Hi all..i'm new to the forums here and have a basement floor in need of help. Some preface first..i have recently purchased a home dated at about 1870s with a cellar floor of poured concrete. It is, however, extremely unlevel with pits and ridges in excess of 3". I'd ideally like to subfloor it with no immediate need to lay flooring but would like to someday. Also the walls/foundation is dry set stone and all original (ie. very uneven)-another project another day tho(and post floor). I've considered add'l concrete, self leveling options and even products like DRIcore (or varying combinations of any). I'd like opinions, options and ideas. Thanks!

I'd use self leveling compound, but all the ones I've seen are meant as intermediate layers, not as a finish layer. You'd need to go ahead and install floor covering over them. They may perform fine structurally if left along but they wouldn't look too great.
thx poppameth. I'm actually considering, due to the enviro in the basement, going with the self-leveling then maybe something similar to the dricore flooring and possibly just some outdoor carpeting. I really appreciate it!
