One of the first things that you should check on a potential fixer upper is all the windows and doors. If the windows are sticking and the doors are scraping the floor in way then you need to check the floor with a level because it is most likely sloping due to an unstable, shifting foundation. Leaking sub-floor plumbing or shallow foundation footings may be the cause. The question, is whether or not there is enough room under the home to allow you to get under it and jack it back up. Also, if it's due to water problems there can also be severe dry rot issues as well. Posted by Colleen Lane on
