Need help with a sagging bay window!
March 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My husband and I bought our first home in August of last year. The dining area has this lovely bay window that I like very much, but we've noticed some issues around it. Our floor seems to be heaving up about 1.5 to 2 feet from the wall the window is on. There are also cracks forming in the wall under each side of the window. My husband thinks the window is not properly anchored and supported which is causing it to sag and pull away from the house. Has anyone else experienced this? What is the best way to go about fixing it? There are also three windows in the basement right below this bay window. I'll mention as well that I have no desire to get rid of the bay window. Please help!
