You got a Lowe's nearby? Either Mapei or Tec has a floor patch that would probably work. One of them should be available at your local store.

I think the maximum you can build them up is 1/2", but you can shim the floor the rest of the way as needed. That's not a standard practice, but your project is a little off the blueprint anyway.

yea a 1/2" may be enough anyhow. A little mush to let it work its way down im ok with. I just dont want someon stepping there to potentially rip planks apart or crack them or something crazy. on the thinner stuff the tongue/joints doesnt seem as robust (naturally considering its meant for flat flooring)

I am literally 2 minutes from a lowes so thats great. What would/should i use to shim/what would be easiest? Would any material work or is there something that would be more ideal?

I hate "hacking" but the 50's homebuilders gave me no choice! Ugh ive fought this house tooth n nail every step of the way but the slab/adhesive/grade down there takes the cake.

as always, sincerely - thanks for the replies guys. This is a tad above my pay grade and it needed to be done like yesterday :P

Yes, that's what I had in mind for the drain.

You can use layers of roofing felt for shimming.

good idea on the felt. Think i have some left over in the garage too.

here is the stuff im thinking about using which may all but omit the need to shim too.

says up to 1 1/2" which is way more than i need.

look/sound feasable?

thanks once again.
