What Is Recommended For An Uneven Subfloor?

First, you must determine how level your sub-floor is. Most manufacturers require you to have it level to within ¼” over 10 ft. While laminate tends to be more forgiving of subfloor imperfections than many other types of floor finishes, installers must take the time to level the floor prior to installation. A level subfloor ensures a more attractive and long-lasting finish, and helps to reduce the risk of visible damage over time. Leveling compounds can be used on low areas, while high areas can be sanded or ground down depending on the type of sub-floor.
