UNDERSTANDING I-BEAM INSTALLATION SERVICES
GUARDIAN FOUNDATION REPAIR, LLC OFFERS I-BEAM INSTALLATION SERVICES IN KNOXVILLE, JOHNSON CITY, & THE SURROUNDING TN TRI-CITIES!
The type of I-beam we use is a W6”x16” (unless specified differently by an engineer), anchored to slab below and bolted onto the floor system above with ½ inch bolts. Gaps behind the I-beam are filled with a high strength mortar. In some cases wood blocking must be added to the floor system above to prevent twisting and movement of wood framing. If the blocks are sheered or displaced, carbon fiber is not an adequate repair. I-beams will need to be installed on 4’-6’ centers and in some cases, the wall will need to be filled with concrete.
