Wrong ways to repair

  • Wooden beams/piers/floor supports. Installing wood to provide structural support of a floor system is not ideal. It lacks structural stability and also attracts termites.
  • Concrete Piers. These supports are not stable enough to sit on dirt and support a structure.
  • Store Bought Supports. These supports are not built to maintain the weight of each structure, since each structures weight is different.
