Bouncy Floors

Your home’s floors should be firm and steady, but if you feel an unnerving bounce as you walk, there’s likely a bigger problem at hand.  

This issue shouldn’t be dismissed as simply a characteristic of an older home or a minor inconvenience. Bouncy floors signify possible structural defects demanding immediate attention. 

At Foundation Repair of Western Colorado, we commit to correcting these structural issues for homeowners. Our extensive crawl space repair services target the root causes of sagging floors to prevent further damage. 

What Are Bouncy Floors? 

Bouncy floors are observed as a distinct sinking or rebounding when walked upon. This problem is usually more pronounced in upper-level floors supported by a crawl space below. 

This happens when floor joists and the structures that support them are inadequate in strength or stability, causing a noticeable dip with applied pressure. Additional signs that your home is affected by bouncy floors include: 

Though bouncy floors may initially appear as a minor annoyance, they often indicate deeper structural issues that will worsen without proper intervention. It’s crucial to contact a crawl space repair expert like Foundation Repair of Western Colorado at the first indication of a problem. 

Why Your Home Has Bouncy Floors 

Comprehending the issue of bouncy floors requires a closer examination of contributing factors. The common culprits for bouncy floors encompass: 

  • Moisture in the Crawl Space: Excessive dampness leads to wooden supports soaking up moisture, resulting in decay and loss of structural integrity.  
  • Pests Beneath Your Home: Termites and other pests feed on wood, damaging the subfloor’s strength and stability. 
  • Joist Spacing Discrepancies: Incorrect spacing of floor joists can result in insufficient floor support. 
  • Mistakes in Installation: Poor installation practices can lead to bouncy floors as time goes on. 
  • Foundation Issues: Shifts or settling in the foundation can misalign floors, causing them to bounce. 
  • Aging of the Home: The natural aging process can also play a role in the bounce felt in floors. 

Our specialists at Foundation Repair of Western Colorado assess these elements when examining bouncy floors, ensuring that the crawl space is thoroughly reinforced to support the structure above.
