Block and Beam

Conventional flooring or crawl-space foundations utilize block and beam piers to support the home’s subfloor.  Block and beam support runs perpendicular to the floor joist providing strength to the interior home.  These piers are positioned 6 to 8 feet apart depending on timber sizing and the area to be supported.

A Block and Beam support pier is arranged with a base pad, foundation blocks, and a timber.  Once set, to the desired height, the pier and subfloor joist are shimmed tight.
