My question is what can I do to level off my floor. The room is an addition to the house and is built on the drive way (hence the slant away from the house) The room is 10' x 28' and slants about an inch and a half. The structure of the house is fine. Who ever built it, built according to the slant but did not level it. Please help it's not fun for a game room. Thank you.

There are cement mixtures that are sold to level a subfloor, but they only work wall-to-wall or wall-to-barrier, and only for moderate unlevelness. They pour on like soup, and gravity smoothes it out into a level surface. However, it only works for a thin layer of at most an inch or two. If the room is large and has a bigger slope than that, you might want to just re-pour concrete over your existing floor so that, say, the new concrete is 1/2 inch thick at the top of the "driveway" and 2 1/2 inches thick at the bottom.
