Tele Post Adjusting

Post by oxide » Tue Nov 11, 2014 10:49 am

so i've had tele posts in the basement for 2 years + now since my old wood ones were somewhat rotted if not completely. this fall i have noticed some movement in the floors though.

just wondering what is the best way to adjust heights? put levels upstairs (basement floor is not even anywhere)?

The best thing is to place a string line along the bottom edge of your basement beam and slowly over time adjust your posts to get your beam straight . This could be an ongoing thing though if your new teleposts are just sitting on the concrete floor. The floor could be moving with frost movement and causing your posts ,beam and main floor to move.The posts should be sitting on solid concrete footings below the floor.

Shannon, adjusting a telepost might make a good video topic... ;-)
