Pier and beam foundations have become less common in the construction of new houses and buildings, however, many historical or older homes still sit atop a structural network of concrete blocks and wooden beams. While pier and beam foundations can have a number of advantages over concrete slab foundations, they often also have a number of unique problems not found with the latter. Mold and mildew, wood rot, or termites, for example, can wreak havoc on a pier and beam foundation. Homeowners may notice sagging or creaky floors and other issues when a foundation problem begins to manifest. The condition of a pier and beam foundation can be assessed by accessing the crawlspace. A foundation expert from Shreveport Foundation Repair will be happy to assist you in determining and fixing any foundation problems.

Preventative Steps

The best way to save money on foundation repairs is to take preventative steps to protect your foundation and your home. There are many ways to approach this. First, it is important to make sure you have proper drainage around the base of your home to prevent water from collecting underneath your home. This helps to mitigate mold and mildew or rotting. Taking proactive measures to reinforce your foundation or replace weakened sections of your pier and beam foundation can also help you avoid structural damage to your home before they happen. Our foundation repair specialists can provide you with preventative maintenance for pier and beam foundations to make sure you won’t find yourself with unexpected sudden and expensive foundation repair expenses.

Pier and Beam Foundation Problems

Like concrete slab foundations, pier and beam foundations can also be affected by soil erosion or compression. These issues can result in your home or building sinking or settling and changing from its original position. These changes place a great deal of stress on the structure of your building and can result in immensely costly repair bills.
