In reply to leveling kitchen floor by Lenore on March 12th, 2003 02:00 PM [Go to top of thread]

talking about building up the floor with leveling patch compound? Yes, that should not be done in a large thickness. But if your floor is as dramatically unlevel as you say, I would explore repairing your floor framing and resheathing it. This would simply involve removing the existing substrate, bolting new framing to the existing for a level base and screwing down new sheathing. Sounds extensive and expensive, I know, but it's the only way you're going to have a dependably level, solid kitchen floor. And depending on how big an area and what the current floor construction consists of, it might not be that big or expensive of a job. Got handy friends? My $.02 worth. Luck, Kizmet
