||The Key Elements Are; Footings, Piers, Beams, Sills, Joist
A raised floor system is an assembly of footings, piers, stem walls, beams,
sills, girders, joists, and sheathing panels, all properly sized and connected
together. A raised floor system is designed to elevate the living space off the
ground, isolating it from moisture and pests. American homes have been
built on raised floor systems since Colonial times, and the aesthetic and
practical reasons for building a raised home still apply today.
Many terms are frequently used to describe raised floor systems in
different regions of the country. Examples include Raise Wood Floor,
Raised Floor Foundation, Pier and Beam Foundation, and Crawl Space
Foundation. A raised floor can also be supported by a variety of
foundation types. Examples of the most common foundation types
include spot pier and beam foundations, and continuous foundation
walls (curtain walls).
Knowing Your Foundation Type Is Vital To Finding The Right Foundation Repair Company Concrete Slab Foundations
A slab foundation is a foundation built directly on the soil with no basement or crawl space. Slabs does not provide storage or utility space,
as the home actually sits directly on a large platform of solid concrete that is typically 4 to 8 inches thick. Embedded within the slab is a
grid of supporting ribbed metal rods known as "rebar". Slabs are the quickest and cheapest of foundation types to build because they
require less labor, skill and materials to build. Contact a "Concrete Foundation Repair Company" for Slab Repairs.
Slabs have the disadvantage of being difficult and expensive to repair when they settle or crack. Most
companies that specialize in concrete slab repairs are in business to sell steel piers or steel pilings. The
more they sell and the more they can charge you per pier/piling, the bigger the salesman’s
commission and the more the company makes. They don’t need a seasoned crew experienced in
several methods of foundation repairs if all their repairs are basically performed the same way. They
just need a foreman and a bunch of day laborers. This means you have a real possibility, without you
realizing it, of getting multiple bids from the same company. They install expensive steel pilings
(averaging $1,000 per), but they do not replace damaged wooden crawl space components. You can
get the same results with a footing and concrete pier (in most cases) for about half the price.
Crawl Space (Pier and Beam) Foundations
A pier and beam foundation consists of either brick or concrete pier columns that support beams and floor joists above the ground. The
areas between the soil and the bottom of the house floor is known as the crawl space. These foundations are built either at ground level
or over a shallow excavation that varies in depth, but is commonly about 36 to 40 inches deep.
