Tilting Basement Wall in West Sunbury, PA

A customer contacted our office looking for a professional opinion about a tilting foundation wall in a home they were looking to purchase. We provided a free inspection and recommendation to recommend them professionally.

Fixing Sagging and Unlevel Floors

The initial condition of the home's crawlspace, lacking proper encapsulation, led to an environment conducive to high humidity levels. As moisture accumulated, it permeated the surrounding wooden floor supports, initiating a process of deterioration. Over time, this moisture-induced damage resulted in the weakening of the wood, ultimately causing the floor to sag.

 

The presence of rot and termite infestation further exacerbated the situation, necessitating the replacement of the affected wooden components. Despite the remedial action taken, the issue of excessive span persisted, manifesting in continued instances of sagging and bounce within the floor structure.

 

To address these structural deficiencies comprehensively, Keystone Basement Systems devised a multifaceted solution. Central to this approach was the installation of supplemental support mechanisms designed to elevate the floor platform to an optimal profile. Additionally, measures were implemented to halve the distance over which the wooden joists spanned.

 

The implementation of supplemental steel support beams, positioned perpendicular to the joists at strategic intervals along their span, played a pivotal role in mitigating structural weaknesses. These beams were meticulously supported by SmartJacks, strategically placed atop concrete footings to ensure optimal load distribution and support.

 

By reducing the span of the wooden joists by half, the structural integrity and stability of the floor were significantly enhanced. This reduction in span effectively minimized the occurrence of sagging and bounce, promoting a more robust and durable floor structure overall.

 

Through meticulous planning, precise engineering, and expert installation techniques, Keystone Basement Systems successfully optimized the support system within the crawlspace. The result was a floor structure characterized by unparalleled stability, strength, and longevity, ensuring the continued safety and comfort of the dwelling's occupants.
