Sagging Floor Repair
Call today to get a free estimate
A crawl space is responsible for a large portion of a home including support structure for the entire first floor. This support structure consists of a series of floor joists and beams that can be seriously affected by high levels of humidity and excess moisture. When the floor joists are exposed to high levels of humidity for extended periods of time, they can begin to sag in the center and are unable to support the floor above. If you've got sagging floors in your home, there is only one way to fix the issue. This consists of encapsulating the crawl space to control the moisture and then installing a series of stabilizers to lift and level the floor. Once the humidity is being controlled and the stabilizers are installed, the joists will no longer sag and the floor above will be flat again.
Problem: Sagging Floors
Sagging floors are a symptom of support beams underneath your home starting to fail. This is caused by mold and woodrot which deteriorate wood frames, floor boards, and wooden supports. Mold and woodrot come from damp, moist air and wet crawl space environments that overtime can begin to break down the materials. This also includes concrete materials which can crack or crumble after many years. The main suspect for sagging floors will be the immediate support structure itself: floor joists- which hold the entire weight of the framework underneath your home.
