Pier & Beam Leveling Over the past few years we’ve been in the repair industry, we have also helped the people of Texas with pier and beam foundation repairs. The pier and beam foundation repair is similar to that in the slab foundation. The only difference is that the foundation in this scenario is a bit raised from the ground. The pier and beam foundation comprises even wooden structures as opposed to the concrete foundations. Another significant difference between a slab foundation and the pier and beam is that the latter is more of a maintenance type of foundation. When we say this, we don’t mean that slab foundations don’t ask for any maintenance. What we intend to imply is that they don’t require regular check-ups. At Foundation Repair Mesquite TX, we always advise our clients to check their pier and beam foundations at least once a year. As the experts, we view piers and beam foundation as a pressure point. Every point can only hold a specific amount of weight. So, what happens when the dock settles and can’t sustain all the weight? Typically, the extra weight is diverted to another pier and thus overloading it. If left unattended, the additional load can create a snowball effect leading to significant complications. The excess weight can lead to problems such as;
Cracks on the walls
Doors/windows failing to open or close
The entire structure may get out of level
The wooden beams and floor joist
This specific foundation comprises a footing, also known as the pier, and the pole, which is usually wooden in structure. There is also the wood floor joist.
