Pier and Post Foundation Repair

November 5, 2018

 

The Problem,
Pier and Post foundations are similar to cripple walls, in this type of construction, the outside wall of the house is supported by wood post resting on unconnected concrete piers. siding is often nailed to the outside of the posts. If the posts are not braced against swaying, they may fall during an earthquake.


How to identify it,
From underneath the house, if you do not see a continuous foundation under the outside walls of the house, and you can only see unconnected concrete piers and wooden posts ( or just wooden posts) supporting the outside walls, your home may be vulnerable. Horizontal or vertical wood siding is not strong enough to brace pier to post foundations.
 

What can be done,
Pier and Post foundations are similar to cripple walls, in this type of construction, the outside wall of the house is supported by wood post resting on unconnected concrete piers. siding is often nailed to the outside of the posts. If the posts are not braced against swaying, they may fall during a earthquake.
