How to Tell if Your Wall is Load Bearing, How To Cut a Doorway in a Load Bearing Wall
 
08:39
Here we show you DIY friends how to tell if a wall is load bearing, and we explain the physics and engineering behind load bearing walls, and break down each of the components of a stud wall for you in this bearing wall design example, like jack studs and kind studs, both important parts of your load bearing wall framing. If you are about to take down your wall in the kitchen to open up the kitchen to the living room, you need to know if that is a • bearing wall structure because you can't just demolish that wall, there are certain bracing precautions you must use prior to load bearing wall removal. So at this point, you really have to study and learn how to know if a wall is load bearing. A load bearing wall is a wall that directly bears the point load weight of the roof trusses or a second floor above it. If it is a true load bearing wall, then usually the floor joists of the attic above your wall will sit with one end of the joist on the top of your stud wall, and so people remodeling a house need to determine if the wall is load bearing or not. If you see a floor joist end on top of your stud wall, then it is a load bearing wall, and you know you can't just remove load bearing wall until you put the new framing in. The strict definition of the load bearing wall is if the ends of a roof truss or floor joists sit on top of your stud wall, then you know there is a point load going down to ground. But what if the joists are just traveling across the top of your stud wall, and the joists are supported on both ends of the house, is your wall still load bearing? In this potential bearing wall design example, opinions vary. It's a tough question, not everyone is a structural engineering expert. I witnessed 2 contractors debating over whether this was a load bearing wall. Some people say yes these are load bearing walls, and some say no. But you cant go wrong in treating it as a load bearing wall, and just make sure you don't take the whole wall down at once. But if it is a load bearing wall, you need to build bracing to support the floor joists or other loads above prior to removing any studs from this wall. Also the header over the door should be made of two 2x6 pieces of wood nailed together and mounted so the 6" tall part should be the header over the door top. You may need a 1/2" thick filler piece nailed between them. This is what I think is the funny part, you have to build a bearing wall framing structure in order to take down a load bearing framing structure. Load bearing wall removal If the wall is load bearing, then you cannot just start pulling studs out of it to open up your kitchen for that open concept look because then the load, which is your roof or second floor, could come crashing down. You need to build a temporary stud wall and mount it pretty close to your load bearing wall to support the ceiling structure above it before you can remove that load bearing wall. At the risk of sounding repetitive, do not remove any load bearing walls unless you have some type of shoring or temporary bearing wall framing installed. You have to install a load bearing wall to remove a load bearing wall. Sounds counter-intuitive, but think of this temporary bearing wall as a stunt double for the original. Based on the information in this video, you'll be able to quickly determine whether your wall is load bearing or not, and see the necessary anatomy of what a properly framed door cut out should look like to create a cutout for a door in a load bearing wall. Once you decide to cut out a door frame into the wall, this video also shows you the anatomy of the stud wall framing, and discusses the wall framing, the header board, the jack stud, and the king stud, all components in involved in framing a door into the middle of stud wall framing.

http://www.homebuildingandrepairs.com/engineering/index.html Make sure that you watch this video before you remove any interior walls inside of your home. As a building contractor I've seen some big problems from inexperienced do-it-yourselfers and interior wall removals. If you don't know the difference between a structural or loadbearing wall, you shouldn't plan on removing any walls. I would advise you to contact a structural engineer instead of a contractor for more advice on which walls you can and cannot remove in your home. Remember that some of these walls are extremely important and could create safety problems for everyone living in your home if they're removed.

How To Tell If A Wall Is Load Bearing
 
04:13
In this video, I show you how to tell if a wall is load-bearing! There are a few things that you can do to determine whether or not a wall is load-bearing; however, I outline one of the easiest methods! All that you have to do is look on top of the wall and see if it is supporting anything above it. If it isn't supporting anything, then is is LIKELY not a load-bearing wall. If it is supporting joists from the floor above or roof supports, then it is LIKELY a load-bearing wall. I show you a load-bearing beam in my basement, and use it as an example to explain the process.

How To Remove internal load bearing wall with picture frame steel beam installation
 
