We can just see it: it’s Thanksgiving Day, you’ve slaved away on cooking a turkey and countless sides, your crazy uncle is already spewing conspiracy theories, and you’re feeling ready for the day to be over. Then, the worst possible thing happens: you’re on your way into the living room with a beautifully cooked and arranged turkey on a platter when the uneven floors get the best of you … and both you and the bird end up face-first on the ground. 

OK, so maybe this situation is a bit dramatic, but there’s no denying the risk of uneven floors coming Thanksgiving. You’ll be moving around a lot, your in-laws will be analyzing the cleanliness and organization of your home, and kids will be everywhere. You may have asked for a recipe for pumpkin pie, but you’re getting served up a recipe for disaster.

Why do I have uneven floors?

There is a myriad of reasons why you have uneven or unstable floors. Perhaps you bought a house with a bad foundation. Maybe you have a large piano or overflowing bookcase placing too much weight on the floor. Whatever it is, the floor sags, leans, dips, or is otherwise uneven in that one spot — and it poses a safety hazard.

The reason most likely stems from the supporting columns underneath your floor. While that bookcase full of heavy tomes may be a part of the problem, your floor supports likely gave out or experienced some sort of problems before it was placed there. The supporting columns underneath your floor may have rotted, shifted, cracked, or otherwise started to deteriorate and leave you, up on the main level, unsafe.

How can foundation repair help?

The problem, therefore, lies in your foundation and, presumably, not in whatever furniture you’ve placed on the main level of your home. Unstable floors don’t, however, just place you at risk of falling or stubbing a toe — they can lead to other foundation problems such as cracked walls, stuck doors and windows, or unstable chimneys.
