Foundation Repair Photo Album: SmartJacks Installation, Manchester, NH
This homeowner in Manchester, New Hampshire has a 2-car garage that has lally columns running between each car bay. One day the homeowners noticed that the bottoms of the lally columns are corroding. They decided to call EFS for a free inspection.
Design Specialist Michael Bradley inspected the lally columns. Michael found that if the homeowner left the lally columns in like they are that they could fail in the future if they corrode more. Michael recommended replacing the lally columns with SmartJacks.
Crew Lead Chris Trembley and his team installed 2 SmartJacks into the garage where the old lally columns were.
