bad floors

In reply to badly deteriorating floors in part of the house,can they be fixed and how? by Donna on May 4th, 2003 11:58 AM [Go to top of thread]

with sloping floors you can either jack them up or take them out and build new. If you jack them then you need footings under the jacks or they will sink in the dirt from the weight. You will also need to check for wood rot and replace any wood that is rotted. The ploblems with house jacking is that the floors are never completely level and it can cause problems in the rest if the house like cracked plaster.
