Uneven floor problems!


I have a problem with my dinning room floor. I want to Put in new hard wood floor, but it seems the old owners had an issue and repaired the floor the best they could. It's uneven in a section about 2 ft by 2 ft! What do I do to fix this before new flooring is installed?

Need to know what on the floor now.
Is there access under the floor to help see what's going on?

Are you planning on removing the old flooring before you install the new?

What sort of uneven spot is this? High ?

How old is the house? What is the subfloor? Are there 1x2 sleepers between the subfloor and the hardwood?

Why would you not just have the floors refinished?

It would be better if you go for refinishing the floor, and if you want to add the picture
Click on the reply a small window will open
There are many options on the bar click on the attachment icon some option will open
Browse the image and upload, Picture will appear like this.
Hopefully you get the idea. I have uploaded pic for your understanding
