In reply to basement lolly col by Guy on March 9th, 2001 10:48 AM [Go to top of thread]

Hi Guy,

Is the column, itself, rusting (about 1 ft. up from the floor)? Or is the beam rusting? WHat's the condition of the beam? Is it steel? What's the span? What does the beam 'rest' on at each end? And what is the beam resting on? (The basement floor, a footing 'inside' the poured floor, or what?)

PS: If they're just rusting on the outside, then you can clean them up and prime and paint them. OR, if it's rusting THROUGH in a spot, you might want to consider replacing them ...
