Mr. N had lived in his home for many years and had noticed that the floor seemed to be sinking more and more over time. He had no intention of going into his crawlspace so he decided to call a company that had no qualms about it.
Our Structural Consultant, Brett Cesarin, visited Mr. N and his home and discovered that the home had shifted in such a way that caused some of the wooden support posts to break away. Without proper support, the floor was free to sink. When Mr. N saw the photos that Brett took, he was floored (pun intended).
Mr. N decided to use us to install the solution to his uneven floor. The solution included 6 SmartJack Adjustable Steel Posts that were installed to replace the support posts that were no longer attached to the floor system. The SmartJack Adjustable Steel Post is the smart way to support a floor system as it is capable of adjusting to the shifting soils below.
Mr. K told us that he is a "Born Procrastinator." He knew that his crawlspace was in need of repair for a very long time but constantly kept putting it off. "I did really well in school despite putting off assignments until they were very close to being due; a deadline was the greatest motivation for me, and now that I wanted to sell my home quickly, what better deadline was there?" he told us with a smile on his face.
The problem with Mr. K's home was that his crawlspace was sinking, causing his floor to sink with it. The floor boards were an inch or more below the walls. The expansive soils beneath the home caused the wooden posts that were supporting the floor to lower. With the shiftiness of the Earth, wooden posts aren't well equipped to adapt because the size of the post never changes. Once it sinks and detaches from the floor the way Mr. K's wooden posts did, you could replace it with another wooden post that has the right height, but you would just be putting a bandage on the situation. Once the soil shifts again, you'd be in the same situation (a vicious circle).
Mr. K chose us to provide a smarter solution. In total, we installed 15 SmartJack Adjustable Steel Posts, which will adapt to the shifty soils with adjustments. 10 of those SmartJacks replaced existing wooden posts that were unsalvageable and the rest were installed near existing posts to support them. Now Mr. K can turn in his assignment before the deadline and get his home sold so he and his wife can continue their lives somewhere new.
You know your floor is in bad shape when there are certain areas that you avoid stepping on because of the noise it makes. Mr. A is a light sleeper. While he had to work early in the morning, before the sun rises, his children were night owls. Mr. A told us about how he bought his children touch screen monitors because the sound of them typing on their keyboards at night was enough to make him an insomniac. He called us out to inspect his home because there was a specific floorboard that made a loud creaking noise every time his children walked in the hallway to get a midnight snack. Now, I know you're telling yourself that Mr. A should have just bought his children a mini-fridge for their room so they wouldn't have to walk to the kitchen every night when they got the munchies. Mr. A thought about doing that himself, but he knew that the mini-fridge would just be a temporary solution for an issue that he knew should get addressed sooner than later.
We did a zip level reading of the floor and found that the specific area of concern was sagging close to an inch lower than the rest of the home. The wood posts in that area that were "supporting" it were not adequately attached to the footing nor to the girder, likely due to improper installation and also the shifting of the soils beneath the footing. Our solution was to install our SmartJack Adjustable Steel Posts near the struggling posts to lift, level, and stabilize the floor. Now Mr. A can sleep better, and his kids can sneak some sour patch kids more subtle.
The right side of the home was experiencing settlement. With a chimney attached to it, allowing the foundation to settle any further was risking the chimney falling in the future. To fix the problem, our crew installed our Push Pier system beneath the foundation of the home and the chimney. We were able to lift and stabilize the home from further settlement.
This project was a long-time coming. The homeowner is himself a realtor. He's contracted us to do several projects on homes that he has either helped buy or sell for years. We actually came to his own place of residence in Pleasanton about 6 years ago to inspect some areas of concern he had told us about. Cracks on the walls and the exterior slab were indicative of foundation settlement, but the homeowner wanted to hold off on doing any repairs as long as he could. Well...the time came when he could longer put off the repairs. 6 years allowed the foundation settlement to only get worse.

Mr. F recently purchased a house in Pleasanton, CA. He already planned on bringing the house down to its studs to fix the many other issues with the home and wanted to fix the settlement issue at the same time. After all the work, Mr. F's goal was to have a home that was fixed correctly from the start. He recounted how other homes in their area attempted to cover the effects of foundation settlement by simply patching and painting the house, equating the scenario to “putting lipstick on a pig.” However, he was looking for a permanent solution. To help solve Mr. F’s uneven flooring problem, our Structural Consultant came out to inspect the issue and suggested our piering system as a solution. Mr. F was highly involved throughout the entire job process, on site for the actual lifting and working closely with our foremen to ensure the flooring was level. Mr. F was very pleased with the work and our customer service. Foundation Repair of CA is happy to have found another Northern California homeowner a permanent solution to their foundation repair needs.
