Things to know about the steel beam installation

A job for professionals

Steel beams installation is a job for qualified professionals to execute successfully.

Structural engineer

It requires a structural engineer to

  • evaluate the building conditions
  • calculate the structural loads and determine beam sizing for the project
  • create the blueprints and plans

Since steel beams installation has to do with the structural stability of your home, it’s not the place and time for any DIY experiments.

After the blueprints and plans have been drawn, it’s time for steel estimators to do their job. At Structural Beam, we’ve got experienced steel estimators to evaluate the costs of your steel beam installation project, so you can plan the financing accordingly.

Structural steel fabricators

Steel I-beams can’t be installed “as is”, they have to be fabricated into structural steel members, like steel support beams and steel support columns. Our structural steel fabricators will cooperate with the structural engineer to produce fabrication shop drawings, so the fabrication can be exact, and structures fabricated will not require any on-site adjustments.

Structural Beam provides both structural steel fabrication service, and raw components supplies for the project you decide to do with us. You’ll be getting wholesale steel beam prices, which will help to reduce steel beam cost and overall project cost. Structural steel I-beam cost is one of the major contributing costs of the project, we are happy to offer you a way to save money.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to install steel beams?

The cost to install steel beams will depend on the steel beam cost, depending on the beam size and quantity of beam required, other material costs, and installation costs. At Structural Beam, we’ve got a team of experienced structural steel estimators, upload your blueprints in the form on our website, and we’ll get back to you with a price quote per linear foot installed.

How do you install a beam?

Installing a new structural steel beam in the residential construction building requires creating temporary support, removing the old beam/beams, and installing the new ones. Details of a particular job differ from project to project.

How much wall does a steel beam need to sit on?

As a rule of the thumb, a new steel beam requires 6 inches plus bearing ( overlap with a load-bearing wall) on each side of the beam. By doing your project with Structural Beam, you can be sure that all the steel beam installations, performed by us, will be IRC-compliant.
