Why Floors Sag

A thousand words may be necessary to describe a single photo. The House Whisperer inspector took this photo which prompted 7 comments in the inspection report:

  • A floor joist was over-notched to accommodate a drain pipe from an addition... the floor will sag.
  • The tile floor above had running cracks that are typically due to floor sag.
  • The floor support may not perform well during an earthquake.
  • The black plastic drain/waste pipe wasn't properly supported.
  • The pipe was manufactured by Spartan Plastics between 1984-1990, which had a history of cracking and failure. 
  • The parallel copper water pipe isn’t properly supported which can cause water leakage.
  • The electrical cable lying on the ground is subject to mechanical damage should be secured to floor joists.
