to a certain level until your sump pump’s float switches are triggered. Once triggered, the sump pump system automatically pumps water out of your home through a discharge pipe.
