3 Reasons Why You Should Evaluate Your Pier & Beam Foundation

If you have a pier and beam foundation, you need to ensure that it is properly maintained. This is because the pier and beam foundation is one of the most important parts of your house. It is responsible for supporting the entire weight of your house. There are a number of things that you need to do in order to keep your pier and beam foundation in good condition. One of the most important things is to have it evaluated on a regular basis. 

In this article, we will discuss 3 reasons why you should have your pier and beam foundation evaluated. We will also provide some tips on how to find a reputable foundation contractor.

To ensure the stability of your home

A pier & beam foundation can settle over time, which can lead to cracks in your foundation and walls. Regular inspections will ensure that any settling is detected early and can be repaired before it leads to more serious damage. 

To avoid costly repairs

By evaluating your pier and beam foundation regularly, you can catch small problems before they become big, expensive ones. If you wait until there are major problems with your pier & beam foundation, the repairs will be much more expensive. By having regular inspections, you can catch issues early and fix them before they become major problems.

Does Your Pier & Beam Foundation Need Repair?


Foundation issues can present as cracks in your walls, large settlement movement, and cracked tiles. But different causes of foundation failure have other signs to look for. Most commonly seen foundation repair problems include concrete settling and cracking, wood rotting and molding, cracks forming in the drywall near windows, and gaps between doors and windows. Less common issues include cracked bricks that have become separated from the rest of the structure or a door that doesn’t correctly close because it is sitting skewed from its frame.


Another sign you have a failing foundation is if there is a significant change in indoor temperatures throughout your home. This can be due to any number of things; however, if a portion of your home adjacent to an exterior wall suddenly becomes extremely cold/hot when set temperatures are deemed appropriate it’s best to contact your local licensed contractor to identify what exactly causing this problem so they may correct this issue before property damage occurs.
