I recently bought a house made in 1926. It's built into a hill where the basement is exposed in the back of the house. The basement is poured concrete. Over the years the foundation has settled about 2 to 3 inches from one end of the house to the other, so the floors slope. This has also caused a pair of small matching cracks on either side of the house in the basement walls.
There are no other problems that I know of other than that the floor slopes.
The fix to this, as I understand it, is to level the foundation by jacking it with piers. That is the root cause. However, that's expensive, and I wanted to monitor the settling before committing to the jacking (since I'm new to the house). While I wait and monitor, I was looking for suggestions or ideas on how to mitigate the sloping floors.
It's in an expensive area, so the cost of repairs tends to be small compared to the cost of the location, land, and house itself. I'm a first time home buyer, so no experience, but I naturally enjoy the DIY lifestyle when possible. :)
Looking for DIY options, guidance, or ideas for fixing these framing issues.
