I saw a product used on Bobs old show about 12-15 years ago. It was a liquid floor leveler that was poured over the subfloor and since liquid seeks it own level , it filled in all the dips in the floor.
I have a similar problem with a 1" dip (in 4ft).Jacking is not practical, because of probable plaster damage. I am planning on installing Laminate flooring and need a level base.
The product I saw them use was like a lightweight concrete that was 1/4" to 1" thick. The doorways were dammed up to prevent and overflow.
Is this product available? Is is a commercial application?
Let me know

Hi rodco,

There are a few products out there depending on the type of 'sub-floor' / underlayment you have that needs leveling.

Start w/your local Home Center for products. If that fails you, visit the Specialty Retailers that sell the type of flooring you're looking to eventually install. Carpet Stores, Hardwood Stores, etc..

For a taste of products, visit Floor Leveling Products. My best to ya and hope this helps.
