If you want to raise the height of a floor, the cheapest and easiest way is to add a thick underlayment designed for the job. There are other options too like adding a framed wooden subfloor or floor leveling compound before installing new flooring.
How to Raise Floor?
Raising a floor is a common home improvement project that can be done with a few simple tools and a bit of know-how. Raising a floor can be used to level out an uneven floor or to raise a floor to accommodate larger furniture or appliances. Whether you’re raising a floor in a basement, a kitchen, a bathroom or any other area of your house, the steps are generally the same. Here’s a simple guide to show you how to raise a floor.
First, you’ll need to determine how much of an incline or decline your floor has. If you’re raising the floor to level it out, you’ll need to use a level to measure the difference in height. If you’re raising the floor to make room for larger objects, you’ll need to measure the height of those objects.
Once you’ve determined how much to raise the floor, you can begin the process. Start by removing any existing flooring, such as carpets or tiles, to expose the subfloor. Next, you’ll want to use a pry bar to remove any nails that are still in the subfloor.
