What can be done for a home that needs some extra structural support? One option is to install adjustable steel columns. There are several different types of these devices. They are often used during remodels where a wall might need knocking down and support is needed.

These poles should not be installed by you yourself, but instead, a structural engineer should make the assessment of where the pole should be located, what size it should be and what type will work best.

Steel columns are made with a hollow core and can be extended to fit the height of the location where it is to be installed. They are also painted with a paint that protects against rust. If this paint is scraped off, it needs to be replaced, since a rusty column could be at risk for collapse.

It is important that the columns are as level as possible, they can’t lean more that 1 inch over the fully extended length.
