Floor Sloping and Uneven Floor Repair

Sloping or Uneven Floor Repair

sloping uneven floor repairSloping and uneven floors can go undetected for many years until other foundation issues arise. If you suspect you have sloping or uneven floors, get a marble or ball to see if it rolls down the floor. If it rolls, then this can be a good indicator that you have a settling or sinking foundation. Usually, sloping and uneven floors are accompanied by other foundation problems such as:

  • Misaligned windows and doors
  • Wall cracks
  • Floor cracks
  • Tile cracks
  • Ceiling cracks
  • Sticking doors and windows
  • Crumbling, chipping or flaking foundation
  • Wet, damp basement
  • Garage column cracks
  • Shifting or moving foundation
  • Brick and masonry problems
  • Bowing walls

If you have any of these signs including sloping or uneven floors, then contact Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Service today. Sloping and uneven floors are signs that your home has weak structural support. If you ignore these warning signs, you may face costly repairs and major foundation damage.

So what causes sloping or uneven floors? Settling is the common cause of sloping and uneven floors. As the soil shifts and moves, it damages the foundation and overall structure of your home. The leading cause of soil-related issues are due to:

  • Poorly compacted soils: Homes or buildings built on poorly compacted soil can lead to settling.
  • Inconsistent moisture levels in the soil: Changes in the moisture level beneath the foundation can affect the soil. Too much water creates pressure against the foundation walls. Not enough water causes the soil to shrink and become weak.
  • Weak bearing soils: Soil beneath and around your home becomes weak and unable to support the structure’s weight.

We can assess your home and determine the source of your foundation issues for homes in the Pittsburgh, PA area.
