Historically, homes were constructed using 2x4 floor joists supported by 4x4 wooden posts resting on rocks or bricks. As construction methods evolved, small concrete pads were introduced for additional support. However, these smaller posts and joists remained in use and, over time, they are prone to bowing or bending in the middle. This shift in the support structure is typically the cause of the sagging floors you might be noticing in your home.
Unfortunately, over time, the wood used in these support structures loses its flexibility and strength. It does not simply bend back into shape. Therefore, our remediation methods typically involve replacing the joists and reconstructing the posts and pads.
Your Repair Strategy
In most instances, we undertake a comprehensive repair strategy, which involves replacement of the old joists and reconstruction of the posts and pads. The process involves:
Assessment: We conduct an in-depth analysis of your foundation to determine the best solution.
Replacement: We replace old, worn-out wooden joists with new, high-quality materials to ensure optimal support.
Reconstruction: We reconstruct the posts and pads, considering the unique characteristics of your property.
Inspection: A final check ensures that all repairs meet our strict standards of quality and safety.
In rare cases, where the subfloor is too compromised or warped, we may need to replace it entirely to ensure a level and stable floor.
