Uneven floor levels? Tell me straight!

There are many possible reasons for an uneven floor. It requires professional experience and judgement to be able to determine the likely cause. This is because there are many factors that need to be considered. Every situation is different.

Why are my floors uneven?

Some common reasons for uneven floor levels are:

  • Rot or loss of support from timber structure underneath

  • Rotting of piles

  • Rusted connections

  • Overloading (such as new tiles or tubs)

  • Gradual ground subsidence

  • Seasonal and moisture related clay shrink-swell

  • General building age
