Living in a park home often involves a closer relationship with nature, a simpler lifestyle, and a sense of community. Yet, like any other type of dwelling, park homes can present unique challenges, and one of these is excess floor movement.
Excess floor movement or ‘bouncy’ floors can be a source of concern. They are often caused by weakened support structures underneath your park home, which can be due to age, water damage, or soil movement. Here’s what you can do when faced with this issue:
- Identify the Problem: The first step is to accurately identify the problem. If your floor feels soft or bouncy, it’s an indication of underlying issues that need addressing.
- Assess the Damage: Once the problem has been identified, it’s vital to assess the extent of the damage. This can be done by a professional who has experience dealing with park homes and understands the nuances of their construction.
- Repair or Replacement: Depending on the severity of the issue, repairs may involve bolstering the existing structure or completely replacing the affected parts of the floor.
- Preventative Measures: Once repairs are done, it’s crucial to put measures in place to prevent recurrence. This may involve improving ventilation to prevent dampness or reinforcing the ground supports.
