Lifting a Sagging Floor

Crawl Space Rendering in Basement

If your home rests on a crawl space and has saggy floors, you might have serious issues. You’ve likely got wood rot caused by moisture, possibly creating structural deterioration in the joists below your floor. Don’t fret – AquaGuard Solutions explains what the problem could be and how to solve it.

The Down-Low on a Sagging Floor
•Vented crawl spaces can succumb to moisture build-up and groundwater seepage, as all untreated crawl spaces in humid Georgia inevitably will.
•Formerly dry, sturdy floor joists supporting your floors can dampen, soften and sag, just like fire logs left outside in the rain. Serious foundation or structural damage occurs as floor joists weaken. The concrete or metal columns stabilizing the joists now have nothing firm to support.
• Hire a pro at the first sign of soft spots, sags and cupping in your floor. They will assess the conditions in your crawl space to see if drainage, encapsulation, dehumidification and/or more structural support is needed.
