We have lifted houses high enough so the first floor became the second floor and while a new foundation and first floor were constructed.

*A kip is an Imperial unit of force. It equals 1000 pounds-force, used primarily by American architects and engineers to measure engineering loads.
We own some of the largest steel beams in the area, up to 75’ long at 150 pounds per foot. We use our bolt up pocketed beams for unlimited length at over 200 pounds per foot.
We have a massive inventory of tilt-up wall bracing to shore and support walls of all sizes, the image above is an excellent visual example.
These scaffold type shoring systems consist of high strength shoring bucks that setup with simple components such as screw jacks, base plates, u-heads and cross braces.
Locking ring hydraulic jacks rated from 30 to 55 tons.
We use the highest quality hydraulic jacks and accessories available to facilitate a safe and efficient process.
A screw jack is used to apply a force, push and pull, or move to a position and hold by mechanically converting rotary motion into linear motion.
Jepsen Inc. uses state of the art hydraulic jacking systems which are used mainly to jack, hoist, lift or move any type of structure.
Shoring and Jacking equipment is inherently heavy and slow to deploy unless, like us, you have the trucks, tractors, heavy equipment and skilled team to efficiently mobilize it.
