Sagging Floors

Your floors should be strong and not sag or dip when walked on. Sagging floors indicate structural problems that require professional solutions to prevent additional damage. This issue is often associated with the crawl space. When moisture and pests begin to affect the living area, it’s crucial to take action. 

Indiana Foundation Service offers complete crawl space repair solutions with SettleStop™ IntelliJack™ Crawl Space Jacks. These jacks provide long-lasting support for floor joists and floors, ensuring a solid foundation for your home. 

What Are Sagging Floors? 

Sagging floors occur when the floor joists underneath the subfloor bend or twist, causing the floors to slope, slant, or dip downward. This compromises the structural integrity of your home and can lead to issues such as creaking noises, tripping hazards, rattling furniture, and an unpleasant visual appearance. 

Other signs of crawl space damage include: 

In extreme cases, sagging floors can detach from the supporting wall or beam. Addressing sagging floors early with professional intervention is essential to prevent further damage.

Promptly addressing the root causes of sagging floors with professional assistance is crucial to effectively tackling the problem. 

Can You Fix Sagging Floors? 

Yes, but keep in mind that venturing into a crawl space to fix it on your own can be hazardous, so it’s best to leave repairs to the pros with the proper protective gear and expertise. Professionals fix sagging floors ƒusing high-quality materials. DIY solutions like sistering new boards or adding temporary jacks prove ineffective.  

Addressing sagging floors properly with a whole-home solution is crucial for lasting results. At Indiana Foundation Service, we offer specialized solutions to effectively address sagging floors, preventing further issues and ensuring a safe and stable home.
