Why Do I Need My Floors Leveled Before Installing Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring on an uneven floor will cause many problems. One of the major problems is loud pops and cracks that will eventually surface when you walk across due to pockets of air beneath the surface as a result of the uneven subfloor.
While laminate tends to be more forgiving of subfloor imperfections compared to other types of flooring, it is still important to level your flooring to avoid future damage if you are installing laminate flooring on an uneven subfloor. A level subfloor ensures a more attractive and long-lasting finish
Correcting uneven subfloors is a common practice in the floor installation process. Before you can even consider installing timber, laminate, or other flooring, you need an even subfloor.
