I've recently notice a weak spot in the corner of one of my rooms. I reside is a two-story home. There is carpet covering the existing floor. What can I do to strength this section of the floor?When I walk on this section it's very weak it feels like I may fall through the floor. Can you help me? L.J.

It sounds like you have a floor joist problem. They hold the floor up. My thoughts are that the joist has rotted out. Common problem especially in corners. Needs to be repaired before the next one goes also. Good Luck
