What Should You Look Out For?

Since the 1950s, the design and construction techniques for post-frame construction in Illinois have changed little. To this end, one common feature across many post-frame buildings has become a liability: how a structure’s columns are set. Newer construction has begun to set their wood columns above the soil or utilize different materials for the frame. However, older buildings and some newer ones have their wood posts set directly into the ground. This becomes an issue as your construction ages, directly exposing your wood columns to bacteria, moisture and insects that cause deterioration. If your structure was built this way or you’ve begun to notice wood rot in your columns, Anthem Built can help.

  • Repair Sleeves – Attaching a Repair Sleeve to a decaying wood column reinforces the affected area, restoring your frame’s stability. Our Repair Sleeves are simple to install and do not necessitate cutting and excavation of columns.
  • Column Covers – Column Covers provide a complete enclosure for your column when used in conjunction with Repair Sleeves. This enhances its strength and protects it from further deterioration caused by direct exposure to moisture, insects, and bacteria in the soil.
  • Repair Sockets – You can enhance the support of your structure’s frame by securely anchoring your wood columns to an existing concrete foundation. This can be achieved through the use of Repair Sockets, which effectively attach your column or Repair Sleeve to your building’s base, ensuring its stability and positioning.
  • Galvanized Grade Boards – Our Grade Boards provide strength, protection, and resistance for your column foundations, unlike standard wood grade boards. These boards are warp-free and durable, addressing foundation settlement and column misalignment issues.
