A basement floor that is not level can be a great inconvenience, as well as an indication of potentially severe and threatening issues with your overall foundation and structure. Usually, an un-level floor is visible by multiple indicators: significant cracks in the slab floor, a pronounced crack creating an elevation difference on either side of the crack, noticeable settlement between the foundation wall and the floor, and a gradual or steady incline from one side of the basement to the other. If you notice uneven concrete floors in your property, contact LUX Foundation Solutions!
A basement floor that is uneven is most commonly caused by soil settlement near the foundation or underneath the footer and slab itself. However, less commonly, a basement slab may be uneven due to conditions present at the initial pour. Our expert technicians are trained to identify the differences and determine the severity of any issues you may be experiencing.

Our solution to an unleveled basement floor will be customized and fitted to your situation and your needs. The solution ranges from repair to a complete replacement. Repairing the unlevel basement floor can be carried out by either a mechanical repair with the Grip-Tite Slab Pier System or through a process of injecting material underneath the slab typically referred to as mudjacking or polyjacking. The replacement consists of removing the existing basement floor, addressing the soil and settlement beneath the slab and footer if necessary, and repouring the slab.
