Angry Basement Floor - Unlevel Concrete

I recently had a concrete floor poured in the basement of a new home. The concrete was not properly handled, and as a result, the floor is in terrible condition with low spots, jagged edges, gouges from the power trowel, and places where wet concrete was poured over cured concrete that is flaking up off the floor. The floor was poured about a week ago.

To complicate matters, there is 2 in foundation insulation under the concrete with Wirsbo radiant heat. To tear up the floor and re-pour would be costly, at the same time this is a very expensive new home that needs to have a decent floor.

What are my options for repair? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Choice 1- force who ever poured the floor to fix the problem.

Choice 2- Visit your local mega hardware store and look at the "floor level in a can" stuff. It supposed to bond pretty good to cement and may be the answer you seek.
