Pier and Beam Repair
Most of the issues that we find in pier and beam foundations are pretty much the logical things that you’d think happen to these types of structures. The pillars that are holding up the structure get weak over time and this can ultimately cause the whole structure to come tumbling down. Obviously, this is not something that typically happens over time. There are foundations like this that have maintained their sturdiness for centuries even in some buildings. For the most part though, we do consider that these types of foundations tend to require a bit more maintenance in general.
Free Inspections & Budgets
We don’t just want to talk here. Since we recognize that these types of foundations are going to require more maintenance we offer free inspections of the structure. We want to be very clear about this though. Our team is fully professional, and they’re going to be 100% honest about their findings. Whether you then decide to book a service with us or not. A lot of people don’t want to get their foundations checked out because they think that the company they hire will exaggerate what they find and push them towards a major potentially unnecessary repair. That’s not the case with us!
Pier and Beam Foundation Repair Methods
There are different ways that we can potentially fix these issues. For the most part what we see are worn down structures. Sometimes adding extra support could do the trick. If things are just way too bad, house leveling could be an option that you’ll have to consider. There are also simpler solutions to less severe problems. Particularly if it’s just the crawlspace that’s a mess. A good mold removal service and updating some of the wooden components in the structure could go a long way. We’ll find the problem and offer up the right solution.
Am I Covered For These Types of Repairs?
A lot of people have doubts about how they can use their home insurance for the services that we are able to provide. It depends on your coverage and the company that you're with. What we can say is that the good thing is most companies allow you to pick the contractor that you want to work with. So, don’t rely on them to pick someone for you. Even if you don’t end up picking us you have to do your due diligence to pick the right company.
Can You Help Me With Severe Pier & Beam Foundation Damages?
Yes, we’ve mentioned before that ideally we won’t get to that point. If that’s the case though you can be sure that we’re going to be able to make the necessary repairs. We’ll get our guys in there to do a primary inspection. From there we can walk you through step by step what we feel is required to restore the damaged area. The process is pretty much the same regardless of how much damage we end up finding on a property.
