I am needing to know the size of beams I will need to replace the main support beams that run vertical under the house and how to do it? My husband is very experienced in concrete and woodworking so just some detailed info would be great.

As MustangMike mentioned, more information is necessary; specifically measure the span from exterior wall to the center support (girder) and let us know if it is a one or two story house (and if it is a two-story, if the 2nd floor has a bearing wall that transfers a load down to the girder you are replacing, also mention what the use of the rooms are.
