Benefits Of Pier And Beam
When considering which foundational system is most suitable for you and your home, there really are only two primarily common types: pier and beam or slab concrete. With pier and beam the benefits provided might appeal to you, however the understanding of what they are and the challenges that accompany them should be understood. The Pier and beam method essentially provides an elevated lift from the ground surface making it easier for utilities to pass through your home while creating a crawlspace. Even though slab concrete foundation is more commonly used in today’s construction industry, pier and beam does provide a less costly option when a repair is needed. Our repairmen will not have to break through the concrete floor to make repairs such as damaged or broken pipes. Another primary benefit and purpose of the pier and beam method is to provide an elevation from the ground surface and thereby avoiding the grounds water and moisture issues.
Pier And Beam Makeup
Many of clients, when considering which foundational system is better suited for them and their new home, will consider the make up of each. In particular with the pier and beam method, the materials included in its construction are concrete pillars, steel beams, joists and gage steel joists. These are all carefully crafted together to produce an elevated surface for the house and thereby indirectly creating the crawlspace.
Many homeowners value their crawlspace as it creates an additional space between the floor of your home and the ground surface. Often times you can use this for storage and or run the required utilities underneath. The utilization and repair of utilities such as mechanical, electrical and plumbing are seen in many crawlspaces. The space between the ground and the floor obviously carries air and therefore naturally creates a more insulated atmosphere between the ground and the home.
