Throughout the years we have discovered the best way to repair a sinking floor is by installation of column posts. Over time a structure can lose its integrity causing unstable flooring. This is often due to over-spanning of joists and deteriorating wood under the floor. Column posts can be placed under existing beams or girders. As well as being used to support the installation of new beams. Column posts are adjustable giving the opportunity to not only stabilize but to lift up on the uneven flooring. 

Often on existing girders the support posts are too small, sinking or falling apart. As the support posts fail to hold up the girder, the floor begins to sink causing problems throughout the structure. We are able to shift the weight of the floor from the existing failing posts onto our solid, adjustable column posts. Providing the floor all the support it needs to be stabilized and level. 

We can also use column posts to hang up support beams, where needed, under the sinking floor. This is often used to create support for floor joists between existing girders. This method allows us to lift up on the exact spot necessary to level the floor, close cracks in drywall and to free sticky doors.

If you notice uneven, sagging, bouncy, sinking and non-level floors, column posts may be the solution for you. In addition to repairing the floor they can also be used to close cracks in drywall and ease tension on sticking doors. With over 30 years of experience we have the right solution for you.
