Why It’s Important To Call a Professional to Level Your Sagging Floors Southwest Marietta, GA

Sagging floors are common in homes in the Atlanta area, especially in older homes built over a crawlspace. We can reassure homeowners that the problem can be fixed in no time, but it is not a DIY job to attempt yourself.

Why Do Floors Sag?

Floors can sag for a variety of reasons, but the most common reason for floors sagging that are built over a crawlspace is a lack of a solid foundation. The floors may have been perfectly fine for years; but over time, the structure can weaken or even crack.

A sagging floor won’t get better by itself, but it will almost certainly worsen over time. Uneven floors give an undesirable look and feel to the home. It could also be a sign of a serious structural issue that can lead to the loss of your floor and cause damage to your home’s foundation.

How Are Sagging Floors Fixed?

We can add 6″ steel leveling beams to bring everything level. If existing joints have weakened or cracked, they are reinforced. Joists that are broken can also be fixed by splicing them and reinforcing them to create a sound structure for the floor.

Hydraulic floor jacks are used to raise sagging areas to bring the floor back to its original level. Precast engineered supplemental footers can be used to add extra support where the floor lacks a solid foundation over a crawlspace. These footers are 6 inches thick and can be 24″ round or 18″ square footers. These footers are placed on poured concrete footings to create a strong and stable structure that can last a lifetime.

Why Call an Experienced Professional?

An inexperienced person may be able to lift your floor with a hydraulic jack, making it appear level. But this doesn’t fix the underlying problem. Moving the floor without the correct reinforcements can cause even more damage to the joists. Hydraulic jacks aren’t designed to be permanent solutions, either; they lack a solid footing and can come out of place, especially in the case of extreme weather.

The last thing you want is to make the problem worse.

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.
