slanted floor


We bought a "new house" and the dining room floor is on a slant. My husband didn't beleive me at first but now he does. Is there anything that can be done to fix it? One of many problems in this house.

Yes, anything can be fixed---The question is how hard will it be?

We need to know why the floor is going down hill.

Can you post a picture of the room? And the room/basement/crawl space below it?

Or at least tell us what you can about the house and what is under that floor.--Mike--

Did the house have a professional inspection?
How old is the house?
Has the structure beem modified? Added to?
Is the foundation visable from the basement? Any settling evidence?
As Mike said, post some photos of the floor from above and below. If the basement ceiling is finished, you might need to open it to get a real understanding of the issue.
