Sagging Crawl Space Problems

Causes & Repair Solutions For Sinking, Sagging Crawl Spaces

The Problem:Failing Floor Joint Mississippi

Your crawl space is experiencing structural problems that are causing it to sink or sag in the middle.

What's Happening:

Crawl spaces experience structural sagging for these three primary reasons:

  • Support Columns Spaced Too Far Apart
  • Rot-Weakened Joists, Girders, Posts
  • Columns Settling Due To Weak Soil/Poor Footings

A floor joist shows signs of compression due to the heavy weight of the home -- and too few crawl space supports.

Inadequate crawl space support leads to sinking floors, uneven floors, and damage to your structure.

Crawl space jack posts provide a fast, permanent, warrantied solution to this problem. They're a great option for homeowners investing in home repairs.

Telltale Signs:

  • Tilting or sinking crawl space supports
  • Moist, rotting wood
  • Sagging, sloping, or uneven floors upstairs
  • Cracks in interior drywall
  • Door & window frames skewed and/or unlevel
