I have never built a porch before, but I understand the concept. These piers are under a 12x6 porch concrete with brick veneer steps. I did not see any signs of cracking or movement in the brick or the foundation. The home owner says this is how they were installed when home was built 2008 and they were not added later. These piers are just for added support correct? They are out of plumb and shimmed very poorly, but the porch is not in jeopardy if these aren’t fully supporting correct?
My report says “Concrete pillars were out of plumb and was shimmed to fit. There is no evidence of movement or structural deficiencies due to this. Evaluation and repairs as needed is recommended by a qualified mason as desired.”
