Install a load-bearing beam to replace column with beam in your home

Column, when it is in place, is a fine element of the architectural layout. Columns, that are out of place, and in the way, don’t need to be there anymore. Get the freedom of shaping your living space, call Structural Beam today at 773-917-8998 to replace load-bearing columns with beams, and make your home more livable.

Get it out of the way

When looking to convert your basement into a living or recreational space, you might need to install a support beam along with support steel columns, to do away with old structural columns, that get in the way.

Why did they even put them there, one might ask. Such was the old construction way, besides that basement might have never been planned to be anything more, than just a basement.

Now, when many homeowners are looking to better utilize the property and get more bang for a buck, new construction technologies come to help.

Structural steel I-beams come to help

To get rid of a load-bearing column, you’ll need more columns. Yes, that’s right. Structural steel I-beam is strong and can span distances, yet it needs support, too. To install structural steel beams, that can support heavy loads and eliminate the need for the old support columns, you’ll still need to install new columns, made of structural steel I-beam, that will be providing the structural integrity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can an I beam be a column?

I-beam makes great columns, and some types of I-beam, like H-piles, are exclusively used as piles and columns. The shape of the metal I-beam is well-suited to withstand the shearing forces.

Can beams be used in place of load-bearing walls?

Structural steel beams are often used to replace the old-bearing walls, which limit the living space plan options and eat up a lot of internal space of the building. Installed together with structural steel support columns, steel support beams provide an easy way to rebuild a house. Metal support beams give new life to your home, allowing you to remodel it to your new requirements.
