Maybe you guys can help.
I have a pier and beam foundation that is too close to the ground. Occasionally it needs leveling. So far I have been able to dig between piers, use a hydraulic jack placed over a long 2x8, jack everything up, throw in some shims and call it a day.
Got myself into an area where there is precious room under the house, with soft ground. To make matters worse, the beam is nearly gone and was patched with some 2x8's bolted to the sides of the decent part of the beam. Of course these bolts are pivot points and the entire section has sunk. I am trying to avoid digging in the wet. soft area between the shaky piers. I know they make a Z shaped hunk O'metal where one end goes under and grabs the bottom of the beam, the side rises next to the beam, and the top rests atop the jack which is placed next to (as opposed to under) the beam. This allows you to jack up a beam with the jack net to the beam.
Anyone know what they are called? Let alone where to buy one or two ?
