Help

Hi guys,

I recently went into my cold room in the basement which I generally never go to and found the top like this.

I bought this one 2 years ago from another person.

Is this an issue? Does insurance cover this?

This home is roughly 3 years old.

Thanks

Your insurance deductible would be more than the cost to repair the sub floor

Just get another piece of wood and reinforce the damaged area

Hi, thanks for your reply.

This is underneath my doorstep, and a bunch of stones seem to be above it.

So like outside your doorstep you have stones?? Or underneath the doorstep and above the subfloor you have stones?

Ideally if you can flatten it out and out another piece of OSB or plywood over and screw it in, should work, but it's weird that something like that would even happen. Is this doorstep going to the outdoors? Seems to be in a weird spot too for the doorstep. If that's to the outdoors, should be insulated as you are losing heat there......

Hi,

Please see the attached for the pic, I am guessing the cold room is underneath the doorsteps. Or it could be under the stones there as i see stones on the top.

-1 for awful title. Do what Gee suggested and just screw some wood to reinforce.
