Bouncy Floors

Stable and firm floors are expected in any home. If there’s a noticeable bounce as you walk, this is a red flag that needs immediate attention. 

Such signs typically indicate deeper structural problems that require urgent repair. 

Foundation Recovery Systems excels in identifying and remedying these issues swiftly. Our crawl space repair services are designed to address the fundamental issues causing saggy floors, avoiding future structural damage.

Why Your Home Has Bouncy Floors 

Pinpointing the cause of bouncy floors is essential for lasting repair. 

Common causes include: 

  • Joists That Are Overstretched: Joists that are set too widely apart or are too long can result in too much flexing. 
  • Inadequate Support: When foundational supports such as beams or posts are incorrectly positioned or have shifted, they become ineffective, leading to bouncy floors. 
  • Weakened Joists: Exposure to moisture, decay, pest infestation, or wear and tear can all weaken wooden joists over time. 
  • Excessive Weight: Heavy household items or appliances can overburden the joists. 
  • Shifts in Foundation: Alterations in the foundation can cause undue strain on the floor’s support structures. 

Repairing bouncy floors typically necessitates crawl space support restoration. Our experts thoroughly investigate these issues when inspecting bouncy floors. 

Can You Fix Bouncy Floors? 

Absolutely, bouncy floors can be repaired. 

Nevertheless, it’s crucial to address this with comprehensive repair strategies rather than temporary fixes. Big box store remedies and DIY projects often fail to solve the fundamental problem and could introduce new risks. 

Thorough repair involves pinpointing and rectifying the root causes of the bounce. Foundation Recovery Systems employs a comprehensive approach to ensure lasting repair. 

Our team conducts in-depth inspections to determine what’s causing your floor’s instability and then crafts specialized strategies to support and potentially elevate your floors back to their original positioning.
