    Estimate Request from Glenview, IL

    provide me a quote for work at 613 Glenwood ln Glenview. Since then we have gotten an engineering firm to provide more detail on the work needed. Please review the description below and provide a quote. Work recommended for long term use We would recommend that the following repairs be considered to help prevent future differential movements within the floor framing beneath the 1943 construction: 1. Realign and laterally brace the triple-2x8 beam. Jacks may be required to temporarily lift the floor and allow repositioning and attachment of the existing beam. Replacement of the triple 2x8 member may be an easier approach, as inelastic deformations within the existing twisted triple 2x8 will likely not be able to be twisted back into proper position. The repaired triple 2x8 should be provided with wood screws to secure all of three members together on a regular spacing, to close gaps between individual members. 2. Replace the south two piers and spread footings to provide a plumb supports that are properly aligned and centered on the triple 2x8s. This can be done with a steel column as proposed by Atlas or can be done with new masonry piers. Reconstructed masonry piers should be provided with treated wood bearing plates to support the triple 2x8 beam. Ms. Janis Post March 12, 2018 Page 5 3. Replace current shims atop the masonry piers to provide a level bearing surface for the composite beam at each masonry pier with decay resistant material. 4. Install continuous 2x4s, (one on each side), along the length of the modified beam or provide additional blocking and means of attachment to laterally brace this member. 5. If the supplemental support at the east beam is to be maintained, provide decay resistant posts on new concrete pads that replace the wood sills that rest on the dirt floor.
