Sinking floor???

A gap has appeared between the baseboard and the floor near the doorway in my bedroom. It looks as if the floor is sinking! The split-entry house was built in 2003. Is there anyone out there who can enlighten me as to the possible reasons for this situation??

Re: Sinking floor???

mellsworth .... it's very difficult to tell over the internet what exactly is the situation without seeing how and where things are located and framed.

There is a myriad of things that could be the cause ...... for example .... the wall with door could be sitting over the space between joists and on a joint between the sheets used for the sub floor ... which would be a weak point .... this just illustrates one of many possibilities without further information.
