Given the fact that Los Angeles is situated in a seismically active zone, and because many of the homes are constructed on expansive soil, which tends to shrink and swell, your foundation can suffer damage in the forms of cracks or sloped floors. At LA Structural we strive to deliver the best floor leveling Los Angeles has to offer.
In addition, if your property does not have proper drainage, the excess water will soak readily into the expansive soil which can cause the settlement. Chances are that every time the foundation rises or sinks, it may not lie evenly. So where does this leave you?
Well, it can leave you with a vulnerable and damaged foundation. And one of the outcomes of a damaged foundation is uneven or sloping floors. If your home has uneven or sloping floors, it is best that you get your property inspected and repaired as soon as possible. You will need the services of Los Angeles floor leveling experts such as LA Structural to help you address your problem of sloping floors.
Uneven floors or sloping floors are typically caused by a damaged foundation. Floors with a very slight slope should not really be the cause for much concern – unless it gets worse. On the other hand, if the sloping of your floors is very apparent, – it could be indicative of foundation damage. If left unaddressed, the issue could also impact the structural integrity of your home or building.
The situation that should alarm you is when your floors are extremely uneven or display drastic sloping. Here again, it is best to get your foundation inspected by our licensed foundation inspectors immediately. You could have a drainage problem that might have impacted your foundation – constant swell and shrinkage can cause the foundation to shift or raise and become unstable.
If your floors are uneven and if you suspect foundation damage, we highly recommend that you get your floors and foundation inspected as soon as possible. Home repairs are best done while the issues are still small. If left unaddressed, the problem could get worse and you may end up paying high repair costs down the line.
