Pier & Beam House Leveling in Conroe How can we help?

Pier & Beam Foundation Leveling in Conroe

Homes built with pier and beam foundations are often elevated with a small crawlspace underneath the house. This is in contrast to concrete slab foundations, where concrete is poured directly onto the earth. While the use of pier and beam foundations declined after 1960 nationally, it is still a popular option for those in flood zones, regions with extreme weather, hillside or uneven grading, or areas where the soil has extensive clay content. 

Keeping your pier and beam foundation secure and even is paramount for preserving the integrity of your house. Without adequate support like level main beams and strong floor joists that keep everything stable, you could face major internal issues, such as bowing beams, uneven floors, or cracks in the structure. To stay on top of any potential damage to your home, it is important to receive inspections, repairs, and leveling from an experienced and qualified specialist. Enter Level Check Foundation Repair.

Components of Pier & Beam Foundation

A Time-Tested Leveling Process

Under the house, a wood frame rests atop floor joists. These floor joists are supported by wooden, concrete, or occasionally, steel beams; and these structures are braced by concrete bases, with multiple concrete blocks stacked on top of each other. Piers add another layer of support for the beams and are typically made from concrete or steel and can be either round or square in shape. 

The complex construction of pier and beam foundations means that repairs require highly specialized knowledge. At Level Check Foundation Repair, we have developed a highly detailed and accurate leveling process to stabilize your space quickly, safely, and affordably.

Our leveling process includes:

  • To ensure a precise and thorough repair, we begin with a detailed inspection of your foundation where we determine your unique needs. 
    • Our team will diagram the entire home, take multiple elevation readings, and assess the condition of the interior and exterior damage, framing, and crawl space (when accessible). 
    • We also evaluate any rotten, bowed, or damaged beams as well as existing bases and blocks to check for leaning, breaks, or total failures. 
  • Our foreman and crew will then adjust existing pads (or blocks) and shim them tightly into place to achieve maximum support.
  • We will also install new pads (or blocks) as needed for added support.
  • Your existing beams are then either reinforced or, more often, completely replaced.
  • Once the necessary components have been replaced and successfully reinforced, we adjust the foundation to the desired level. 
  • After taking multiple readings to ensure your home’s foundation is even, we perform a thorough cleanup of the site, so you can get back to normal as soon as possible. 

We understand that the safety and longevity of your home rides on the evenness of your foundation, so our team takes our jobs seriously, and we go above and beyond to deliver a comprehensive and high-quality experience from start to finish.  

Leveling a House with Pier & Beam Foundation

If your house has a pier and beam foundation, it may be necessary to level it in order to correct any issues with stability or unevenness. To do so, metal, concrete, or wood pilings are installed to provide support. Once the pilings are in place, we can add or remove shims found on top of the interior pads or columns to adjust the interior of the house. If movement is caused by wood that was improperly installed or otherwise damaged, Level Check Foundation Repair will correct the issue. 

How Long Does Pier & Beam Foundation Repair Take?

Pier and beam foundation leveling can typically be completed in 1 -3 days. Once the repair is completed, the house will be leveled and stable. It is important to note that some repairs may require more time depending on the extent of the damage.
