Crawlspace sill plate is the structural wood that sits on top of your homes foundation wall. The crawl space sill plate is typically anchored/bolted to the homes foundation wall. In most Indiana crawl spaces, the sill plate size is 2"x4" but can also be larger. Because it sits directly on top of the foundation wall, it is more likely to rot before other structural wood in a wet crawl space. This happens because of moisture that seeps through your homes foundation walls. Down spouts that are not extended can also cause crawl space sill plate to rot due to large amounts of water being dump next to the foundation wall. Damage or rotted crawl space sill plate should be completely replaced.

Crawl Space Sill Plate Repair
Crawl Space Floor Joist Repair
The crawl space floor joist is the structural wood that sits on top of the sill plate and spans across the bottom of your floor to sit on top of your center beam. Crawlspace floor joist damage can be caused by a variety of different issues. Floor joist damage near the sill plate is usually caused by the same moisture related problems that lead to the sill plate damage. Crawl space floor joist damage can also be caused by undersized floor joist spanning too far. Floor joist that span too far with no support beams between the sill plate and the center beam they sit on can cause bouncy/uneven floors. Floor joist that span too far can also crack, eliminating much of its structural integrity. These, plus other factors play a very important role in what type of crawl space floor joist repair is needed. SwainCo. has the experience and knowledge to repair damaged crawl space floor joist the correct, permanent way.
