Structural problems can occur in even the most well-built homes due to excess moisture, wood rot, and termite damage. If these threats arise and structural repairs are neglected, your home will start to suffer in the form of bouncy and spongey floors, drywall cracks, sticking doors, and sloping and uneven floors.
Is your home experiencing any structural issues or wood rot? If so, you may need floor joist repairs, beam replacement, subfloor repairs, sill plate replacement, additional floor supports, or new beams.
Every home is different and can present unique structural problems. Work with the professionals at BAY Crawl Space & Foundation Repair to create a custom plan for repairing your home’s structure.

Your home may be experiencing structural problems for any number of reasons, including:
If moisture is able to get into your home’s foundations, it can wreak havoc and start to destroy your home’s structure. You might start to notice uneven floors, bouncy floors, sticking doors, or cracking drywall which are all signs of structural damage. Luckily, we offer repairs, reinforcements, and replacements for all types of structural problems you may have.
Whether you need beam replacement, sister joists, subfloor replacement, repairing of floor joists, or floor reinforcement, we’ve got you covered.
When we conduct your free consultation, we’ll take a closer look at what structural problems your home is dealing with. Each home is different and has unique problems, which is why we create a custom plan for each one of our clients. Here are the structural repair solutions we can provide.
If your home’s structure needs some additional support, the best solution may be to double down on the joists, meaning we will add sistering joists to the structure. This solution provides your home with increased stability and will restore structural integrity to floor joists that have been damaged by moisture.
If there has been severe damage to the crawl space beams, you’ll likely need to replace them altogether to reinforce the stability of the structure. If your beams are weak due to severe damage, you’ll notice bouncy or spongy floors. By replacing the beams, those problems can be easily solved. If the damage to the beams isn’t severe or the beams can be easily accessed, repairing and reinforcing the beams is another option to solve this structural issue.
Repairing or Replacing Subfloors
If you need subfloor repair, we may be able to provide these services using non-intrusive methods, such as subfloor plating. This can save you money and lead to a more timely structural repair. However, if the damage to the subfloor is severe or the subfloor can’t be accessed from below, then a full subfloor replacement will be needed.
Fixing Problems Caused by Structural Damage
If you’re dealing with structural damage, you probably first noticed changes in your home such as sloping floors, sticking doors, or cracked drywall. These are all common signs that there is a deep structural problem that’s starting to make a significant impact on your home.
These issues are typically caused by weak floor framing due to moist wood on the floor joists and beams. We can fix these issues by repairing or replacing beams and floor joists, as well as reinforcing the structure making it strong and stable.
Reinforce Floor Structure With Titan Crawl Jacks
If your floor structure is weakened, we’ll utilize TITAN Adjustable Crawl Jacks to reinforce and strengthen the structure. Our standard TITAN Crawl Jack is installed with powerful, custom-engineered footings, capable of supporting 12,000 pounds each.
We install Titan Crawl Jacks by digging and pouring custom footings. Once the footings have cured, we will custom-fit the pipe and assembly which allows us to add pressure and lift the structure. The metals used for this are galvanized to prevent rusting in the future.
This solution alone can stop bouncing or spongy floors, prevent future settlement problems in the crawl space, close up cracks above doors, and stabilize the upstairs structure.
Even the most structurally-sound homes can suffer from structural problems due to exposure to moisture. If your home’s structure is exposed to moisture, it’s likely that you’ll face problems in the future that’ll cost you headaches and a lot of money. But instead of waiting on a ticking time-bomb, you can take action now to prevent structural problems.
Moisture can infiltrate your home’s structure a few different ways, including:
In order to prevent future structural problems due to moisture, you’ll need to change your crawl space. This moisture-free type of crawl space is known as unvented, encapsulated, or sealed. Crawl space encapsulation is a system that protects your home from moisture damage by managing humidity.
By altering your crawl space now to keep moisture out, you’ll be saving your home from damage and your wallet from future repair expenses.

Everyone that made contact with me along the way was courteous and professional. Price was reasonable and they performed quality work. Timely, outstanding workmanship at a fair price.”
Most honest evaluation we had, didn’t try to sell us on anything we didn’t need, most competitive pricing compared to 3 other companies we reached out to for the same issue! Thanks for not using scared tactics…
We had our crawlspace encapsulated by BAY three years ago at a fraction of the cost of JES’s estimate. The work was done on time and to exceptional standards. The office has been courteous, the workers arrived on time…