05:02
Work Type: Engineering, Steel beam installations Project: How to remove load bearing spinal wall of property, and install picture frame steel beam support with cross tie of secondary floor support beam to support first floor landing and rooms. Beam sizes b1+b3: 203 x 203 x 52 UC Qty2 - Brace supports b2 + b4: 203 x 203 x46 UC Qty 2 - Columns b5: Existing 178 x 102 x 30 UC - first floor support H16 bolts with 100mm fin plates to secure cross beam to the picture frame web Location: Forest Hill, South London 2015 Methodology This installation was one of the more complicated installations, the configuration of a box frame, also referenced as a Picture frame configuration. The box frame involved four steel beams mechanically connected together to present a very strong load bearing frame resistant to both vertical and side loads. Box frame installations are generally deployed when clients want to removal a wall, end-to-end, without the two piers sticking out of either side of the room. So imagine you open two rooms, and you want a flush wall between the two rooms on both sides, to make the room look as if it were one pre-constructed room, then you would install a box frame of steel beams. The advantages of box frame steel beam installations, is that they can also bare the load of other secondary beams that splice off the frame to support secondary rooms, floor structures and openings. For this project, structural calculations were prepared by a third party engineer arranged by the client. Based on these working items we procure the correct steel beams ready for installation. The load bearing wall was constructed of single skin brickwork with internal timber rafters supporting the two floors above. Normally single skin masonry over one floor does not require large steel beam installations, however, this single skin wall was the spinal wall of the property and elevated three stories above the ground floor. A loft conversion was also structurally weighted onto this wall, so the loading was at maximum for this style of property. Installation of acrow props is carried out to remove the load from the internal walls to facilitate installation of the box frame beams. Installation of: 2No 203 x 203 x 42 colum beams 2No 203 x 203 x 52 span beams 1No 152 x 152 x 30 single span beam – supporting the first floor landing and bedroom Once the box frame has been installed, the next phase is to brick up the space above the top span beam to place the load of the spinal wall onto the box frame. The final 50mm of wall section is dry packed with a dense mortar mix to reduce shrinkage for the connection of the box frame. The box frame is checked with a laser level during the curing process to ensure stable geometry of the frame supports. Internally the box frame is battened and covered with Gyproc fire line board to meet Uk Building regulations for fire proofing means of escape in residential properties. ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— Full case study can be found at: http://www.diligentdevelopments.co.uk/steel-beam-installation-sydenham-case-study/ ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— Further videos of interest: 1 - how to renovate bathroom and install a shower cubicle london https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbyYMXWXiQc 2 - how to remove internal load bearing wall with steel beam RSJ installation | London https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDJJ2fmndz8 3- how to tile bathroom walls and install concealed shower valve https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w03Q5M9-NqA 4 - How to remove load bearing walls with RSJ steel beams, and bi fold doors installation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obD3_RopErw ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— Check out Diligent Developments: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/diligentdevelopments Twitter: https://twitter.com/diligentdevuk Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/diligentdev G+: https://plus.google.com/+Diligentdevelopmentsuk Tumblr: http://diligentdev.tumblr.com/ web: http://www.diligentdevelopments.co.uk

We did most the work ourselves but also paid a carpenter by the hour for maybe 2 days. We then added cypress trim, sheetrock, plaster and paint. All tolled, maybe $1,000.

how to remove internal load bearing wall with steel beam RSJ installation | London

This is how its done people! Work Type: Engineering, Steel beam installation Project: How to remove load bearing wall and install supporting RSJ steel beam. Methodology As part of our steel beam design service we prepare the structural calculations to specify the correct steel beam sizes to install for the client. The next phase is removal of the load bearing rear wall and installation of temporary structural supports using heavy duty acrow props. Installation of a 1No steel beams installed. Spec of 203 x 102 x 23 UB. This support beam was chosen as the wall above the ground floor was a a single skin constructed of solid break and the span of the beam was 3.1m. Structural props remain in place to support the steel beam. These supports are loaded onto the existing foundation of the previously removed internal wall, providing good stability for the props during the curing process. This allows the curing process of the engineering brick supports to settle with minimum shrinkage and movement across the span of the beam. Above the steel beam, we dry pack the small gaps up to the first floor support with a semi dry, strong 2:1 cement mixture. This is compacted into the gaps between the beam and the first floor. After curing for 24hrs, the support props can be removed surrounding the support beam, leaving the two acrow props in place under the support beam for a further 24hrs. After the 24hr curing process all acrow props can be removed and the beam bares the weight of the first floor. Internally, the steel beams are then lined with fire retardant board and the internal reveals are plaster skimmed. The client had electricians onsite, so they were able to carry out sockets and light switch migrations, which is a service we normally offer as part of the steel beam installation.

Before doing any work, determine if the wall is load bearing or non-load bearing. If in doubt, consult a structural engineer. 2. If the wall is load bearing, a temporary wall will need to built using 2x8 plates on the floor and ceiling and 2x4 studs at an angle to support any weight from the floors above. 3. Hammer the studs into the temporary wall until they’re snug. 4. Use a drill/driver to secure a brace across the studs. 5. Use a level to draw the outline for the opening. Cut the opening using a reciprocating saw. 6. Remove the wall board and studs in the area of the new opening. 7. If needed, fill any extra space with studs. 8. Install the first jack studs on either side of the opening, with a small stud attached to hold the bottom plate of the new opening. 9. Install two sill plates into the bottom of the opening. Secure them with screws. 10. Create a header for the new opening using two 2x12 boards with a piece of ½” plywood sandwiched in between with construction adhesive and screws. 11. Install the header in the opening. Install the additional jack studs inside the opening for the header to rest on. 12. Attach the jack studs and header using screws. 13. With the header in place, the temporary wall can be removed. 14. Use the reciprocating saw to cut the drywall on the other side of the opening. 15. Touch up the drywall or plaster around the opening.

