Foundation Experts Warn of Issues With Uneven or Sloping Floors In California
LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction Inc., (http://julianconstruction.com/), a foundation repair and foundation construction specialist company in Southern California, has done some research into the issue of sloping, uneven floors in Southern California. The company found serious possibilities of risk involved where homes had uneven floors. The company urged homeowners toward increased awareness on the dangers and remedies of uneven floors in a home.
The company found that homes with sloping or uneven floors had a number of different causes. Older homes were found more frequently affected. Poorly designed foundation work was found to be one of the major causes. Another common factor found was foundation settlement occurring over a long period of time. Moisture and mold were found to affect homes as well, causing uneven flooring. The company stressed that the problems presented can not only be varied in nature but can often lead to more serious problems later if not addressed.
Julian De La Torre, founder and owner of Julian Construction Inc., stated: “An uneven floor is a big warning light. It’s not the floor that’s the problem, it’s the foundation problems unseen beneath it that cause the slope. If the foundation is damaged, and if it isn’t noticed early, then the repair is much more costly potentially. To prevent that and to ensure the safety of all of a building’s occupants, we urge homeowners to get an inspection done of a foundation with sloping floors to see if floor leveling is needed.”
