Why Are My Floors Sloping

If you’re living in an older home, you may notice over time that your floors begin to slope and sag. Most of the time sloped floors are caused by defective joists. Over time the weight of your home puts pressure down on the floor joists, and the beams become uneven resulting in sloped and sagging floors.

Settlement issues in your crawl space may also cause your floor to sag. If your crawl space is full of moisture, water can be absorbed into the wood and begin to weaken. As time passes, your home begins to settle on the ground it was built on. The soil underneath your home can become unbalanced due to excessive amounts of moisture or poor surface drainage. As your home settles, the floors may begin to slope.
