Sagging Floors Southwest Marietta, GA

familyMany people like the appeal of an older home – the charm, the character, and the history often draw buyers in. There are even certain “quirks” of older homes that people often adore. However, some of these quirks can actually negatively impact the home’s safety and value and should not be ignored. Sagging floors are one of the most common issues with older homes, and they are caused by sagging floor joists and sinking foundations. Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs can help restore the integrity of an older home so that it is a safe and foundationally solid structure.

Newly constructed homes have flat, level floors, and these floors are intended to remain flat. When sagging occurs, it is an indication that something has gone wrong. At Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs, our experienced contractors can level the floors of your older home and bring the necessary support back to your structure. Most older homes were constructed over a crawlspace, and this presents issues that most homes built on a solid basement do not have. There are many new standards in place today when constructing new homes that simply were not in place 40+ years ago. A lack of a solid foundation for the floor joists to rest upon was not fully understood, and, therefore, has contributed to many older homes having major settling problems and issues with sagging floors. Another common cause of sagging floors in older homes with a crawl space foundation is that the floor joists extend across the width of the house and are supported by a central beam. This central beam loses its support over time under the weight of the house structure, people, and furnishings.

Fortunately, most sagging floors can be restored so that a home is level and secure. Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs provides experienced foundation repair to restore sagging floors quickly and affordably. If a home has sagging floors that are caused by sinking foundation walls, we can permanently raise and stabilize the walls with steel piers. If the problem is caused by rotted or weakened support joists and posts, the home can be raised using hydraulic floor jacks to bring the floor to a level position. The joists can then be reinforced or replaced to create a structurally sound floor.

A sagging floor should not be ignored no matter how much character it adds to an older home. The integrity of your home is at stake, and costly and dangerous damage could occur at any time. Contact Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs in Atlanta for a free estimate of what it would cost to bring your sagging floors back to a solid position. We have the experience and expertise necessary to bring your older home back to its original life.

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.
