Noticed anything wrong with your floors doors & stairs?
Are your floors level? Are your door frames out of square? Are the treads on your staircase level? What about your windows do they open freely? Does the ridge line on your roof sag like the back of an old horse? These may be warning signs or symptoms of a larger problem.
If any of the these are present in your home / building it may be an indicator that:
- your foundation has moved / settled
- possible deflection in the support beams / floor joists
- your support posts / columns have moved
- an improper repair or modification has been made
Sometimes it’s worse in older homes but it can also be found in newer homes too. Some minor deflection (bend) is not uncommon as wood is an organic material and may move slightly over time. However when one of these is showing a significant deflection or a number of them are present it can be indicative of something more significant. If may be that you will require professionals to evaluate the matter to better ascertain what might be going on.
If you’re unsure why these conditions might be present with the floors doors & stairs in your home, get it inspected.
