Are You Settling for Sagging Floors? Southwest Marietta, GA
A contractor checking wooden floor level with a leveling instrument.

Sometimes we are forced to wait to do certain upgrades to our homes. For example, you need a new paint job but keep putting it off because it isn’t in the budget. We understand, and lately, things have been tighter than usual. So, if you have a sagging floorboard or an area that has shifted, does it mean big problems?

What Causes My Floor to Sag?

Floors can sag for a few different reasons, and proper repair needs to be done by someone who knows the right fix for the right spot. That starts with determining why the floor is sagging.

  • Poor or Outdated Original Design. When the house was built, there may not be adequate support underneath. This can be a problem with the floor joists or even the subfloor. The problem can also arise if you bring in extra heavy furnishings, such as waterbeds or a pool table.
  • Rotting or Molding Joists Due to Water Damage. If you have a basement or a crawlspace, it needs to be completely waterproof to prevent damage from mold or rot. If the mold is left untreated, it can lead to mold issues inside the home via the walls.
  • Settling of the House. Sometimes, the floors in your home will sag because the house settles into the environment beneath it.

Do I Need to Fix My Sagging Floor?

There are several reasons you need to fix that sagging floor. First, while you may think it is just cosmetic, there is most likely a needed fix for the actual safety of the floor. If there is insufficient support, the floor can fall through, leading to more damage and possible injuries. If things are molding or rotting, they won’t get better without serious intervention. The same goes for water damage. Regarding the house settling, you need a professional to check out the safety of the house and the foundation.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
