An experienced Acculevel project manager will arrive at the property and perform a full inspection of any of the reported symptoms. Measurements, drawings and other details such as photographs may be taken. A contract outlining the proposed work will be provided.
A steel I-Beam is cut and prepared to the correct size and installed where the old joist was. Using temporary braces, the steel I-Beam is fixed into place. Cuts may need to be made on-site to ensure a perfect fit.
If there is not a sufficient footer for the jack to be placed on, the crew may use concrete block to create one. Once the footer for the jack is ready, the jack is assembled and tightened against the base of the steel I-Beam.
In some instances, the floor may be raised back into it's original position by tightening the jack. More commonly, just enough pressure is applied on the jack to prevent further sagging.
If you think you may need I-Beam & Jacks, it is possible you are experiencing some or all of the following symptoms. If you are not, these symptoms may appear over time if left untreated. It is not uncommon that a homeowner is requiring several services at once and may have symptoms that are inconsistent with the following graphic.
