Our Work Speaks For Itself
A client was looking to sell her home. As potential buyers consistently visited her home for viewings, she would hear the same comments, “There’s something off about your floors.” After hearing enough, the client reached out to American Beam & Steel to investigate the issue. During the initial review of the home, American Beam & Steel reviewed the existing footing, wood beam, and column support for the affected area. American Beam & Steel created an in-depth renovation plan to replace the pad footings in the crawlspace and install steel beams and columns in place of the original structural support.
As American Beam & Steel examined the crawlspace of the home, another major issue was discovered. Mold had been growing within the crawlspace. Understanding the impact of mold within a household, American Beam & Steel quickly informed the client and created a remediation plan that would be executed in tandem with the structural improvements. American Beam & Steel created a ventilation cycle while removing surface mold. Once this was complete, American Beam & Steel treated all porous and non-porous surfaces. The affected area was consistently inspected for the remainder of the project to ensure it was effectively treated.
