My second floor is sloped - in areas the drop in the floor is about 1/2 inch over three feet.

My builder is telling me that this is normal, however they could just be trying to get out of a complicated problem.

I've checked with Engineers, and there is nothing in the building code (Ontario Canada) that specifies standards for floors/floor workmanship, so there's no standard to compare against.

I'm not really sure what to do in this case and what I can do to make the floor level. I've heard of flooring compund that can be poured over the subfloor to achieve levelness, but I don't know if this is a common solution instead of removing the subfloor and working on the joists.

Need help!

Is this a new house in progress?
What type surface is the floor?

Its a new house - about 1 year old (I've noticed it since it was built). The subfloor is plywood with parquet flooring on top.
