Structural Framing

The “bones” of the house or structure. Below are some basic pictures and descriptions of common framing components that we replace or restore.  These are integral components of the home which can be some of the most difficult to replace.
4x6 Sill plate

Sill Plates
The 1st layer of wood around the perimeter of the foundation is the sill plate. It is often susceptible to insect and moisture damage. Compression and rot can lead to cracked walls, sloping floors, and other problems.  Replacement requires proper shoring prior to removal to ensure additional settlement does not occur
