I've been working on a house in New Orleans off and on for 5 yrs., and just recently my client informed me that all the floor boards from the front of the house to roughly 10 ' back are cupping across the whole front of the house.
It' s a raised (4') home built in 1830.There is batt insulation underneath held in by chicken wire, with about a 1" gap between the insulation & the floor. No subfloor. There is no water intrusion from any other source. The batts are bone dry.
This seems to have occurred over a 3 month period, which coincides with the duct work being re-done in the attic. I've had the HVAC guys come out with moisture meters, and they're telling me that the relative humidity in the house is 60%. We checked all the joints, and everything seems to be tight.
They have no idea what's causing this, nor do I. Any thoughts, or ideas?
