  • After acquiring all the required builders leveling devices, you must measure the drop in your floor. To do so, lay a long level downward on the floor, with one end of the level on the level part of the floor and the other end at the lowest point. Raise the lower end of the level until the bubble is centered, then measure the distance from the bottom of the level to the floor to find the depth of the dip.
  • Cut a leveling strip (a very long triangle) from a 2” x 10”. The triangle should taper from the out-of-level measurement down to nothing.
  • Position the leveling strip on the floor and see if the top edge of the strip checks out as level. Adjust the strip as needed. When complete, this will be a spacer that bridges the gap between the old floor and the new, level surface.
  • Next, cut and attach more strips. To do this, cut multiple leveling strips the same size as your original strip. If the floor slants irregularly, cut strips that bridge the cap at each floor joist. Attach leveling strips. Use screws to secure the leveling strips to the floor every 16 inches. Screw the strips into the floor joists or subfloor.
  • Last but not least, install a plywood subfloor. Run a bead of construction adhesive along the top of each strip, then install 3/4" plywood on top of the strips to create the new floor surface. Nail the plywood in place with a framing nailer.
