Why Are My Floors Sagging? Southwest Marietta, GA

If you have noticed that your floors are sagging, it’s essential to address the issue as soon as possible. Not only is it unattractive, but it may also be unsafe if checked. There are several reasons why your floors may be sagging, so it’s crucial to identify the cause to rectify the problem. The professionals at Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs routinely encounter Atlanta-area homes with sagging floors, particularly in homes built over a crawlspace.

Don’t keep putting up with unsafe slanting floors, sticking doors that become unusable or other signs of floor instability. Our team can offer solutions for leveling your floors to save the home and prevent further damage and eventual destruction of the house. In addition, repairs now could save you higher costs for more significant problems later. Here are some common reasons for sagging floors in a home.

Foundation Issues

A weak or damaged foundation is one of the primary reasons for sagging floors. If so, immediately contact a foundation repair expert at Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs. They can examine the foundation and determine the most effective way to fix the issue. We have several methods of repair to level and secure shifting foundations.


The age of your house may also be a reason for sagging floors. The foundation may settle and shift as a home ages, leading to sagging floors. Reinforcing the foundation or adding additional support may be necessary to prevent further damage.

Faulty Construction

In some instances, the construction of the house may be the cause of sagging floors. If the builder used or installed improper materials incorrectly, your floors may begin to sag over time. Working with a reputable builder is critical to ensuring everything is done correctly.

Water Damage

Water damage is another culprit in causing sagging floors. It can weaken the structure of your house, including the floors. Addressing any water damage immediately is crucial to preventing further damage to your home.

Weight and Wear

Lastly, the weight of heavy furniture or appliances can also cause sagging floors over time. Distributing the weight evenly throughout your home is essential, particularly on upper floors. Moving furniture or appliances may be necessary to prevent further damage to your floors.

Atlanta Sagging Floor Repair

In conclusion, there are various reasons why your floors may be sagging, and it’s critical to identify the cause to prevent further damage to your home. If you’ve noticed sagging floors, contact a professional to examine your home and determine the best solution.

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.

Penelope Greensmith

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.
