Uneven Floor Repair in Montana and Wyoming

Just as the name implies, uneven floors are floors in your home that slope or appear to sag down. They may also squeak or bounce when you walk over them. Typically, this is a sign that something about your crawl space or foundation isn’t right.

Numerous symptoms can accompany sagging floors, each with a different possible cause, so it’s best to consult the experts for repair options. Yellowstone Structural Systems has years of experience diagnosing and repairing crawl space and foundation problems. Reach out to our team and schedule a free inspection to learn what’s causing your sagging floors.

Why Floors Slope and Sag

The most common causes of uneven floors are unstable soils and failing crawl space joists. Unstable soils will shift and settle over time, and unfortunately, your foundation will shift and settle with them, leading to problems such as uneven floors. Failing crawl space joists will sag as they become too weak to support the weight of your home, causing the floors above them to sag and become uneven as well.

There are many reasons that crawl space joists may fail, such as deterioration caused by excess moisture, improper support, or poor structural design. Whether your uneven floors are caused by unstable soils, excess moisture, or failing crawl space joists, the team at Yellowstone Structural Systems has a solution.

Each of these, or a combination of these, leads to things like foundation settlement, foundation heave, and many other symptoms that happen due to structural problems.
