Indianapolis Crawl Space Sill Plate Repair

Crawl space sill plate is the structural wood that sits on top of your home's foundation wall. The crawl space sill plate is typically anchored or bolted to the top of the home's foundation wall. For most Indiana crawl spaces, the sill plate size is 2’’x4’’, but can also be larger. Sitting directly on top of the foundation wall means this type of wood is more likely to rot before other structural wood in a wet crawl space or a crawl space that is suffering from excessive moisture issues. When crawl space sill plate has rotted, it can cause sections of your flooring system to drop. This is why it is very important to replace the rotted sill plate the correct way, which is to completely remove and replace the entire rotted section of wood. Most importantly, the crawl space water or moisture issues that caused the rot should also be addressed to prevent any future wood rot or mold growth.

Indianapolis Crawl Space Floor Joist Repair

The crawl space floor joist is the structural wood that sits directly on top of your sill plate and spans across the bottom of your sub-floor. The other side of your floor joist will either sit on a main center beam of a foundation wall on the opposite side. Most Indiana crawl space floor joist damage occurs near the area where the joist sits on top of the sill plate, causing floor systems to drop or settle. Crawl space floor joist damage can also occur due to undersized crawl space floor joist spanning too far across the crawl space floor. This can cause the weight of the above area to crack crawl space joist or cause the floor above to settle and slope due to the lack of proper supports underneath it. The type of crawl space floor joist damage plays an important role in the type of repair it needs. Not all crawl space floor joist repairs are the same. Crawl space floor joist rot will need to be removed or sistered, while floor joist that span too far may need additional supports or I-Beam supports. It’s important to have a company that understands the differences in crawl space wood rot repair. SwainCo. prides itself on being that company.
