Installing Lally Columns and Footings for Girder Beam

I was impressed by fooetr Lally Lock structural column and how easy it was to install, and especially grateful that I did not need to jack up the house to get the column in. Hi, my name is Jay Gaulard and I’m a full time blogger living in Maine. When everything was absolutely perfect, I mixed a few bags of Quikrete Concrete Mix in my wheelbarrow.

I smoothed it out real nice. I also made sure the form was perfectly level. In the photo below, cilumn can see all of the lally columns in a row…the originals and the new ones.

Wood columns shall not be less in nominal size than 4 inches by 4 inches mm by mm and steel columns shall not be less than 3-inch-diameter 76 mm standard pipe or approved equivalent.


Comments J, you continue to impress me with your feats of daring do. I dug it about one and a half feet deep. Just wait until I am done digging out the entire basement. After removing the columns I used the grinder and sledge hammer to flatten out the portion of the columns still embedded in the floor.

But one thing that really stood out to me was noticed when I was upstairs. Once the adjustment screws are tightened, the adjustment plate lifts the column into place for final installation. Those temporary columns on the right came out of there after I was done…they stayed on hold for a future project.

Once again, I measured the actual form to make sure I cut everything correctly.

Have you left anything out? Use the grinder and a sledge hammer to flatten out the column location for easy installation of the replacement. I measured this about 10 times.

colun Tighten the two screws and then fasten the last two screws in the round holes of the plate. The key holes allow one person to install the column by slipping the collumn over pre-installed fasteners and temporarily hanging the column off the beam before permanently installing the fasteners.

I know exactly where the footing is. Oclumn wet the top every day for 7 days. Longer or shorter lengths are available upon request, or you can cut them fooher. The beam of the house was temporarily supported with screw jacks. The supplied Phillips head screws fasten into the two holes. That let made sure the dirt was nice and compact.


I went downstairs and inspected the entire foundation. Then, screw the last two into the threaded holes. Foter was installed on a tilt. I have heard that concrete never stops curing. A few solid raps with a sledgehammer were all I needed to break the column.

Both the kitchen and bathroom above had a fairly new tile floor, and we were sure it would crack if we jacked up the house. I already have cement in my basement but since I am unsure of the thickness of the cement, I will still add the footers like you did.

Let that sucker try to settle. The columns are made in 3-in. When you say you used 7 bags to make that footing, how much was that?

Interested in receiving my posts by email? Building code calls for the footing to be one foot deep by two feet wide.
