Home's basement. Sill Plate Replacement by Masonry Waterproofing, and Drainage Masters in Portland OR and Vancouver WA

Sill Plate Replacement and Repair

Maintaining a solid and secure structure to your home is vital, especially because it involves the safety of your family. At Masonry Waterproofing, and Drainage Masters, we offer sill plate replacement and repairs that will help improve the integrity of your floors and will last for years.

What is a sill plate?

The sill plate is the material that is attached to the upper edges of the basement walls and allows firm attachment for all floor joists for the rooms above. It is typically made of 2 X 10-inch or 2 X 12-inch wood. It is often attached to the concrete foundation by large bolts, but it depends on the construction method of your particular home.

Why does a sill plate need replacing or repair?

Sill plate repair or replacement becomes necessary if the wood experiences serious dry rot, wet rot, or you have undergone a high level of termite damage. The age of the material can also determine whether it needs replacing to ensure a safe floor surface is available to walk on.

Sill Plate Repair

Our experts can offer sill plate repair if you have areas of damage that do not require a total replacement of the wood. One of the more common reasons repairs are required is the discovery that previous repairs were done incorrectly. Compromised floor joist attachments and using faulty materials can leave you and your family vulnerable to flooring collapse.

Sill Plate Inspection

We can inspect your existing sill plate and offer our recommendations as to the current condition of the material. You will want to get sill plate replacement if there are signs of termite damage, or if the wood is untreated. Untreated wood will not last long against the onslaught of moisture and age decay. Our specialists will ensure all new sill plates are secured properly and that your joists are attached in a way that provides safe and stable floor support.

If you find that weaknesses in your floor are due to loose, worn, or compromised sill plates, contact us at Masonry Waterproofing, and Drainage Masters for complete sill plate repair and replacement services. We will have the problem fixed right the first time and our prices are reasonable. We offer these services throughout the Vancouver WA and Portland OR area.
