Are you tired of tripping over uneven floors and doorways in your home? Do you have cracks in your walls, ceilings, and floors? If so, you may need interior slab levelling to restore your floors.
Having uneven or unlevel floors in your home can be a big inconvenience and safety hazard. You might notice cracks or separations in doorways, which can be dangerous and lead to more severe damage over time. Interior slab floors slabs sink and settle over time. This can occurs if they are poured on wet, weak, or poorly compacted soil. As the slab settles over time, it pulls away from the walls, creating gaps at the seams. Interior slab settlement can also create tripping hazards and can cause other problems with your home. It can also make your home more challenging to sell. When prospective buyers come to see your home and see foundation issues, they may be hesitant to buy.

Interior slab floors sink and settle for many reasons. The most common causes of this include: water seepage, shifting soil, poor design work, excavation work nearby, and differential settlement of nearby structures.
Water seepage is a major cause of interior slab floors sagging and sinking. Water can seep through the floor, into the foundation, and then into the subflooring. The subflooring is likely to be affected by this water damage and may become warped or cracked as a result. This, in turn, can lead to uneven settling of the interior slab flooring. Water seepage can also cause mould and mildew growth and issues with the structural integrity of your home or business.
Shifting soil is another common cause of interior slab floors settling unevenly over time. As buildings settle into the ground around them, they tend to pull away from their foundations slightly as they settle into place. When a building settles unevenly over time, this may cause one part of the foundation may settle more than another, which can cause issues with interior slab floors sagging, sinking or cracking. This differential settlement can cause your home or business to lean, walls to bow inwards and crack and could lead to the eventual collapse of the structure.
Another common cause of interior slab floor settlement is the length of steel dowels used when the slab was poured. These steel dowels are typically spaced around 16 to 24 inches apart and inserted through holes drilled in the foundation and anchored to rebar embedded in the interior floor slab. These dowels can pull out if the holes aren't drilled at an angle deep enough into the foundation or too big for the angle at which they were drilled. They can also rust over time or be too small to support the interior floor slab's weight. Whatever the reason your interior slab floor is sinking and settling, the concrete lifting experts at Maritime Concrete Lifting can restore them to their original level quickly and efficiently.
