Sloping floors can indicate a serious problem in your home. When you first notice them, you may think that they are just a minor inconvenience. However, a sloping floor is a sign that you need foundation repair. Your foundation is sinking or settling, causing your floors to shift and become uneven. IWP Foundation Repair can help repair your sloping floors with foundation repairs.
Common symptoms of foundation problems often occur in groups because when the foundation of your home is damaged, it can damage to many other parts of your home. The most common cause of a sloping floor is a sinking or settling foundation. Home foundations naturally sink over time due to soil compaction and different moisture levels. However, poor construction can mean your foundation slips even more than usual, causing symptoms of foundation issues such as foundation cracks, mold and mildew, sloping floors, and more. These problems are bad enough on their own, but they are only surface issues. The real problem is an uneven foundation, and that problem must be resolved to see results.
