Case Studies: Sagging Floor Receives Boost from SmartJacks® and Joist Assists

Monday, January 16th, 2017 by Michael Connolly


In 2012, Mr. Thompson built a home in Yemassee, SC. Two years later it started to settle. The warm, humid summer air weakened the subfloor. Mr. Thompson's wooden floors began to sag and bounce without the proper support.

Mr. Thompson wanted to fix the problem to prevent it from getting worse. For six months, he had tried to find the best company to fix his flooring issue. On Sept. 6, 2016, Mr. Thompson met Kris Evan, an inspector at Lowcountry Basement Systems.


Kris recommended 10 Joist Assist Brackets to cover and protect the weakened areas of the joists that he found. He also suggested two PowerBeams™ to provide vertical support to multiple joists. To push the PowerBeams™ up, Kris used four SmartJacks®, each capable of supporting, 60,000 lbs. 

Project Summary

Joist Assist Brackets: 10

SmartJacks: 4

PowerBeams: 2
