How long can uneven floors hold up?

Weak soils mixed with changing weather can expand, shrink, and shift the ground supporting your home. This results in unstable and lessening of solis beneath your floors and the home begins to settle. As the home settles, it compresses or sinks into the weak soils, causing your home to deform in areas such as the floors and walls.
