Watch for indicators such as sagging or uneven floors, visible cracks in the interior walls, or doors and windows that no longer close properly. If you observe gaps between the walls and the ceiling or notice the development of new cracks in the exterior bricks or foundation, these are additional red flags.

Are crawl space support posts a DIY installation, or should I hire a professional?

While there may be DIY options for some home projects, installing crawl space support posts is a task best left to professionals. The complexity of foundation stabilization requires specialized knowledge and expertise to properly assess structural issues and implement stabilization solutions.

Attempting a DIY approach may lead to inadequate stabilization, exacerbating the issue and potentially causing further costly damage. By entrusting the installation to qualified experts, you not only ensure the effectiveness of the stabilization process but also benefit from their experience in addressing diverse structural challenges, providing a reliable and long-lasting solution for your crawlspace.

How many crawl space support posts do I need to lift my house?

Professional evaluation considers factors such as soil conditions, foundation type, and the extent of elevation required. Attempting to estimate the appropriate crawl space jack size without expert guidance can lead to safety risks and potential structural damage.

The lack of support posts can contribute to further structural instability, potentially damaging your home’s foundation and overall structure. 

 

Additionally, ignoring these issues may increase repair costs and decrease property value.
