Water drainage damage and moisture issues in a crawl space can cause an issue such as sagging floors. Getting ahead of the curb and repairing sagging floors won’t be necessary if you conduct repairs on your crawl space first. We’re going to go over some of the resulting sagging floor issues that can occur from issues in the crawl space.
There are a few components to break down when it comes to identify the sagging floor issues in your home. It’s important to tak a good look at floor joists potentially dipping between the supports of the foundation wall and the main beam between existing columns.
Measurements can then be taken to identify the exact area that needs to be treated. Going underneath the crawl space can help you find where the floor joists are sagging and to what extent. If a group of floor joists are sagging in the crawl space, that’s your indicator to conduct crawl space repairs and make sure there are no moisture issues or water drainage causing this damage.
