THE SITUATION: Most common forms of sill damage occur from termites, carpenter ants and moisture problems. Sills in older colonial homes and barns tend to be at or just above grade, making them highly susceptible to decay. Newer homes can also experience these problems since sills tend to rot from the outside in and may look fine from the basement, when in reality they are not!
Structural beams may require replacement due to insect and moisture damage or inadequate installation. Under-sized beams or beams with improper column spacing can lead to beam deflection and cracking, which commonly results in sagging walls and floors.
THE SOLUTION: With over 25 years of experience in sill replacement, beam replacement and other structural repairs, M J Murphy Structural is able to assess, quote and perform the work related to your project.
M. J. Murphy Structural looks forward to discussing your project with you.