Removing a Load Bearing Wall - DIY
 
21:56
There are many things you'll need to know before you start to demolition a load-bearing wall - so before you start, make sure you're well informed. The Coach walks you through how the process gets underway. Removing load bearing walls or partitions is quite different from removing interior non load bearing walls. While the difference should be obvious, let’s outline it right here: load bearing walls are structural elements, non load bearing walls are not. **Careful! The above should not be construed in any way as an encouragement to remove load bearing walls without replacing them with some equal or greater structural element.

RONA - How to Build an Interior Wall
 
05:02
The addition of an interior, non-load bearing wall is a simple and affordable project that allows you to update the layout of your house. The location of the new wall depends in part on the alignment of the ceiling joists. If the joists are perpendicular to the line of the new wall, you can install it almost anywhere, preferably against a stud in the existing wall. If the ceiling joists are parallel to the line of the new wall, its location will be determined by the joist near the intended location. Tools and materials you'll need: • Chalk line • Circular saw • Drill with screw attachments • Drywall panels • Electronic stud finder • Hammer • Joint compound • Kiln dried lumber (S-dry) wall studs ( 2" × 4" × 8" or 2" × 3" × 8") • Level • Measuring tape • Paint • Paintbrush and roller • Pencil • Plumb bob • Sealer • Small nails • Square • Stepladder • Taping knife • Wood screws - 3 ¼" • Working gloves More advice on interior home renovation projects at rona.ca: http://www.bit.ly/168XHMe

Load Bearing Wall Pros spent enormous amounts of time and energy explaining, sketching out on paper, basically everything short of using a dancing bear to get homeowners to understand how they do what they do. Video tutorials on the internet are long and dreadfully boring and without crawling under your home to learn first-hand, "beams, girders, piers, and floor joists," might as well be in another language. They needed a solution! This whiteboard animation video explains not only a basic pier and beam foundation but also what it takes to support a home in order to remove a load bearing wall in less time than it took to type this description. It took something that was nearly impossible to understand and communicated it by using creative techniques in 90 seconds. Now, Load Bearing Wall Pros will save countless hours of explaining with a mere touch of a play button. This is what we do at Rhett Creative. We free you up by freeing up your message.

How To Repair, Replace Rotted Stud Wall Bottom Plate, Non Load Bearing Walls
 
05:14
Here we show you how to repair and replace the bottom wood plate of a wood stud wall that has been rotted out by water or termites and is otherwise disintegrated and no longer able to perform its job. Termite damaged wood stud walls can be easily spotted by all the channels cut into the wood and it disintegrates. This bottom plate repair method to replace rotted studs in your house and stud wall framing is only for use on a non-load bearing wall, unless you build a temporary brace wall for the load bearing wall to hold everything up until you slide in a new wood bottom plate underneath all the studs of the wall. Then you would remove the temporary brace stud wall. PLEASE NOTE: When performing bottom plate replacement, In most areas building code requires that you use pressure treated wood for the bottom plate or you must have a moisture barrier underneath underneath your wood bottom plate if your bottom plate is coming in contact with concrete floors. This prevents nice dry stud walls from becoming water damaged stud walls from rotting wood that would otherwise wick the water upward from the wood bottom plate or waterlogged sill plate, thus causing rotted stud walls. Also using the pressure treated lumber or vapor barrier beneath white wood stud bottom plate protects the bottom plate from rotting in the event of a flood in the kitchen or bathroom. Please note this repair is only for NON Load bearing walls! This is due to the fact that a load bearing wall would require you to erect a temporary stud wall from floor to ceiling a few inches away from the existing stud wall that you want to modify. Then once the new bottom plate is inserted beneath the studs of the load bearing wall, you would then remove the temporary brace wall. But since this video covers only the case of a non-load bearing wall, we are able to just slide in spacer blocks at the bottom of the stud wall to keep our vertical studs in place while we slide in a new wood stud bottom plate to replace the old rotted stud wall bottom plate. You can also replace water damaged and rotted studs in your framing stud wall at this point. In fact our usual repair for termite rotted studs is simply to remove the rotted out stud and repair them with new ones. Keep in mind you don't even need to remove the bottom plate if you just want to remove and repair termite damaged studs from your stud wall, just use your sawzall at the bottom of the studs to cut through the nails. Don't forget as part of this DIY project to repair stud walls, remember to anchor your wood bottom plate to the concrete floor using a Ramset, or Tapcon screws, or concrete anchors. If you are anchoring into a wood sub floor, use some beefy screws or even lag screws. We suggest if you are using screws, that they be galvanized for further protection against corrosion of the fastener from water leaks or floods. After you replace the bottom stud plate, you can then repair the drywall that goes over your previously rotted stud wall.
