BQ Basement Systems Case Studies: BQ Fixes Bowing Floors in Dresher, PA

Friday, July 8th, 2016 by Thomas Weinert

Challenge

This Dresher home was constructed on very sandy soil.The home owners were experiencing issues with the floor and storage in crawl space.  The interior pillars had settled causing a slight bow in the floor. New furniture and floors above made the slight sag in the floor more noticeable. The crawl space was also suffering from a moisture problem and the main beam was beginning to sag from a high moisture content.

Solution

BQ Basement Systems installed 11 SmartJacks with supplemental triple 2"x10"s beams to help carry the load. BQ Basement Systems installed the CleanSpace vapor barrier and the SaniDry dehumidifier.

The floor was raised and the sag was no longer noticeable while walking thru the main floor of the residence.
