FLOOR FRAMING


DEFLECTING OR SAGGING FLOOR FRAMING


You have a floor area in your home that just isn’t right.  You can tell just by walking across it, and if you strike a level to it, the

difference becomes apparent.   Your sagging floor is likely due to one of four things:



All of these sound troubling, but generally they can be relatively easily corrected. One mistake homeowners often make is to call a contractor out to fix their problem without first consulting with a structural engineer to properly identify and design an economical solution.  We have seen too many failed expensive repairs, where the contractor did not understand the underlying load path, resulting in needless follow on repairs.  Yes, a structural engineer does add some nominal cost to your repair, but in many cases they will save you money by proposing a more economical solution.  This and they will see that the trouble is fixed correctly the first time. Moreover, we work with many framing contractors and know which are honest, capable, and fair in their pricing.   This knowledge alone can save our clients several times our fee and more so in reduced frustration.
