Understanding Load Bearing Walls

01

Load bearing walls are strong

Think of load-bearing walls as the strong and sturdy backbone of your house. Just like our backbone supports our body's weight, load-bearing walls support the weight of the entire house, including the roof, floors, and everything inside it. These walls are like the superheroes of your home's structure, holding everything up and keeping it safe and stable.

03

Load bearing walls require consideration

Before making any alterations or removals to walls in a house, it is crucial to determine which walls are load-bearing and which are not. Altering or removing a load-bearing wall without proper structural assessment and reinforcement can lead to serious structural issues and compromise the safety of the house.

02

Load bearing walls are different

If you want to make changes to your home, like opening up a space or adding a new room, it's important to know which walls are load-bearing because you can't just take them out without a plan. Non-load-bearing walls, on the other hand, are like interior walls that separate rooms and don't carry the weight of the house. You can usually make changes to them more easily.

The Removal Process

This is where the magic and the mastery happens!

01

Preparing the Area

The day of crew begins by informing the home owner to secure pets, turn off cooling and heating systems, and making plans to not be in the area until the crew informs of completion. The crew will then prepare to make the area safe and accessible by removing furniture, laying down protective construction blankets to cover floors, hanging protective tarps to control dust, and turning off of electrical circuits and/or water. Finally, removal of drywall will occur to expose the load bearing members and structure.

02

Installation of Temporary Supports

Now that the area is prepared and the structure exposed, the process of putting up temporary support structures will occur alongside the removal of the existing support structures. This ensures that your home stays safe during the removal process. The previous supporting material is removed from the area to make room for the beam and the lifting and placing the beam into place. 

03

Load bearing beam installation

With the temporary supports in place and the wall and previous support structures removed, it is not time to lift and install the beam. The beam is heavy and made of durable and strong materials that allow it to stand in place of the existing support structures and the temporary supports. The two point that hold up the beam are also reinforced to handle the additional weight they are now expected to carry. This is where the mastery comes in, where decades of experience let us carefully and safely place the new support structure "the load bearing beam" into place and finally to let the house speak to us of it's position and final resting place.

Clean up and Removal

Now that the beam is secure and the house is provable resting, we remove the temporary supports, any remaining items that may have been required to install the beam and begin our clean up, by removing the tarps and blankets and tools. We get your home back to broom swept and now you can admire the dramatic difference in the space, trusting completely that the job has been performed safely and securely.
