Crawl Space Support Piers

If your foundation in North Charleston is built around a crawl space rather than a full-size basement, your home may begin to suffer from bouncy floors if the wooden crawl space beams begin to rot. While a crawl space is an inexpensive way to get your home off the ground, it can also suffer from structural damage. Crawl space support piers help your foundation get back into good standing. CNT Foundations provides exceptional foundation repair services for homes with crawl spaces. Call 843-405-7022 for your free, no-obligation estimate.

How can support piers help my crawl space?

Many crawl spaces are built with wooden girders and support beams. These beams provide support for the first-floor joists of your home, but they also need support piers, or columns, to keep them from sagging under the weight of your home. The trouble comes when all that wood begins to fail and cannot keep the rest of the foundation strong. As the wood shrinks, rots, or suffers water damage, it will cause your home’s floors to become bouncy and uneven.

We recommend installing steel supports under your crawl space foundation instead of the wooden supports. Steel supports are protected against the damage suffered by wood, and they can be adjustable to fit snugly even if the wood shrinks.

CNT Foundations is available in North Charleston to assist you in making important decisions regarding your foundation repairs. Your foundation should be the strongest area of your home, and CNT Foundations is here to make sure it stays that way. Call 843-405-7022 today to speak with our staff and make a free appointment.
