A home in Brimson, MN came to DBS with concerns for the flooring in their home and the overall safety, the family was concerned that their home was unstable and questioning if she should be worried about living in the home prior to being fixed. DBS sent a design specialist to the home to find out what part of the foundation was unstable, and find a solution to this homes challenge. We concluded that the home would need SmartJack® System to permanently stabilize the floors. Unstable floors and foundations can be caused by several things, one being that the floor joists need maintenance. They might need to be sagging, or it may be the ground that the joists are placed in. If the soil that the joists are in is shifted, it can cause shifts in the rest of the floor, similar to other household shifting problems like bowing walls in a shift of soil in the same area. These can happen to any house and from time to time, it’s inevitable, but DBS can use our services to create a stable, safe environment long into the future.
