Ok my main support beam is 23 feet long resting on the outside foundations on the east and west side of the house then also on a 2 foot by 2 foot pier in the center of the basement. A 43 inch section was cut out right next to the center pier so it is supported by the pier and then where the cut was made there is a steel post. Is there a way to connect the beam? should I add more posts? The short part of the beam that is held up by the post and foundation sags about an inch in comparison to the rest of the beam/floor. My house is 1 1/2 story and has a larger door way right above the beam from dining room to living room. I think the section was cut out over 30 or 40 years ago. And I never noticed it until we replaced the old furnace since that was right where it was. Any suggestions please!!
