Why Your Floors Are Uneven
Uneven floors can indicate significant changes in the structural integrity and strength of your home. It is not a trivial problem, and it should be fixed before it gets any worse. Uneven floors can happen for many reasons. The main reason your floors may become uneven is because they don’t have the support that they need to lay straight like they used to.
Moisture problems in crawl spaces or basements can have an enormous impact on your floors. Wood rot or mold can affect the support joists that hold your floor up if you end up with too much moisture in your crawl space or basement.
Wood-eating insects can easily get into homes through crawl spaces or basements. They will find moisture sources for their nests and start feeding on the floor’s support beams or joists.
Settling soils under your home’s foundation can cause movement of your entire home’s structure from top to bottom. This movement may result in support beams and walls shifting which can also produce uneven floors. It is important to address the root of the problem, soil and foundation settlement, with foundation repair before your floors can be leveled again.
