The engineering of basement column is advised to check the material of your basement post which can be of wood or steel before mounting as it is designed for providing the support to the weight of the whole building, house or organization etc. These posts really provide the support to tons of weight of your house stories which is built above the basement column, and thus, it is suggested that think twice before moving the basement area or posts.
You need to take the four inch of measurement or diameter which is made up of steel for example which is at the height of eight feet that is typically mounted for supporting the weight of around 20,000 lbs. The taller the basement post, the weaker it is or it becomes due to its susceptibility to the buckling.
The structure or basic focus or principal behind these beams or columns of a basement is considered as the weight of your furniture or people in the house on the joists of floors. The weight from the floor of joists which are then transferred down to the beams or columns of a basement and the walls of the foundation of your house.
The weight to the floor or the building or house is given support by the beam of the basement or the foundation in which columns are fixed. The columns or posts of the basement are rested on the footing pad made up of concrete which is below the floor of the basement. And this pad has transferred the weight to the ground down. It all depends on your design of home or building, as there are chances of other extra point loads coming to your house floors above the basement supports.
