Professional Metal Girder Beam and Joists Installation in Chicago

Metal girder beams and joists are parts of the same system, be it a floor girder beam and floor joists, or a ceiling girder beam and ceiling joists. It makes total sense to have them fabricated, and installed by the same company. We do metal girder beam and joist replacements, too! For metal girder beam and joists installation for your project in Chicago IL, use Structural Beam!

How does the girder/joist system work

Girder beams

A metal girder beam is a structural steel support member, a main load-bearing beam of the structure, that provides support for the floor, or ceiling, joists. Girder beams are the main load-bearing horizontal support members of your home, they are supported by main load-bearing walls, and, at times, by structural steel columns (support posts).

Floor and ceiling joists

Joists are secondary support beams that are in turn supported by the girder beam. Joists are made of structural steel beams of a lower lb/ft ratio. They get to bear the weight of the floor, or the ceiling and transfer it to the main (girder) beam. Girder beams, in turn, transfer that load to the load-bearing wall, and/or support posts, that transfer that load further down, to the foundation.

Structural steel beam/joist designing

Designing a sound metal girder beam/joist system requires a qualified structural engineer, and at Structural Beam we’ve got the right one for the job.

Our steel designing team will evaluate your project, and design a perfect girder/ceiling joist, or girder/floor joist assembly, fully compliant with all the relevant regulations and codes. The structural steel joists, made of steel I-beams, are a lasting, time-proven solution for both floor and ceiling.

Steel I-beam and structural steel beam supply support

Structural Beam’s comprehensive package includes the full structural steel raw materials supply support. We are always looking for ways to reduce the costs for our customers. In the case of structural steel fabrication projects, the price of the raw components is a major contributing factor to the overall cost of the project.

For all fabrication/installation projects you do with us, we will supply structural steel beams, and other metal products at the wholesale price.

Structural steel estimation

An accurate and thorough estimation of your project is done by our estimators. Materials, fabrication costs, installation costs are all figured in, so the cost of the project will not suddenly change somewhere down the line.

All the fabrication is done by us, in our in-house well-stocked structural steel fabrication workshop, fully equipped to achieve high-quality fabrication outcomes. Our metal fabricators will make sure to fabricate precisely, according to the blueprints provided.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you install a girder beam?

A girder beam, or the main load-bearing beam, has to be resting on the load-bearing walls, load-bearing columns, or both, so it can serve its function by bearing the load of your home, whilst transferring it down through the main walls, or structural steel support columns/posts.
