Newly Installed Floor is Not Level

Answered by Brett ~ April 8, 2011 ~ Comments

How do you level a floor that has been taken down to the subflooring and has a 1" discrepancy in unevenness? We are floating a 10'x6' screen and the uneven floor is causing it to not sit straight. We just installed new flooring and supposedly the floor installer had leveled the floor!

Andrea, one of the simplest ways to level an uneven sub-floor is to use a self-leveling compound, such as Maxxon's Level-Right. The manufacturer claims their product can be applied over a cement or wood sub-floor, requires very little prep work, and can be poured in thicknesses up to a three inches. Before using any brand of self-leveling floor compound, you should check with the product's manufacturer to make sure that your finished flooring material and the specific conditions of your project meet the product's installation standards.
