Support Beam Replacement and Repair Options
If your home’s floors are sagging or bouncing, it means that the support beams underneath have become weak or damaged. The beams in your crawl space or basement may not be able to support the weight of your floors, and need repair fast!
Based on your home’s unique situation and how severe the support beam damage is, we determine the type of repair needed. We look at a few different factors:
- The relative humidity of your crawl space or basement
- Your goals for how you want to use the space after the repair
- The severity of the floor sag above your crawl space or basement
Floors above crawl spaces and basements are especially prone to issues related to moisture damage and weak soil under the foundation. If your floor joists or beams are sagging, it may be the result of improper column spacing and/or weakening of the floors due to mold or wood rot. As moisture accumulates in lower levels, it affects the stability and structure of floors above.
Because every home is different, it’s always a good idea to call your local Davenport foundation specialists for your free estimate to determine the best course of action for you. Our team can come out to your home and inspect your sagging floors, assessing both the interior and exterior of your home, in order to recommend the best repair solution.
Here at MidAmerica Basement Systems, we utilize the Supportworks SmartJack® system, which can lift and stabilize floor joists in your basement or crawl space. This uses heavy-duty steel columns, attached to your beams or joists, and an adjustable threaded rod system for a custom fit. The SmartJack system can be installed any time of the year, and typically takes less than a day to complete. Plus, it comes with a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty against defects, and our very own performance warranty from MidAmerica Basement Systems.
