What Causes Drooping or Creaking Floors?

If you’ve noticed a floor in your home has started drooping or sagging, or you have spots that creak when you walk across them, you may have underlying structural damage. Often, it can result from issues within the crawl space, such as:

  • Deteriorating crawl space joists or wooden support beams due to age or presence of moisture
  • Inadequate number of crawl space joists
  • Expansive or poor quality soil, causing the foundation to shift and settle
