What Causes Sloping Floors?

Various issues can cause sloping floors.

Settlement

If your crawl space or slab foundation begins to settle into the soil below, your floors will slope toward the lowest settling section.

Moisture

If moisture builds up inside your crawl space, your wooden joists and support posts can absorb water, leading to rot and mold. This will slowly weaken the joists and posts, causing them to deteriorate and crumble.

Sloping Floor Solutions

Here are a few different solutions for sloping floors.

Crawl space jacks

If your sloping floors are a result of failing crawl space posts, we can use jacks to lift the joists, correct the sloping, and keep your floor stabilized.

Post and pad replacement

We can replace failing or beyond-repair posts and pads inside your crawl space. This work can be completed in a day, causing minimal disturbance to you and your home.

Underpinning

If we determine that your sloping floors are a result of settlement, we can use underpinning to lift and level your foundation.
