The homeowner of this property wished to replace a failing lally column in their garage. The existing column was corroding and effecting the integrity of the structural beam up above. Erickson Foundation Supportworks replaced it with a SmartJack. In this view, the concrete around the base is still curing, and the surface will still be smoothed out.
The bump addition on this home in New Boston was settling over time. It was supported by 3 concrete pillars, all of which had failed and were sinking. Our team proposed and installed 3 EZ Post helical piles to replace the concrete pillars. The EZ posts are permanent and will not settle.
This early 20th century home in Concord, NH was originally built on large, loose field stone. Over the years, cinder blocks were added, beams were repaired, and temporary columns were placed throughout the basement space to assist in stabilizing the sinking floors.
Overtime, the floors and beams of the home settled and needed a more permanent solution to fix the problem. We installed 9 SmartJacks and some steel I-beams to strengthen the sagging floor and lift it back up a bit. This is a much more permanent solution with a 10 year warranty.
This older brick column was failing, causing the beam and floor above to sag more and more over the years. It was also a large, bulky obstacle at the bottom of the basement steps. The brick columb was replaced with a stable SmartJack, cleaner looking and offering long lasting support.
A potential homeowner looking in Kingston, New Hampshire found a house that they wanted to purchase but needed someone to replace the columns in the basement.
Dave Cormier was able to inspect the basement supports and suggested having Smart Jacks installed in the basement for support rather than a cut log and an old jack that wasn't supporting the structure anymore. Jon Provost, the crew lead, had his team remove the old support and replace them with Smart Jacks.
This potential homeowner was happy to know that the structure was now secured and that they wouldn't have more structural issues in the future.
