JES recommends the IntelliJack™ crawl space stabilizer for situations where you’re dealing with floor joist failure. There are many benefits of installing this system including having peace of mind that your floors will not cave in due to an unstable foundation. Here are a few other benefits of the IntelliJack™ system.
The JES IntelliJack™ crawl space stabilizer uses galvanized steel for its stable support structure. That means it won’t rust, so it’ll last for a very long time, regardless of the level of crawl space moisture you may be dealing with.
Having a high-quality, well-designed crawl space stabilizer is crucial. However, it is important that you manage any underlying concerns. Remember that galvanized steel’s ability to resist rust shouldn’t mean you install it in an area that’s plagued with high moisture concerns.
Another huge benefit for the JES IntelliJack™ crawl space stabilizer is the fact that it’s exceedingly high capacity. This stabilizer supports loads of up to 60,000 pounds, which is the equivalent of three elephants.
You don’t have to worry about placing too much weight on it.
This is an especially important benefit if you’re having floor joist failure because of poor design. When it comes to poor design, it’s most common for there to have been issues with the layout of weight distribution. The JES IntelliJack™ crawl space stabilizer can make up for any design issues that may have caused weight distribution concerns.
When a JES floor joist failure expert installs the IntelliJack™ system, you immediately get stabilization and lift. You don’t have to wait for anything to harden or completely finish. You can see the benefits associated with it as soon as it happens.
This is especially important if your floor joists are in an advanced state of disrepair. Ideally, you should contact a JES expert as soon as you realize you’re having floor joist failure concerns. However, this might not always be possible. No matter how quickly you need stabilization help, JES can help you with it as fast as possible.
Install in Conjunction with a Crawl Space Liner
Lastly, you can install the JES IntelliJack™ system along with a crawl space vapor barrier. That means you can have an encapsulated crawl space and still utilize the IntelliJack™ stabilizer without having to worry about the stability of the liner. This is especially important if you have a dirt crawl space, but you’re also having floor joist problems.
A high-quality crawl space vapor barrier is an essential part of having the best answer for crawl space moisture concerns. You should never have to choose between the crawl space vapor barrier and healthy floor joists. The JES IntelliJack™ system makes sure you don’t have to choose between these two.
