Floor Joists Repair
Floor joists repair is a job best left to the professionals. Many homeowners that attempt floor joist repairs as a do-it-yourself project quickly realize they may be in over their heads. Usually, rotten floor joists are a result of moisture damage, and moisture can attract termites and other pests.
If a floor joist has been compromised due to termite damage, then that means the termites have eaten the wood to the point where the joist is not strong enough. This can compromise the structural integrity of your home and needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
The problem with floor joists is that the longer a house sits with problems, the more structural damage will occur. Settling, cracks in the walls and foundation and doors being hard to shut and close are all strong hints to have your floor joists and other structural supports inspected by a home professional. Bowing and sagging floors are good reason to suspect a problem with the floor joists.
