Floor Framing

Floor Framing Support for Atlanta, Georgia and Other Southeastern Homes

floor-framingIf weak soil is not a factor in your need for home foundation repair, we may decide to implement floor framing to strengthen the existing foundation. Floor framing support involves adding new beams and posts throughout your home interior to support the existing floor framing, which may need further boosting because of age, moisture issues, poor design, or faulty construction. New floor framing will supplement older floor framing that is too weak or spaced too far apart to provide proper foundation support.

In addition, floor leveling services from ESOG will help to ensure that your property is level. We can help by restoring your floors after they have been damaged due to wear and tear or other reasons. We also have the long-lasting solution for a structurally weak foundation, which can be repaired with house leveling.

Lateral Foundation Failure in Atlanta

In particular, a horizontal fractured basement wall can be especially damaging to your home foundation as well as your home value. These concrete cracks may be caused by soil pressure as it pushes against the back of the wall, forcing the wall to bow in. There are several wall support methods we can use to stabilize your basement walls and rectify your home foundation problems:

  • Carbon fiber strap lamination stops the bending action of the wall and will leave your walls free of clutter or unsightly equipment. You can paint right over them and no one will be the wiser. Stronger than steel, cost-effective, and non-corrosive, these can be bonded directly to the wall surface.
  • Steel soldier beams are attached to both the floor framing and the basement slab. This is a highly effective method to keep your walls from further bowing.
  • Helical anchors are driven through the bowing wall as tiebacks, to exert pressure in the opposite direction, and metal plates are bolted to these anchors to prevent further wall bowing.
  • As your foundation contractor we will educate you on the various floor framing support options available for your particular structural problem, as we believe in educating and empowering our customer base. No matter what method of wall support is chosen, you can be assured that we will work quickly and efficiently to stabilize your home and property.
