Your concrete slab floor is showing signs of sinking, sagging, or settling. Your floor may be cracking, or the walls may be separating from the floor below or ceiling above.
● Cracks in the concrete floor● Floors dropping and separating from the walls, forming a gap between the floor and wall● Interior walls separating from the ceiling, forming a gap between the wall and ceiling● Walls pulling away from adjacent walls● Interior wall cracks, commonly off the corners of interior doors
When a floor slab settles, the damage can manifest itself in many ways. Along with cracks in the concrete, the floors can separate from the walls as they sink downwards. Alternatively, the interior wall may be pulled down with the floor, instead of separating from the ceiling. Walls can also pull away from other walls, and interior wall cracks can form -- commonly off the corners of interior doors.
