Concrete Column Supports in Gilman, CT

The homeowners attempted to fix the problem of rotting support beams in the Gilman, CT crawl space by creating columns made of concrete blocks. These are short term solutions that do not fix the long term problem of a sagging crawl space. The thick, heavy columns will continue to sink into the earth below as the weight of the house pushes down on them. More shims, the wooden planks above the blocks, will need to be wedged in as the columns sink, and the "solution" will ultimately fail.
