Why Your Floors Are Uneven
Uneven floors could be a sign that your home’s structural integrity is at risk. Although it may not seem like a big deal, this could be an indication that your floors aren’t receiving the support they require.
Moisture is a major factor in floor support health. Moisture issues are common in spaces below ground, such as crawl spaces and basements. If enough moisture is allowed to get into these spaces, it can lead to water damage, wood rot and mold, as well as compromised floor support joists. USS offers many floor support services in Huntsville including sagging and uneven floor repair.
Wood-eating insects can also be attracted to moisture. They will find their way into your crawl space or basement and start to nest. They will stay close to moisture sources and feed on your support beams, joists, and other supports.
The soil that settles beneath your home can cause your foundation to shift. This can lead to a variety of problems in your house, including the possibility for walls or support beams being pulled apart or compressed. The movement can cause uneven floors and other structural issues. Our floor support services team in Huntsville will have to repair the foundation issues in order to level the floors.
