Tar Heel Tip of the Week: Signs of Sagging Floors

Monday, March 23rd, 2015 by Jaimie Hooker

How will you know if you have sagging floors?

  • Sloping floors, sometimes creating a gap between the floor and interior walls.
  • Cracking in the interior walls and gaps around door frames, caused by a wall sinking along with the floor.
  • Doors that stick or have been planned in order to close.
  • Gaps between existing columns and girders in the crawl space or basement.
  • Shimming between existing columns and girders in the crawl space or basement (a sign of past repair attempts)
  • Evidence of moisture, wood rot, and compression of the floor joists in the crawl space or basement.
