Have you noticed that the floors of your home appear uneven? Unfortunately, one of the most common issues our experts see when it comes to crawl spaces is sagging floors. When the support beams of your home are exposed to moisture in the crawl space, these issues tend to arise. Most companies will suggest that you replace the floor beams once this happens which is not only time consuming, but it is also incredibly expensive. Our team at American Eagle Professional Services can fix your sagging floors permanently for a reasonable cost. We use a patented floor jacking system to raise and support your support beams right where they are sinking.(410) 263-9682
Sagging floors are caused by high humidity in your crawl space. Even when your floors don’t appear uneven, it is likely that they are sagging. Excess moisture in your crawl space saturates the wooden beams supporting your home, causing them to weaken and sag.
Sagging floors in your home may be hard to spot. Our experts recommend a simple test to see if your floors are uneven. By placing a marble or pencil on the floor you can test to see if you have sagging floors by checking to see if the object roles away in any direction.
Our team at American Eagle Professional Services uses a patented system of crawl space support jacks which are designed to withstand the weight of an entire home. Installed directly into your crawl space area, these support jacks are placed methodically to support the beams that are sagging. Once installed the support jacks are raised to level your home and to permanently support and even out your uneven floors.
It is important to note that having crawl space supports installed will not completely solve the issue. Often, we will recommend a crawl space encapsulation system along with crawl space supports to stop any other beams from becoming damaged.
