great advice I will definitely get a second opinion on this.
BTW I have a crawlspace & no basement under my house.
He said the engineer suggested the 2-3 foot wall. I don't think I should settle on this guy doing the job he seems to be a bit unsure of himself?
I had three other opinions so far on what I should do only two are contractors:
1. Had one person tell me I could just replace the one beam that is failing & it would be cheaper & hold just fine do you think that is true?
2. I had yet another person tell me I could just re-enforce the beam with a Steele plate & it would hold fine.
3. The insurance adjuster said that it is a sister system & the other beam should hold just fine & I shouldn't worry to much about it. (This one seems ridiculous to me other wise why have 2 beams if only one is needed?) The rate it was cracking I would say that is really bad advice.
Thank you for all your help I really appreciate it.
