Hi there,

 

I'm hoping someone can help me.  My flat is on a hill and floor isn't level anywhere in the flat.

Now I was happy with that when I moved in and have spent many a tipsy night in with friends "rock climbing" or rolling my Godchildren from the bedroom to the front door  :lol: . Unfortunately circumstances have changed and I need to be on a completely level floor for health reasons. It's the bedroom and living room I'm interested in, but will do the whole thing if need be.

Who would I need to do this and does anyone have any recommendations?

 

Thanks in advance

A couple of questions:

 

Are you on the ground floor?

 

Do you have suspended (timber) or solid (concrete) floors?

If it's a concrete floor you can always use self-levelling concrete. If timber, well....

Morning, thanks for the responses.

It is the ground floor flat in that you come in and there are no stairs. There is a flat underneath me though but the entrance is on a different road.

I believe it's concrete under the laminate. If it is timber, can nothing be done?

If it's timber you have to take the floorboards off the joists, which is a fair bit trickier and more expensive.

Thank you for explaining that Trux. So the best person to get a quote from would be a builder?
