What is the IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jack?
IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jacks are state-of-the-art support systems designed to address structural issues such as drooping and springy floors.
These sturdy steel supports are strategically placed beneath floor joists and securely attached to the beams above, providing outstanding stability and strengthening weakened floor structures.

Our crawl space jacks are distinct from conventional supports because they are adjustable, allowing for precise realignment and lasting stability, which is crucial for the long-term structural health of your home.
Choosing this crawl space repair signifies a commitment to a comprehensive home maintenance plan, focusing on not just quick fixes but the overall strength and safety of your living space.
Signs You Need Crawl Space Jacks
It’s vital to spot the early signs of floor and joist wear to avoid escalating problems. Signs that you might need crawl space repair include:
- Sagging floors

These issues often suggest that your home’s structural integrity is compromised, requiring immediate action to prevent further damage and ensure the safety and comfort of your living space.
