Cupping Floors? Buckling Floors? Warped Floors?


In general, cupping is caused by a disparity between moisture above and below the floors (i.e. higher moisture below the floors than above the floors).  Unfortunately, cupping is often just one sign of a more serious problem - excessive moisture in the crawl space that could cause serious structural damage to your home, or worse, create mold-related health concerns for you and your family.


There are numerous causes for elevated moisture below the structure and it is important that the situation be diagnosed correctly, if a long-term solution is to be implemented.

GLS Engineering can inspect your hardwood floors and develop a realistic strategy to control moisture and keep your hardwood floors flat year round. No more cupping, buckling or warped floors!
