Sometimes it’s hard to notice uneven, sloped floors. Other times it’s clear as day. You can easily imagine placing a marble or ball at your feet and watching it race to one side of the room. When the slope of your floor is extreme, this typically means you have foundation problems. Specifically, your foundation has settled or sunken unevenly. There are a number of problems that will arise when this happens including floor, wall, and ceiling cracks; wet basements or crawlspaces; and water stains.
When you start to notice these signs, it’s time to contact the professionals. Not only should you contact foundation experts to inspect your foundation and come up with a solution, but once you have ensured that your foundation is sound, you should also contact an expert concrete flooring contractor, like All West Surface Prep. In this situation, we can likely save your cracked, uneven commercial floors. We are able to fill the cracks, prepare the surface, and turn your old commercial concrete floors into a level, durable, and highly-functional piece of art.
Often times uneven floors are the result of a shift in the soil, specifically when:
The Foundational Soil is Weak
: Some soils are not able to bear the weight of a big structure, like a home or industrial facility. This can be because of a natural weakness in the soils or because the soil wasn’t properly compacted before starting construction.
The Moisture Level of the Soil is off
: When there is too much moisture underneath or around the foundation this can directly affect the foundation walls, leading to water stains and water damage. When the foundation area is too dry, the soil can shrink and create an under-supported foundation.
The Soil Becomes Consolidated
: Large structures like homes and buildings can sometimes compress soil-fill and push it into the clay soil beneath, causing the structure to fall below its original position.
If this is the case in your home or commercial space, professional help is needed sooner rather than later. After the foundation specialists have assessed and fixed your foundation, the next step will be to contact concrete flooring experts. If you are in the Colorado area be sure to contact All West Surface Prep. We are experts in concrete flooring projects.
