Have you been seeing gaps between your walls and floors? These gaps in your structure could be an indication of foundation issues in your crawl space. Our foundation and crawl space repair contractors will analyze the reason for the gaps and provide you with various solutions. It's essential to comprehend what is causing your wall and floor gaps. Here are a few reasons.
Foundation settlement is usually the number one cause behind floor and wall gaping. As your foundation settles, it can pull the floor from the walls and ceiling because there is insufficient support in your crawl space. Foundation settlement is one of the causes behind many home issues and can be caused by:
Weak floor joists are another foundation issue that can cause floor and wall gaps. Floor joists start to sag when there is excessive humidity in your crawl space or when the joists are overspanned. If there is excessive moisture, the wooden joists will start to rot and wind up lopsided. As your floor joists sag, they can drag your floor down and pull it from the wall, bringing about substantial gaps.
There are foundation repair solutions available if your floor and wall gaps are caused by foundation issues. Helical piers can be screwed into the ground underneath your foundation to stop settlement and level out your foundation. Sistering joists enhances sagging floor joists by reinforcing the current joists inside your crawl space. You can also repair or replace the girder underneath your floor.
