What Is a Pier and Beam Foundation?
Generally, a pier and beam foundation has cement or concrete block exterior walls and interior piers supporting a structure’s wood floor joists and support beams. Underground is a concrete footing anchoring the entire foundation to prevent shifting in volatile soils. This foundation type is common in homes featuring crawl spaces. Ashton Sawing and Drilling may install a pier and beam foundation as an ideal choice when building a structure on uneven land, in a location with regularly expanding and contracting soil, and where flooding is a potential problem. Many areas around Texas, Louisiana, and throughout the nation have these issues when developing structures for commercial and industrial use. Our crew can handle your pier and beam foundation design, spacing, leveling, and other project concerns. If you need a pier and beam foundation for an addition to your structure, we can integrate it so that it’s perfectly level with your existing structure and accommodates your new construction.
Pier and Beam Foundation Build & Repair Process
A pier and beam foundation will cost $8 to $15 per square foot, so you’ll pay between $16,000 and $30,000 to build one for a 2,000-square-foot floor. When investing in a pier and beam foundation, you should always choose a concrete specialist with licensing, training, and experience in this foundation type. The installation process starts with using the floor plan to determine where piers need to go and then digging holes for the piers. After placing the piers in the holes and anchoring them in place, we backfill the holes. Next, we build an interconnected, level grid of beams, onto which the construction team will build or place the joists and subfloor. Repairing a pier and beam foundation may include stabilizing the ground before replacing or rebuilding a pier. After repairs, we verify the piers and beams are level to ensure the structure stays in optimal condition.
