Search the List (in green banner bar) for the type of contractor you need in your locale, and ratings and reviews.

Now - for type of contractor:

1) if minor local unevenness in the subfloor sheathing (plywood or particle board usually) then your flooring contractor can usually use a floor levelling compound or belt sander to level local issues out, or install an overlay if needed due to deteriorated subfloor.

2) if due to subfloor coming loose from the joists and bowing or cupping or arching or delaminating due to water, some flooring contractors will replace it or trim joints and screw it down too - otherwise a rough carpenter.

3) if due to broken or sagging floor joists or trusses, then you are going to need some structual support help - may involve several trades in working around the existing plumbing and electrical, so I would go with a general contractor who does remodel and rehab work.
