If you lay your new floor over your old sloped floor, your new floor will be sloped also. I don't know about your home, so I am not sure if jacking it is practical, however, that would be my first suggestion. Your home is not that old, so you probably have experienced some setteling. Maybe a little jacking, some oak shims, and away you go. I probably would not even think about
new subflooring at this point, that is a big costly job. Check out jacking up first. Good Luck
