Can you see or feel dips in your floors? Do objects roll away from you if you set them down or drop them? This is a pretty good sign that your floors have begun to slope! Alone it may not be that big of an issue. Likely more of an annoyance than anything. Unfortunately, sloping floors are a good indicator that your home or business may be experiencing foundation problems. Sloping floors occur when a foundation begins to sink or settle unevenly. Foundation settlement, or the downward movement of a structure, occurs when:

  • The soil is not strong enough and not capable of bearing the weight of the structure
  • Soil was not compacted before the structure is built
  • Moisture levels in the soil have changed causing expansion or contraction
