Rim Joist Repair
The area where the first floor meets the foundation can be more susceptible to moisture. Sometimes, when the sill plate is installed too close to the floor or wasn’t properly pressure treated prior to installation, moisture will infiltrate and transfer to the rim joist, causing significant structural damage. The rim joists are attached perpendicular to the joists and provide lateral support for the outskirts of the floor.
