Power Posts & Beams

Wood beams that carry the load of your home can sag causing drywall cracks, sloping floors, doors or windows that won’t open properly and other structural issues. This is typically an issue when the current support system is spaced too far apart to be effective.

We commonly see the latter in older renovated homes. When those homes were built, they were designed to carry a fairly light load: linoleum floors, formica countertops and wallpaper. Our recent design trends call for much heavier materials, such as granite countertops and tile floors and backsplashes. These updates are lovely, but the structure of many homes can’t sufficiently bear the weight.

Your floors can also begin to sag and slope due to inadequate foundation construction or deterioration over time. These problems typically are found over crawl spaces, but can happen over basements too. No matter the cause or location of the foundation problem, we can help you fix it right.

Our Power Post & Beam Solution

We proudly use power posts and supplemental beams manufactured by Grip-Tite Manufacturing Company. For more than 95 years, they have been the world’s leading authority in earth anchoring technology. They earned that title by providing a permanent and affordable solution to settling foundations. Their piers comply with international building codes and have been independently tested for strength and durability.

Power Posts & Beams

Power Posts are a reliable solution for sagging floor joists and un-supported beams within a crawlspace or basement. They consist of a heavy-duty, adjustable steel column that is adaptable to slab or precast block installations and can support vertical loads greater than 60,000 pounds. NOTE: Power Posts are not designed to support or resist lateral loads. Supplemental Beams are not designed to support floor joists that are rotten or deteriorated.

Advantages of our Power Posts:

  • Cost-competitive versus other jack-post or lolly column alternatives
  • Stabilizer spacing can be adjusted to assure stresses in beam joists and soils are within acceptable limits.
  • High capacity 3-inch O.D. steel pier column can be cut to desired length at job site
  • Pre-drilled holes in steel plate allow for connection to beam or floor joists
  • Heavy-duty 10-inch long threaded rod allows for easy adjustment
  • Provides supplemental support of an axial load of up to 30,000 lbs. (30 Kips or 15 tons)
  • Compacted crushed stone or crushed (recycled) concrete base effectively transfers the structural load from the stabilizer to the existing soils. A poured concrete base (footing) may also be considered.
