Over time, flooring and subflooring can crack and shift, resulting in an uneven surface. This can also occur if the flooring or subflooring wasn’t properly leveled upon installation.
Why does this matter? Your flooring isn’t just a place to walk — it protects your foundation from wear, water damage, and other elements.

Leveling Concrete Floor
Concrete is a common material for both subfloor and floors, as it’s easy to install and known for its durability. However, it expands and contracts with changing temperatures, leading to cracks, bumps, and other problems.
At Precision Flooring Services, we’ve seen plenty of damaged concrete in our time. We can remedy the situation with careful sanding and repair. When we’re finished, your flooring will not only be smooth but also stronger than ever.
Many companies choose hardwood for its beauty. However, this type of flooring is high-maintenance and can become worn over time. If the subfloor isn’t correctly leveled, hardwood can also creak, warp and shift.
Fortunately, we can correct both of these issues. With the help of our floor leveling contractors, your hardwood flooring can look good as new.
Metal flooring isn’t very common, but it can be a great option if your business sees a great deal of foot traffic. Of course, repeated use may affect the surface, leading to dips. As part of our leveling services, Precision Flooring Services can correct this issue.
Ceramic tiles are a classic flooring option, but an uneven surface can cause protruding and sharp corners. These are dangerous, as they can cause falls. Fortunately, it’s possible to correct bumps and slanting to create a level surface that’s both beautiful and safe.
Considered a type of concrete, gypsum is often used as a floor underlayment. It’s composed of several materials:
- Portland cement
- Gypsum plaster
The resulting surface is as strong as concrete but lighter and fire-resistant. It’s a popular choice of underlayment for hardwood.
Like concrete, gypsum can settle at a slant. Fortunately, our team can flatten any problem area.
Terrazzo is a unique material common in businesses and schools due to its durability and impressive aesthetic range. It consists of two layers: a top layer of aggregate and a bottom layer of concrete. The aggregate consists of small stone chips, color, and size chosen by the property owner.
Because both layers are poured, it’s possible to get an uneven or bumpy surface. The good news is, if you have this problem and are located in the Alexandria, VA, area, Precision Flooring Services can remedy the situation.
Epoxy, a combination of hardening agent and resin, is growing increasingly popular as a flooring option. It’s typically used atop a concrete subfloor and comes in many different colors and finishes. The durability and low maintenance make it an excellent option for businesses that see a lot of heavy foot traffic.
While many types of epoxy are self-leveling, it’s possible to get lumps or slants during the initial pour. Fortunately, Precision Flooring Services can correct the problem with a simple sanding and additional epoxy layer.
