Glpdfw.com 5.3 Foundation Performance Foundation performance considers the capability of the building to serve its intended purpose. Elements of concern are safety, function, durability, and habitability. Inadequate foundation performance may result from inadequate strength or insufficient stiffness, and is shown in many ways. Visible indications may include: 1. Cracking or separating of exterior walls 2. Rotating, buckling, or deflecting masonry veneer panels 3. Crackingofconcretefoundationelements 4. Cracking of gypsum board walls and ceilings 5. Separating of walls from ceilings or floors 6. Separatingofraftersfromaridgeboard 7. Racking of door and window frames 8. Separating or racking of other structural framing 9. Cracking, buckling, or separating of floor coverings 10.Separating of initially tight joints 11.Deflecting or tilting of structural elements 12.Deteriorating materials Observation of some of the listed conditions does not necessarily imply inadequate structural performance or insufficient stiffness. The importance of any of these indications may depend upon the age of the structure and any previous repairs.

Sill Plate Repair & Replacement A sill plate or mudsill is the bottom horizontal member of a floor system to which vertical members (floor joists) are attached. Sill plates are usually composed of lumber in sizes of 2″×4″, 2″×6″, 2″×8″, and 2″×10″. In modern construction, the sill plate is made of treated lumber and is anchored to the foundation wall. The bottom of the sill plate should be at least 6 inches above the finished grade to hinder termites and prevent the sill plate from rotting. Sill plates installed prior to the 1990′s may be made of non-treated lumber, thus inviting termite infestation and dry rot. Sill plates are the first point of contact with moisture from the foundation and are the first floor component to deteriorate. In a wet or damp crawlspace, the foundation wall will “wick” moisture up the wall and into the sill plate via capillary action. Wet sill plates also transfer moisture to the floor joists and are “magnets” for termites seeking both food and moisture. The Crawlspace Company has the edge over others involved in sill plate repair. After decades of experience, we have developed techniques whereby we gently lift the floor structure off of the foundation to install the plate. We lift the floor with hydraulics only the amount necessary to replace the sill plate. Many other contractors or handymen install the new sill plate improperly and cause more damage to be repaired later. We only apply the upward pressure necessary to complete the process.
