How can I level my basement floor, which has a 2-3inch dip in the middle?

    How big is the dip area (small area dent or the whole floor slopes towards the middle? Is there a floor drain in the middle? If not, is the dip due to settlement (in which case there would be cracks around the dip where the floor bends? – fixer1234 Nov 29 '17 at 5:15

    Several company's make concrete leveling products. Do a google search. – Paul Logan Nov 29 '17 at 15:52

If there isn’t a moisture problem, I’d use a gypcrete self-leveling compound. Feather to edges and cover entire floor with your final floor finish. (Gypcrete can’t be left exposed. It’s not a walking surface.)

Gypcrete can only be installed to 3”-4” depth, so it would be fine. If there’s a moisture problem, you must take care of that first.
