installing columns


I was wondering how much you usually have to jack up the the porch beam to slide columns in. I cut columns tight (of course) so the weight will help hold. I always worry about jacking up too much and causing damage to framing, roofing (metal), soffit/fascia, something.....

I always jacked up no more than 1/2 inch. If the column is the right length it will go with no problem.
