Telepost adjustment


Hey guys,

I've seen somewhere that telepost adjust has seasons or particular times of the year where you should not touch them. I have two that need adjustment.... Maybe half an inch to three quarters. We've had a rocky winter... Plus 5 to minus 30 degree Celsius within two days so wondering if i should wait until a specific time to adjust.

Thanks guys

Guessing you mean a lally column.
With the proper footing there should never be a need to adjust them.
If someone just set them on top of the slab with no footing there always going to be an issue.

Your post is vague and makes it difficult to respond to. First off, a telepost is not a well defined term, so I am not clear what you have. I also cannot tell why you think the posts need to be adjusted. Not all posts are adjustable, not all posts are intended for permanent installation, and sometimes the posts are installed in such a way as to make adjustment impossible. If you post some pictures, and describe exactly what it is you are trying to achieve, and why you think you need to do it, you may get a more on point response.

Ok. Here we are. Look closely at the top of the post. To the right, the previous homeowner made a wall directly under the rimjoist. Almost directly on top of the post is my kitchen and there is a noticeable bump. I know i will have to move the wall to let the rimjoist get down half an inch to an inch.

How would you guys go about fixing this bump. We're not talking 3 inches here either...

Somethings really wrong with that whole set up.
Back that srew off and see if the beam drops enough to level the floor.
The support to hold that beam up should have been inside the wall on the right all the way from the bottom of the beam to the bottom plate with 4, 2 X 4's.
Interesting wiring job.

That's the kind of post that I tell my clients to replace.
