Pier & Beam Repairs - Shimming and Adjusting Foundations in Dallas Historic Districts

The City of Dallas has numerous Historic Districts with homes more than 100 years old. These properties have a unique architectural style with wrapping porches, wood exteriors and pier and beam foundations which require proper maintenance and occasionally repairs to shim and adjust piers that move with the Texas soil. We enjoy working on these homes and are amazed at the ingenuity of some of the foundation designs and materials used. We see everything from bodart stumps to rocks stacked to support floor joists that have been in place over 100 years. These interior piers eventually sink or rot away and modern repairs are necessary to repair these structures. We replace any wood that is undersized, rotten or termite damaged with concrete block and pad units. We then when shim and adjust these to level the floors to their original state. Sometimes the exterior perimeter beam has sunk and the crawl space is not accessible as the entire structure has dropped downward. In extreme cases such as this we will install new piers under the perimeter beam and we lift the home back up. Then all interior piers are raised and shimmed or new piers are installed to support the beams. We use a state of the art measuring device that measures to 0.005 inches during the lifting stage so we can lift the floors accurately and to the same height. We lift the entire structure at one time in 1/8th increments to prevent damage to the structure. If your home is in need of any foundation repairs just give us a call at the number below and we will be happy to have one of our inspectors come out and look at your property. We are very good at pier and beam repairs and offer our clients the most economical repair solutions for their home improvement projects.
