Basement Flooring

We have just purchased a newly built house with an unfinished basement. The concrete finish is the worst scree I have ever seen, it is not level anywhere and has divits and high spots of

What is my best option to level and prepare the floor for wall to wall carpet? Is ther some type of concrete finish I can use, or should I use wood of some sort with many shims?

I may have enough room to use 2X2 as firring but I question wether a 2X2 is enough support?

Leveling concrete floor carpet

Check at your local floor covering or home center for some self-leveling compound to level out your concrete floor in preparation for carpet.

Twelvepole is right. Use a floor leveler. Very common process. It comes in 5 gallon buckets. Follow the instructions. Good Luck
