    Hi all,
    possible long shot, but here goes:
    sliding wardrobe door bottom track sits on the wooden floorboards, but they aint level and as the wardrobe IS vertical then the doors won't run straight if you get my drift, plus they slide down to one end all on their own.
    I did try using shims to level up the tracking, but i think over time the weight of the doors will bend the track due the cavity underneath it where the shims aren't placed.
    I was thinking there may be some latex type levelling screed that i could use that would totally fill any void whilst giving me a smooth solid and most importantly level area for the track to sit back onto.
    The area to fill would be approx 70mm a 1600mm and would go from 0mm deep at one end to maybe 8mm (max) at the other.
    I'm concerned that due to the narrow width that any screed used could simply not take and crack up even if it were flexible (latex).
    Any advice would be most appreciate as i'm pretty much out of ideas on how to solve this now.

    Cheers

    Full length packing, long wedges of thin hardboard would do it . Screed isn’t going to work.
