Why are your floors sloping? Let’s investigate the reasons.
Why are my floors sloping?
Your sloped floors might be caused by poor floor installation, yet foundation settlement is usually the purpose for sloped floors. Parts of your home move as your foundation settles unevenly, causing sloped floors. Foundation settlement can happen due to:
- Excessive soil moisture caused by insufficient drainage around the foundation
- Soil that was not sufficiently compacted so it starts to compact under the weight of the foundation
- Soil that isn't strong enough to hold your home's weight
- Overspanned floor joists and girders
Other foundation issues can cause sloped floors like bowing foundation walls, a cracking foundation, or crumbling brick foundation often found in older homes. Call CNT Foundations in Charleston to examine your foundation before considering sloped floor repair, as your sinking foundation may be the main reason for the floors.
How would you be able to settle slanted floors?
A sloped floor that is caused by inappropriate installation can just be torn up and reinstalled. Be that as it may, any indications of foundation settlement or structural problems need to be assessed by a foundation contractor before any definite repair plans are made.
