Common Support Beam Problems
Common support beam problems include cracks, erosion or water damage. Improper support beam installation can also lead to issues such as seeing a “belly” or “sagging” ceiling, or other causes that call for inspection.
Foundational movement could also be a problem. Foundation settlement can sometimes cause the floor to sink, taking away the support and structure that held it up. This can cause the beams to become bent or curved as they struggle to support the extra weight with the lack of support.
Additionally, a softened or damaged support beam could be due to termites or wood rot. Again, this is not an issue to leave unresolved as it will worsen with time. In instances like this, the solution will most likely be to replace the entire beam. Take heed: this is not an area where patchworking is the way to go! This is a dangerous and potentially difficult procedure to conduct and should not be undertaken lightly.
Finally, faulty installation could lead to functional problems such as unleveling of floors or ceilings. Not only does faulty installation cause safety hazards and cost you money, it is totally preventable if the hands of a professional.
If you’re experiencing these issues, don’t hesitate to contact a professional to repair the issue or risk exacerbating the existing problems!
