The SmartJack Crawl Space Support System

The SmartJack is an adjustable crawl space support post made with galvanized steel, and the ONLY solution that addresses problem soils.

When a crawl space has been exposed to moisture, it begins to rot, get moldy and become weak. The weakened girders and floor joists are unable to continue supporting the weight above, and the floor above the crawl space becomes bouncy, soft and may begin to sag.

Weak soil can cause the existing columns in the crawl space to sink or settle, often creating a gap between the top of the column and the bottom of the girder it was supporting. Once the column settles, then the girder sags and the floors above sag. It is a chain reaction.

SmartJack Benefits:

  • Supports vertical loads 60,000 lbs+
  • Restores property value
  • Immediate stabilization & results
  • Minimal disturbance to home
  • Quick installation
  • Adjustable
  • Not vulnerable to Mold and Rot

How Does The SmartJack System Work?


Industrial strength galvanized steel columns are secured to the beams or joists in your crawl space.

A heavy-duty threaded rod allows for adjustment and a custom fit for each SmartJack installed.

With minimal disturbance to your home, SmartJacks can lift the above floors and walls back to their original level position.


SmartJack Crawl Space Installation Process


Step 1: Hole is excavated & footing base is prepared with engineered fill.


Step 2: The pre-cast footing is set in place and leveled.


Step 3: Galvanized steel pier is cut to the appropriate length.


Step 4: The steel column and components are assembled and connected to the beam and floor joists.


Step 5: The SmartJack® System is tightened into place, stabilizing the beams and potentially lifting the above floors and walls back to level.


Step 6: The SmartJack® System can also be installed in conjunction with a crawl space moisture barrier.
