Common Problems with PIER AND BEAM FOUNDATIONS and how we fix them.
Leveling and Repairing a Pier and Beam Foundation
The floor joists are brought up to the desired level with hydraulic jacks and then are supported with chemically and pressure treated, cedar wood beams for long-lasting strength and structural support. After the beams are placed in position, new concrete footings are poured and when they dry the new press piers are placed on the footings and then metal shims are inserted between the new beams and the new press piers to lock-in the adjusted height.
Rotted Floor Joists
Floor joists become compromised and begin to rot due to many factors. Causes can be termites, standing water or just high humidity and moisture levels. Age can also play a factor. Joists are necessary for a sturdy, level foundation and any repair cannot be done without replacing damaged joists.
A damaged floor joist can cause large dips, bowed and bouncy floors and much more. Joists should always be replaced by a professional carpenter or foundation expert when repairing a pier and beam foundation.
