I think we need more info

It depends on the material currently on or under the flooring.
For example if the current floor is vinyl with plywood below that and you plan on removing the vinyl then you might use a leveling compound (found at H.D. or Lowes) that can be trowelled on. If this a large area there are also liquid levelers but I am not sure that they are ok on plywood or not.

What do you mean by "slope"? Most folks would interpret "slope" as the high-to-low slant of a roof.


Perhaps you mean "sag", as a clothesline "sags" from weight?


If it's sagging, you would set up a suitable beam under the floor and use jackposts to raise it slowly over a period of time.
