Why does my Pier and Beam foundation move?

Why does my  Pier and Beam Foundation move?

Before the use of the conventional slab on grade or floating slabs, the pier and beam foundation was the typical foundation constructed to support a house. Before 1950, the pier and beam foundation was the most economical and practical foundation for homes. With the development and advances in concrete design, contractors and developers started to construct floating slabs as opposed to pier and beam foundations.


Homeowners should be well informed about what type of foundation repair system is being installed to lift or level a house. Don't be fooled by the sells pitch or the Life Time Foundation Repair Warranty. Get a second opinion from a structural engineer before you decide to invest thousands of dollars on foundation repair that is unjustified and unnecessary.
