I just bought a 1925 house. I have a small living room that bows in the middle. From the middle to the far wall the floor drops 1.5 to 2 inches over 12 feet. Anyone ever had to correct this much of a slope? I don't want to use self leveling compound for this since it seems like that would be a lot of weight and a lot of mess. I'm considering using roofing shingles (which i've been recommended elsewhere) or pulling up the tounge and groove and putting down plywood with some shims underneath on the joists. Lastly i could try to jack the house up underneath but i think that might be getting outside my skill level. So if anyone has had any experiance with this kind of a slope i'd appreciate some input.
Also i'm pretty positive the reason i have the slope is because my foundation has settled, i have an unfinished basement so its easy for me to get down there and look around. My house is an L shaped bungalow, so the living room is the short part of the L and the far end is the area that has sloped.
