no sub-flooring with ceramic tiles

We purchased a home 4 years ago and now that we are changing things in the basement ..we discovered large supports from floor to ceiling (the kind you hand crank to expand them). We asked our neighbor if they new who did the ceramic floor in this house and they stated it was the owners (not proffesionals) They continued to tell us that after the previous owner layed the ceramic flooring (all through out the first floor) they realized the flooing was sinking--which explains the supports in our basement. How dangerous is this?

I would suggest getting a contractor out there to evaluate what is going on. Sounds like improper footings are under the beam or you may have some other issues that are creating this "sinking" dilema.

Is this dangerous...hard to say but only a professional should look at it before you do anything else. You may want to contact a General Contractor for some insight as to what is happening.

Hope this helps!
