Uneven Floors in Lincoln, Omaha, Sioux City, & Beyond
We Repair Damaged Floors & Other Foundation Problems in Nebraska, Iowa, & Missouri
Is it difficult to open and close doors in your home? If so, you may have uneven floors. While uneven floors may not seem like a big deal, they can often indicate foundation problems. Plus, uneven floors can have a real impact on your home overall.
Uneven floors do more than lower a home's curb appeal. They are also a tripping hazard, reduce property value, and make walking uncomfortable. And while uneven floors may seem obvious to some, many homeowners don't notice until they drop something on the floor and it rolls to the other side of the room. Fortunately, there are a few telltale signs that you may have uneven floors:
- Separations between the floor & the wall
- Doors that are difficult to open & close
- Sections of floors that feel bouncy & unsupported
- Floors that sag towards the middle of the house
- Cracks in your floor
- Rot & mold in your crawl space

Causes of Uneven Floors
While some foundation problems usually cause uneven floors, they are not the only culprit. There are a variety of explanations for your uneven, bouncy floors, including structural damage, foundation heave, water damage, and foundation settlement.
The primary cause of uneven floors is poor structural design. Whether there is a faulty foundation design or the foundation weakened over time, the result can be warped walls and floors.
Another common cause of uneven floors is foundation water damage. Moisture issues can stem from leaky gutters, foundation heave, or runoff from your rooftop. This water can seep into the subflooring, causing floors to warp, sink, and become uneven.
Over time, soil movement can lead to floors that shift and sag. Soil generally expands when wet and shrinks when dry. These movements can eventually cause foundation heave and foundation settlement, leading to additional floor problems.
Failing Crawl Space Joists
With the crawl space out of sight, it is out of mind. That means homeowners often don't give that area the tender loving care it requires to stay healthy, structurally sound, and dry. Insufficient, deteriorating, or poorly spaced joists will lead to sagging floors and may even cause them to separate from walls.
Settling Concrete Slabs
As the years go by, concrete cracks, sinks, and settles because of the weak, wet, or poorly compacted load-bearing soil. Settlement can also lead to cracked, settling, and sagging interior floors.
It is widely known that the ground shifts as time goes on. Unfortunately, your foundation can move with it, leading to foundation heave or foundation settlement. The load-bearing soil has a lot to do with this. Regardless, when your foundation moves, your floors can warp.
