Do Your Floors Slope or Sag? Southwest Marietta, GA
Man worker with a bubble level checking if the floor is level.

Floors that slope or sag in a home with a crawl space indicates a structural problem. It is important to the safety and structural integrity of your home that this issue is addressed in a timely manner. Check your home for the following:

  • Crawl space columns are tilting or showing signs of sinking.
  • There may be moist or rotting wood under the house.
  • There may be cracks in the home’s drywall.
  • Doors and windows may have trouble opening or closing smoothly.

There are three primary reasons that homes with crawl spaces experience a structural sag.

Too Far Apart

When a home is built with a crawl space, columns of cinder block, brick, rocks and sometimes wood are located throughout the area under the structure. Designed to support the weight of the building above, these posts can run into trouble if the weight on them is too much or they are positioned too far apart.

When the columns are too far apart, the beams and girders will sag as they become overcome with too much weight for their load tolerance. This produces a sag in the flooring.

Rot And Mold

Crawl spaces collect moisture and humidity. This creates ideal conditions for rot and mold to thrive in the wood used to construct the home. Many crawl spaces are not sealed properly to prevent this. The rot-weakened joists, girders and posts then fail and the structure’s integrity is compromised. In time, the flooring will become soft with a bounce to it and eventually collapse.

Columns Settle

All houses settle over time but if the footings under the posts are not sufficient enough to prevent extreme settling, the structure’s integrity will be compromised. The soil the home’s posts depend on may not have been strong or solid enough to support the weight placed upon it. This causes the columns to sink. Gaps will appear between the top of the post and the bottom of the girder until the girder, unable to hold all that weight, sags.

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.
