Supports under crawlspace

(Stefano Pecchia, CPI) #1

Hey all, quick question as this is the first time I’m seeing this under a crawlspace where two 2x6’s are being used to support the load above. Any thoughts on this? Also,…footings? lol

Improper support piers in crawlspace.

I agree …Recommend immediate repair by a qualified Carpenter .

All depends on the load above and why this additional support was added. It could be to just eliminate the bounce in the floor in which case the support only needs to be secured properly to avoid movement.
The inspector is the one that sees that whole picture to evaluate that. :slight_smile:

Thanks everyone!

Agreed. By the way, if it was “under the crawlspace” that would be subterranean.
