Leveling Basement Floor

Posted by Chris Smith on December 11th, 2002 02:44 AM

We are renovating the basement in our house. We are removing the carpet and installing laminate flooring. We have one small problem though. There is a drain in the middle of the floor. Around the drain for a diameter of about 2 feet the floor is sloping towards the drain. The drain is about 1.5" below the rest of the floor.
The laminate flooring won't install over this dip. We need to level the floor somehow. I know installing a subfloor will fix this, but the ceiling is low and raising the floor wil make it too low. I was thinking that I could extend the drain up the 1.5" and then use floor leveling concrete to make it level.

Would this work? If not, what else can I do?

Thanks for your help,
