Sagging Floors

If you live in an old house, you may find that over time the floor may fall a little, causing several problems in the house; from cracked walls to cracked or cracked or laminated tiles or wooden floors. In fact, you can use a hydraulic grid to help you take advantage of the problem of weakening the floor, although remember that it is not an easy or very safe task. Make sure to use all precautions and if you don’t want to risk it, NO.

Considerable care is always to slow down, distribute the load and always listen to the structure. Working slowly is about getting up and doing it a little bit to make sure the structure is slowly getting comfortable in the new position. If you take it too fast, you will have more cracks in the plaster and walls, and even cracked structural members. Make sure to distribute the load, the hydraulic jacks can withstand very heavy loads and make sure that the load is well extended, they will keep the structure stable. Finally, listen to the structure to make sure everything is working perfectly and that you didn’t get up too quickly to destabilize the structure.

First, you need to make sure that the structure is properly assembled before starting the survey. Therefore, securing the grains to the floor joints is the first step. Make sure to use a steel plate under the jack. This is to distribute the load and ensure that the jack does not dig into the wooden beam. Use cross beams to better distribute the load across the floor. Otherwise, the monkey will likely go straight to land. Then the count column is put in place, use steel plates again to make sure that it does not crush the wood fibers.

Use a 1 “thick steel plate to place on top of the jack, so that it is between the counting column and the jack. This helps to transfer the force from the top of the jack to the large column. Place another counting column Next to the one with the jack and adjust it so that it fits perfectly. Make sure the jack is on a stable and safe surface, do not want it to fall, which can cause bodily injury or objects that fall from a sufficient height.

The process of lifting a floor, house or building is repeated, so be prepared, it will take some time and a lot of work. Basically, you raise the grid about 1/8 inch at a time, while extending the count column beside it even further. Use a flat level and keep climbing until the weakness is repaired.

Again, this process is quite difficult and a little dangerous, so don’t try it if you’re not sure. Of course, to build a house you will need a few more hydraulic cavities and enough time, but a weakened floor can be fixed with patience and time and, of course, with the help of your monkey.
