What You Need to Know About Sagging Basements

Your home’s basement is the foundation of your home’s structural support. Bearing the weight of the rooms above means damage and decay can significantly impact your home and your safety. A sagging basement is a good indicator that there is a problem that needs to be addressed quickly. 

Inadequate support, decay due to mold and water issues, or sinking because of soil settlement can all compromise your basement.

What To Do If You Have A Sagging Basement

There are a variety of ways we can help repair sagging basement floors. Read more about some common solutions below and give us a call for a custom consultation!

Pier and Beam Support

This method is used for more significant sagging issues. It involves installing supports, such as steel piers or beams, underneath the sagging floor. These supports are anchored into the ground and used to lift and stabilize the floor. This method is often used in situations where the sagging is due to foundation settlement or soil issues.

Subfloor Reinforcement

This involves reinforcing the subfloor from below, often by adding additional joists or beams. This method can also include the installation of “sister” joists, which are new joists installed alongside the existing ones to provide additional support.

Basement Dehumidifier System

A basement dehumidifier system is a robust solution designed to specifically address the high humidity levels often found in basements. These systems are more powerful than standard room dehumidifiers and are engineered to work efficiently in the cooler temperatures commonly found in basements.

Interior Basement Waterproofing System

An Interior Basement Waterproofing System is a comprehensive solution designed to effectively manage and prevent water seepage in basements. This method is particularly useful when external waterproofing is not feasible due to accessibility or cost concerns. Key components are a drainage system and dehumidification.
