Hi all, I've got a weird lally column issue going on and I've got a video. After removing the bottom of a finished basement wall after the worst flooding in RI for about 500 years I found this.
I found a lally column bolted right next to my basement wall resting on a particle board subfloor. That's right, nothing underneath, just resting on the subfloor. There isn't much weight on it because I can push my nail puller underneath the sopping wet particleboard pretty easily. There is also no column at the other side of the beam.
My question is, can I just shore it up with some new wood or more preferably something more flood resistant like concrete blocks? If that's not a good idea maybe I can just bolt in an adjustable.
Thanks for your time!
