A sloping floor could be a sign of foundation problems. An uneven floor could be caused by movement in the foundation walls.
Some settling in a home is to be expected and shouldn’t be a cause for alarm, however, it is always a good idea to have a foundation repair expert check your home for any major problems.
You may notice a slight sway to the floor or furniture begins to lean. You may also notice door not closing correctly or floors squeaking that never did before.
Sometimes it is easy to see that your floor is uneven, but other times it can be subtle. An easy way to check if your floor is stable is to place a ball in the corners of the room and see if it rolls to a low spot.
An uneven floor can be frustrating and dangerous, in addition to being a big red flag that there is a foundation issue occurring.
