Homework Hawk Level Floor

Eric: As a contractor, yes Dan is correct. I own a house that is over 125 years old. The sagging will continue, slowly, but it will continue. Also correct is the fact in jacking up the floor with move everything above. I ended up jacking my stair well because of the same exact problem. Only my sag was 4” in 6 feet. That said, Yes you need to position a post under the lowest point of the sag on a joist. Probably at the right corner of your stairs in your drawing. Next you need to determine if you can take the sag out as Todd said using the post, without damaging too much and having to do costly repairs. If you can not raise the floor with the post then the next best way is to bring the level of the floor up by, 1- placing shims( ripping 2×4’s) under the luan before installing the new flooring to even out the floor. 2- If possible troweling floor leveler to even out the floor before installing luan, then the laminate. 3- Most expensive, shim floor then lay 3/4” tongue and groove plywood sheeting down, with laminate over top. Last method would give you the strongest floor, but it will also raise your floor where it meets other rooms. Your decision, your wallet. As for using the concrete backer board, if your were putting down ceramic tile, then yes that would be best, but since not, it is only an extra cost. Hope this helps. Not an easy project, but take it slow and it will turn out good.
