While you may think that an uneven floor would be obvious, many homeowners don’t notice until they drop something and it rolls all the way to the other side of the room. Short of that happening, common warning signs of uneven floors include separations between the floor and the wall, doors that are difficult to open and close, and sections of the floor feeling bouncy or unsupported. In most cases, these problems are not caused by the floor itself, but rather the foundation and soils below it.
The main causes of uneven floors are settling concrete slabs, foundation heave, and failing crawl space joists. If the floor in question is above your crawl space, we will provide additional support using crawl space support jacks, which will raise and level the floor. If the issue is with your foundation, foundation piers can be installed to restore your floor to its original position and stabilize it.
