Old Florida bungalows are known for their use of pier and beam foundations; as this type of architecture was popular in many parts of Florida during the early twentieth century.
Many bungalows were built before modern building techniques like slabs became more common, so they rely heavily on piers as part of their structural support system.
Because these homes have been around for decades, they often need pier repairs due to natural deteriorations such as termite damage and warping over time.

What is Pier and Beam Repair?
Pier and beam foundations use wooden beams, called piers, to support the home’s weight.
The piers are made of treated wood and usually embedded in cement or concrete footings in order to create a strong base for the entire structure. This type of foundation is advantageous for older homes because it allows for flexibility in terms of construction, since different heights can be achieved by adjusting the size of the pier or by adding additional support posts.
Additionally, pier and beam foundations make it easy to access plumbing, wiring, and other utilities since there is plenty of space between the floor joists and the soil underneath.
One of the benefits of a pier and beam foundation is that it is relatively easy to repair if it becomes damaged. For example, if one of the piers shifts or settles, it can often be repaired by simply jacking up the beam and resetting the pier.
In some cases, more extensive repairs may be necessary, but these are usually quite straightforward as well.
