Homeowners in Southen Alberta regularly experience sagging, sloping, or “bouncy” floors, often caused by insufficient structural support in the house’s crawl space. These aren’t just an inconvenient and unsightly architectural feature—left unaddressed, the underlying issue causing sagging floors compromises the overall structural integrity of your home.

Groundworks is ready to address crawl space foundation issues using industry-advanced solutions like our very own SettleStop™ IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jacks. Our supports are engineered to permanently reinforce floor joists in the home, distribute its weight evenly, and restore the structural integrity of your home.

Here’s an overview of our system, our installation process, and the potential issues for your home.

Understanding the IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jack System

SettleStop™ IntelliJack™ crawl space jacks are an industry-leading foundation support technology designed to address the causes of uneven, sagging floors.

This system uses strong steel supports placed under the floor beams, which are attached to support beams tailored to your house. The result is excellent stability and support for the crawl space, making your home last longer. 

The Groundworks method isn’t just a quick fix. We look at the space to understand why foundations are moving and floors are sagging, then come up with lasting solutions to make your home’s structure stronger.

Recognizing the Need for Crawl Space Support

You may have gotten used to the bounciness of the floors in certain rooms of the house or the gentle slope in another area. But these are warning signs that the house has more serious structural issues. If you notice this or one of the other common signs that your crawl space needs extra support, call us.

Your home may not have all of these signs of structural deficiency, but if you’re noticing just a handful, it’s time to call the professionals at Groundworks.
