While uneven floors in a newer home might raise an eyebrow or two, in an older home, you might chalk them up to “natural settling” or even consider them part of the home’s “character.” The thing is, uneven floors aren’t just an eyesore; they can actually indicate a more serious problem lurking below. Because a floor is only as even as the joists and beams it rests upon — and those joists and beams can weaken and sag when they’re in an exposed crawl space or settle if the foundation they rest on is failing.
If you have uneven floors, the best thing to do is to call an expert to inspect your crawl space or foundation. Thanks to the latest technology, crawl spaces and foundations can be shored up and stabilized permanently so that the floors above them can once again be level. Not only does this restore your home’s value, but it also allows you to add value when you improve your home by remodeling a kitchen or a bathroom — two things that you couldn’t do with uneven floors.
