In my basement crawl space, in the area by my front door, I have water damage to the house framing. There are 4 2X4’s stacked between the top of the foundation and the frame of the house which need to be replaced due to water damage. Most likely the sill-plate between my one-step stoop at my front door and the 4 stacked 2X4’s will need to be replaced also. The area of wood that is damaged is about 6 feet long. It is possible that the house will need to be “jacked-up” in order to remove and replace the 2X4’s and sill-plate behind the stoop. Also, the floor will need to be supported to remove the joists from the damaged framing that needs to be replaced. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to replace all this rotted wood? I have having a VERY difficult time locating a contractor in the Elgin, IL area.
