Uneven Floors Explained
Uneven floors in a newer home might raise an alarm, but homeowners in older houses sometimes attribute them to the home’s natural settling or gloss over them as a part of their home’s character. Uneven floors aren’t just unsightly, they’re often strong indicators of a much more pressing matter beneath the home. If your home’s foundation is failing, or if you have an exposed crawl space, joists and beams can warp, swell, and sag. A floor is only as even as its support structure. So, if the joists and beams upon which it rests are sagging, your floor will too.
