Do the Floors above your crawlspace seem bouncy, soft, or possibly unlevel?

Here are some tips to help you identify if you have this problem!

  • If you have sloping floors or gaps between your floor and interior walls – you have a problem.
  •  If you have cracks in your interior walls and gaps around your door frames – you have a problem.

How to Resolve your Sagging Floors

  • If your doors stick or have been altered (planed) in order to close- you have a problem.
  • If you have shimming between the columns and girders in your crawlspace- you have a problem.

How to Resolve your Sagging Floors

  •  If you have moisture, wood rot, or compression of the floor joists in your crawlspace- you have a problem.

Why are you having these problems?

  • The existing columns in your crawlspace may be spaced too far apart. If the columns are too separated, your home’s floor will begin to sag in-between them.
  • The moisture and humidity in your crawlspace begins to eat away at the wooden beams that are supporting your floors. This wood becomes weakened by the water, causing the soft beam to no longer support your floor.
  • Your existing columns may begin to settle themselves. When this occurs, the girder sags, causing your floors to sag.

How to Resolve your Sagging Floors

 

Concrete columns- pouring concrete columns is time consuming. Also, the concrete is not adjustable; therefore, once the columns settle into the poor foundation soil under your home, you are back to having sagging floors.

Additional Shimming- shims are pushed between the existing column and the girder. These break easily and you will find yourself constantly repairing the damages time after time.
