A few years ago, a gentlemen bought a foreclosure for less than $20,000. The seller recognized the severe problems with the house and didn’t see any value in the property other than the land itself. It was assumed that the house would have to be demolished and removed before the land would be worth anything.
The new owner invited one of our inspectors to look at his newly acquired purchase before calling the demolition company. Kris of Lowcountry Basement Systems identified numerous challenges the house was facing.
Lowcountry Basement Systems installed (4) Push Piers at an average depth of (25) ft, (9) 10’ SmartJacks, (1) 8’ PowerBrace beam and approximately (154) lbs of PolyLevel.
The system came together beautifully! The foundation was raised and stabilized. The floor is now nearly level, and the home’s value has increased at least $100,000.
