Installing Wood Floors


My girlfriend and I are trying to learn how to install wood flooring ourselves - which seems pretty straight forward so far with one exception. We have a fairly large carpeted living room (but with plywood underneath we believe) and it all seems generally flat except for a 3-4 area just in front of the Kitchen doorway. This whole area seems to dip down.

Since the kitchen floor is at the same level of this dip, how would we account for this while installing our own wood floors? If we raise the area - we will have a step down (even if just an inch or two) to the kitchen which seems like a tripping hazard.

Appreciate any advice available.
Kyle

Installing Wood Floors


The first thing I would do is check to see why the floor has a dip. There could be structural issues underneath.
