Childers Brothers: Lubbock Pier & Beam Adjustment Services

Is your Lubbock, Texas home on a pier and beam foundation and in need of an adjustment or professional attention? Do you believe something troublesome has happened in the crawl space? Seeing evidence or signs that the home is losing stability? Contact Childers Brothers, a local family-owned company that’s been working with homes like yours for decades.

Lubbock has plenty of pier and beam-supported homes since the 1950s. There are modern homeowners who are happy to build and utilize the small to large crawl spaces where they can install any number of systems — central heating, electricity, or plumbing (among other upsides).

They do come with a set of challenges like any other foundation system, though. Let’s look at four of the most common issues we help with.

Common Pier & Beam Foundation Issues

  • Where wood and earth coexist, you find mold, mildew, and rot (especially without any protectants). Over time, these can weaken your beams and all other systems you may have installed or relocated in the crawl space.
  • Moisture, mold, and mildew also accumulate in your crawl space, making it damp. All of this moisture simply adds to the overall degradation of the area.
  • Your exterior piers can crack, move or give out. In your home, you may notice this through windows and/or door frames becoming noticeably slanted or off-kilter.
  • Flooring will become uneven and shift, sag, and sink. This can lead to a hefty repair job and a host of other issues that would be FAR better to avoid.

Maybe you’ve stacked immense weight atop a certain section of the beams, and as that slowly buckles other nearby areas creak every time you pass through (so annoying!). We can absolutely get our technicians in there to adjust the beams and move them back into place. They’ll also make all necessary repairs to beams, concrete supports, etc.
