In reply to Basement floor level? by Ken on November 5th, 1999 11:26 AM [Go to top of thread]


The floor in a basement SHOULD be sloped in case of flood. I know it's not easy to deal with, but I'm trying to figure why you want it so flat. The only thing I can think of is for flooring purposes but there are other ways around it. The slope is very gradual, and most floors can be installed without looking like they're sloped. The 24x24 size will compensate for the slight slope. If you have a reason why it needs to be perfectly flat post it here and I'll try to help. The floor leveling material you noted is for surface imperfections and irregularities and not really for what you are trying to do. The only other possibility is to use a bonding agent and pour more concrete and float it smooth to make it flat. This is not easy, and could end up making it worse. Jeff
