If you notice any sinking or sagging floors in your home, it could be a sign that the structural integrity of your crawl space is compromised. Over time, those joists, which comprise the wooden slat roof of your crawl space, may become weak and cause major structural problems.

Floor joists can become weak from:

  • Too much space between support columns
  • Cinderblock columns can cause very weak structural support of your home above
  • Too much moisture in the crawl space causing the wood to rot
  • This works similarly to once dry firewood being over exposed to rain
  • Weak soil or poor footing causing the columns to settle

Although it may seem subtle at first, theses weak floor joists can start to bend or bow and result in sinking floors inside your home, as well as interior wall cracks stemming from the corners of doors or windows.
