Is the flooring in your property falling apart? Are there any cracks, stains, or uneven concrete slabs in your flooring? This is a sign you may need to undergo floor levelling.
Floor levelling is a critical step in the floor preparation procedure, and at Oz Timber Floor, we can help you lay the foundations correctly once again through our comprehensive and effective floor levelling services.
The aim of floor levelling is that it gives you a good basis for the underlying concrete slab before laying the timber floor topping. It’s important that when installing new timber flooring, the base underneath the new floor covering is a flat and smooth surface. Otherwise, it could lead to more damage to your floors in the near future, costing you more in the long run.
With our help, we’ll recreate the perfect foundation for you to walk around your home or office with confidence.

What is Floor Levelling?
Floor levelling is an essential part of the floor preparation procedure and occurs when there’s a rough uneven concrete subfloor in the underlying concrete slabs that needs smoothening out. The purpose of this is to recognise and balance out the uneven concrete slabs so that the laying floor coverings can be placed on top without any issues coming into play.
The size of the slabs is then minimised through our concrete grinding service, which then levelling concrete fills the dips in the subfloor. By doing this process, it ensures that your timber floor covering doesn’t have any issues in the long run, allowing you to roam around the property with ease.
The Benefits of Floor Levelling

Frequently Asked Questions
How Does the Floor Become Uneven & What Happens If the Floor Becomes Unbalanced?
There are many reasons why your flooring becomes uneven. This is because of how the underlying ground naturally changes over time. These changes occur because of the following:
- Bad Quality Soil Used
- Changing Temperature
- Increased Humidity
- Poor Soil Compaction
Many individuals, when fitting new floors in their home or commercial building, often overlook the critical step of checking the level of their concrete and timber subfloors. This oversight typically results in their floors harbouring minor inconsistencies and dips. To prevent such issues, it’s crucial to carry out the correct floor preparation before proceeding with the installation of your new flooring system.
If the floor continues to be unlevelled, this can continue to make the entire floor sound squeaky. This happens due to the bouncing effect created when the floorboards are placed in higher areas. When these floorboards are placed in lower areas, this, however, produces a hollow sound. If this issue is not attended to, this can cause serious damage to your property which is why floor levelling is such an important step.
How Much Does Our Floor Levelling Cost?
The price for our services varies depending on the severity of the concrete slab. We tailor our costs to suit everyone’s budget and circumstances. Speak to our team to get a free quote. We are fully transparent with our pricing, so you are more than aware of how much our services cost right before we even get started.
What Are the Australian Standards as Determined by Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia?
Before proceeding with the floor installation process, it’s essential to ensure the floor is perfectly smooth and level. Levelling the concrete floor is a crucial step to conform to the Australian standards set by Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia.
These standards stipulate a maximum tolerance for any room and a maximum tolerance of 20 mm across the interior floor coverings throughout the entire building’s footprint. For timber flooring, a tolerance of 3mm per 3m is acceptable. However, if the tolerance exceeds this, floor levelling is necessary.
In contrast, vinyl floor levelling doesn’t call for a specific concrete floor surface slab specification. Nevertheless, a balanced slab undoubtedly enhances the aesthetic appeal.
