Pier and Beam Repair
If you would like to get a better understanding of how we go about repairing your pier and beam foundation, you must be first able to grasp how this solution works and what it is. Essentially this type of foundation allows you to build your home atop beams. These in turn rest on pier walls which are designed to carry the majority of your home's weight. Whilst this design does offer a host of advantages, it also has a few problems which may need to be looked at from time to time.
A pier and beam design create a crawlspace below your home. This means that your home's foundation will be prone to the damage caused by Mother Nature. Be it rain, wind, or snow. The worst of these however is water and the moisture it creates. This will cause the soil beneath your foundation to shrink and swell, shifting your foundation. Fortunately, this seems to happen in isolated areas, and it is only in extremely rare cases that we find all the piers and beams have been compromised. No matter the amount of damage, you can rest assured in the knowledge that we have the right solution.
Keep Your Eyes Peeled
Now we will never encourage you to go crawling under your home to check for foundational damage. This is a dirty, moldy, and dangerous place which should only be explored by professionals. Instead, there are a few signs you can keep an eye out for. These include cracking on the interior of the walls and ceilings of your home. You may also notice sudden gaps appearing between your baseboards and walls. All of these are clear signs that you need to pick up the phone and call us immediately. Our experts will be waiting to give you the solution you deserve.
