Gaps between the floor and the wall are a sure sign of a serious foundation problem.
Uneven and cracking floors can cause major problems in any home. In addition to creating tripping hazards, making the home uncomfortable, and simply looking bad, damaged floors also lower property value. Making matters worse, these issues are often symptoms of a foundation problem.

If you have cracks in your basement floor or concrete slab, they are likely caused by movement in your foundation. Depending on soil conditions, many foundations and concrete slabs sink and settle over time, placing stress on the concrete and eventually causing it to crack. Shrinking soils, soil washout, and poor compaction of backfill soil can all lead to your foundation slab sinking and settling.
Floor cracks create tripping hazards, make a home uncomfortable, and reduce your property value. We can eliminate these side effects by installing foundation pier systems to raise and level your floors. These piers reach to stable soils to provide better support for your concrete slab and stabilize it. We then repair the cracks themselves and restore your floor to its original smooth, level condition.
While you may think that an uneven floor would be obvious, many homeowners don’t notice until they drop something and it rolls all the way to the other side of the room. Short of that happening, common warning signs of uneven floors include separations between the floor and the wall, doors that are difficult to open and close, and sections of the floor feeling bouncy or unsupported. In most cases, these problems are not caused by the floor itself, but rather the foundation and soils below it.
The main causes of uneven floors are settling concrete slabs, foundation heave, and failing crawl space joists. If the floor in question is above your crawl space, we will provide additional support using crawl space support jacks, which will raise and level the floor. If the issue is with your foundation, foundation piers can be installed to restore your floor to its original position and stabilize it.
Many homeowners avoid the crawl space in their home, and for good reason. However, that area can also cause some serious problems for your home, including sagging, uneven, or bouncy floors. If your crawl space has insufficient, deteriorating, or poorly spaced joists, the floors above are where you’ll feel the effects. When the joists aren’t doing their job correctly, the floors in your home will start to sag down, potentially going so far as to separate from the wall.
Our crawl space support jacks are the solution to this problem. These support posts install underneath the floor joists and raise them to their correct position, providing the support your floors need. These jacks are easily adjustable, meaning any future issues can quickly be resolved. With stainless posts that are compatible with crawl space encapsulation, you won’t need to worry about rotting crawl space joists any longer.
You don’t have to deal with cracked, unlevel, or sagging floors in your home any longer. Mission Home Services provides complete floor repair services to ensure that you have safe, stable, and level floors throughout your home.

“From the very beginning of the transaction, Dave, the owner was honest, upfront and professional in his interactions with me. I am more than pleased with the work but more importantly, his values instilled in me a sense of confidence in small business owners who still believe in doing what is right for customers and providing outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend Mission Home Services!”
“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”
“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
