The remodeling process IS very difficult, uneven floors or not. I do remodeling and design for a living. This is only one amoung many problems we deal with daily. Assessing all the reasons the problem exists is the first step to a solution. so far what you have presented is like calling the emergency room and saying I feel bad. What can I do?

Please describe how it is uneven. What kind of framing, is it several layers of old floors, what kind of house, how old, do floors sag in the middle or roll throughout, what kind of foundation...

Don't forget, you can see it, we can't!

Yes, sometimes you can pour a self leveling cement in the low area, but it depends on what kind of flooring you have down or are planning to put down.
