garage conversion

hello,

i'm thinking of converting my garage into a personal work space. there are two small garage doors, about 7x8 each. i was thinking of replacing one with a sliding glass door, and probably just framing up the other.

the problem is, the concrete under the doors isn't level. from a high point in the center, it pitches down about an inch to either side. both doorways are about the same.

now, is there anything i can use to level the surface? someone recommended a self-levelling portland underlayment, but i'm not sure if that would be hard enough to send anchors through. any ideas?

thanks, stosh11

I would use a floor leveler. A form of concrete mentioned above.
You secure your sliding glass door by the sides and top. You only use a couple of screws(tappon type will do to keep the door straight. Make sure you put a good thick coat of silicone under the door before securing it. Good Luck
