Why Are My Floors Sloping
Older model homes experience sloping floors as time goes on. Saggy and sloped floors are most often caused by defective floor joists. Your house a great deal of weight on these floor joists, and the beams will eventually settle unevenly, causing your floors to sag.
Your floor may also start to sag if your crawl space is experiencing settlement problems. Too much moisture in your crawl space can result in water being soaked into the wood and causing wood rot. As time goes on, your home will start to settle into the soil on which it was built. The soil underneath your home may start to become uneven because of extreme humidity or insufficient drainage on the earth’s surface. This settlement means that your floors will slowly start to sag and slope.
