    Hey everyone - Looking for some suggestions/guidance on an approach to how much to handle our foundation and joist issues. You can feel where the floor drops in different areas of the house. Of course i notice it more than anyone else. Photo 1 & 2: Sill plate that goes from one perimeter wall...

    Hi, we're nearing the end of a kitchen remodel, and the tile contractor didn't make sure the floor was level. It dips from left to right under the refrigerator (the cabinet box, itself, is level and plumb). This causes the fridge to sit crooked in the 36" cabinet box, so much that it can barely...

    I am doing Basement Concrete Subfloor - Rigid Vinyl plank installation. Lifeproof vinyl plank installation instructions has "Be level to within 1/4 in. in a 10 ft. span; slope 1 in. in 6 ft.;" What does this mean by "Be level to within 1/4 in. in a 10 ft. span"? In a 10ft circle from one end...

    I stupidly framed out my basement and put up drywall, which looks great. I then realized that I should level the floor - the floor drops 3-4" over 12' and it isn't flat, either. I want to use concrete to level the floor so that I have more flooring options. My drywall ends ~1" off of the floor...

    I'm sure a lot of you have seen my previous posts on subflooring before installing 12x24 porcelain tile. I have finally finished installing the hardie backer and just checked my floor flatness before I start tiling. I used a 2 ft grid and laser level to find my high spot/spots and have figured...

    I want to tile over the slab area where a previous shower had been. It's about 2'x3' and dips about 2" below level at center (drain). The slab is continuous (no separate shower pan). I was thinking mortar to level the depression, but I'm afraid the mortar won't bond where it feathers to 0 at the...

    HI - I saw a previous posting but no answer - hope you can help. I have a 7x7 vinyl shed with metal reinforced walls. It comes with vinyl/plastic floor. I understand the key to easy install is super level base because the floor pieces have to snap together. My problem is - I am putting up...
