BEAM AND POST PROBLEMS

beam and post problems and solutions in denver, coAlthough it is not the most visible part of the home, the basement is often the source of the most trouble for homeowners. This can largely be attributed to instability afflicting the beams and posts that support the basement, which affects the entire floor above them. If the beams or posts in your basement have a tendency to lean or bend, you are likely experiencing a foundation problem. Leaning posts are a serious issue that can indicate a wholly unstable foundation. If you notice this problem in your home, do not hesitate to contact the foundation repair experts at Rapid Foundation Repair immediately.

Bent or leaning beams and posts in the basement can be the instigator for an array of serious problems throughout the home including:

  • Sagging or uneven floor: When supporting beams begin to lean, they will take the floor with them, causing it to sag and become sloped or uneven.
  • Cracks: Cracks in the floor and walls are a result of the floor pulling away from the walls caused by leaning beams.
  • Wet basement: Cracks caused by leaning support beams create openings for moisture to enter the home, often resulting in basement water problems.
  • Pest infestation: In addition to allowing in moisture, cracks also provide an entry point for insects and other pests.

These are just a few examples of problems resulting from leaning beams and posts. Leaning support beams pose a serious hazard as they greatly compromise the structural integrity of your foundation. Investing in the foundation repair services of Rapid Foundation Repair is critical as beam and post problems must be addressed at the source to fully eradicate the problem and properly secure your home's foundation.

Solutions for Leaning Posts in Your Colorado Home

Steel piers are often the best solution to shifting or settling foundations. These piers are secured by driving them into the ground beneath the foundation until they become settled in the stable soils far below the top layers of shifting soil. Once secured, the weight of the structure is transferred onto the piers and they are then used to support the foundation and provide stability. Lastly, the piers help lift the foundation back to its intended level, thereby relieving any pressure causing the beams or posts to bend or curve. The entire installation process is minimally invasive and can be conducted in almost any type or season of weather. Our steel piers are manufactured by ECP (Earth Contact Products), the leading supplier in the foundation repair industry, and are built to last so you can rest easy knowing that your foundation will be stabilized for years to come.
