hump and slope kitchen floor


Hi, we are renovating our kitchen. There is a slight hump near a heat register and then a slope towards the center of the kitchen. We will be installing hardwood floors. Should we dump a bunch of self leveling concrete to try to even out the floor first? Thx. Matt

No---Self leveling compound is for tile--the flooring staples or cleats will blow chunks out or the cement material.

Either correct the subfloor issues before you start or use shims.
