How to Level an Uneven Sub-floor in Preparation for Laminate Flooring?

I think you are on the right track with the leveling compound. By chipboard I think you mean subfloor that is made of wood chips and glue (particleboard) instead of plywood subfloors. These wood products fall apart when they get wet, so that's probably why the compound label says not to use it on particleboard. Here's an idea. .. why do not you seal the particleboard first to make it impervious to water, then use the leveling compound over it? You could easily slather on a few coats of oil based polyurethane on the particleboard. Does not have to be neat. Then use the leveling compound the way you would on any other board product that could handle some exposure to moisture

1. do I need moisture barrier under a basic wood floor before installing Laminate Flooring?

it really amazes me how many different answers you get on these kind of questions. first, before putting down the floor, make sure the sub-floor is level and free of any nails, or anything else that may be sticking up. then you will need a barrier. that is best done by laying felt roofing paper, overlay the paper by one inch. staple paper to the floor then lay your floor. the felt paper will not only give you a better surface to work on, it will also keep out moisture, it also works to keep out any squeaks in the floor. if you have any drastic squeaks, screw down the places thru to the floor joists. also, get a dehumidifier to help control the moisture coming from your basement and try and fix the problem.. good luck with your project

3. Can you place self-adhesive tile on top of laminate flooring?? Will it adhere well??

Remember, in any remodeling project, your results are only as good as your preparation.That being said, how good of shape is your granny's linoleum in? Any bubbles, rips, tears or ripples if you get on your hands and knees and look across the floor? When you set a marble on the floor, does it stay in one place, or roll across to the frig? Then there is the wax factor. Have you thoroughly stripped all the accumulated wax, grime and crud on the lino? And then washed and dried the floor afterward? If you've done all of the prep work, the floor is in excellent condition and you insist on using peel and stick floor tile, at least spend the extra few dollars and get the good tile. Not the thinnest cheapest stuff on the shelf. You will thank me later

4. Laminate flooring: Do I need to leave a space between the floor and the wall?

Generally, the rule is to leave a quarter inch against all walls to allow for the inevitable expansion of the flooring. However, check the installation instructions of the product -- different products expand differently, but they all will expand. You can minimize the dimensional change in the boards by acclimatizing the room by stacking your material in the room where it will be used for a couple of days. The gap is normally covered up with a skirting board and/or quarter round. Choose the product that you like the look of. I personally like the look of a thin 3" skirt, and then add door stop (instead of quarter round) at the bottom to thicken out the base. Door stop is the same stuff that you will see in doorways to stop the door from closing too far, mounted to the jambs, inside the opening

5. Can I float a tongue-and-grooved 1x12 pine floor over a concrete slab on grade?

Most floating flooring systems have a plastic bubble wrap/like plastic barrier between the original floor (be it concrete or wood) and the actual floor material (usually a laminate).I was thinking a paint on moisture barrier. But seeing as the laminate flooring barrier is plastic it would protect the wood from rising damp anyway. It probably would not hurt to do both. Laminate flooring is quite thin compared to real wood so you may need to plane the bottom of your doors to fit

Quickstyle Laminate Flooring1. How do you cut laminate flooring when dealing with bifold doors?just screw the brackets to the casing and not through the floor2. Please help, how much should I pay?Just installation of the laminate flooring or is more involved such as removing furniture from the room to lay the flooring and replacing the furniture after installation? Removing old carpet, padding, and disposal? Does the flooring have the padding/vapor barrier on it or will that require separate installation before the flooring can be installed? Laminate flooring requires that a small gap be left between the flooring and the walls. So, 3/4 round moulding will also have to be installed to cover the gap between the wall and the edge of the flooring. Does the room currently have 3/4 round moulding installed? If the room has carpet in it now it does not. If the room does have 3/4 round it will have to be removed before installation and then reinstalled after the flooring is installed. Labor rates vary depending upon where you live. Just a general (rough) estimate for ONLY the flooring and 3/4 round installation: $450.00 (labor only) If more must be done (such as items mentioned above) then the cost will go up.3. What are your laminate flooring suggestion for Light Oak cabinets?Check out hgtv.com they are all the time mismatching wood colors, I do know that if you add all one color of wood your house will take on that color. For example I have gold tone wood on my cabinets and my floor so my house has taken on a warm golden shade. I do not mind this but my husband Absolutely loves it. So make sure you are prepared for that to happen if you use a shade of what you already have. You really can not clash with wood4. Darlington Oak Laminate Flooring Installation?I have laid alot of that particular flooring and am headed to Lowe's to pick up more Darlington oak in the morning. Its actually pretty good flooring. We use it in apartments and it seems to be holding up very well. Any way Start in a left hand corner .Assemble a complete row . When you cutoff the last piece in the row to fit , the piece that's left over is what you start the next row with. That automatically staggers the joints and makes the floor stronger. I always assemble whole rows ,then lock togather the newly assembled row to the flooring already in place. When looking down at the flooring the longest lip faces new rows. I always tap all joints with a scrap after I lock then togather. Hope this helps. If you were here tommorrow I could give you a quick lesson5. Need some advice on how best to make a kerf slot in door stop to accept vinyl clad weatherstripping?Got good hands,,,, the fastest way is an undercut jamb saw. You can rent one at the home depot, and probably the Lowe's, for about $20/day. Traditional use is for cutting door jams to accept laminate flooring. If you feel a touch shaky, get some carpenters clamps and put up a board inside of the door, to hold a board as a rest and a guide. Good luck.6. How do you fix air bubbles in wood laminate flooring?If you placed it over concrete and did so without a 6ml vapor barrier, then you have ruined the job. Most people do not realize that concrete "sweats". If you put it over a plywood subfloor, you should have put some rosin paper down first as well. If you did not do this, moisture will cause the floor to buckle7. What removes the cloudiness on laminate flooring?Have you tried vinegar and water? Mist on from a spray bottle and use a duster type mop. You may have to do it a few times since you may have a build up of improper cleaners..Dry with a bath towel between cleanings.. Start with a 50/50 mix and cut down to a 1/3 solution of vinegar/ water for normal use.. This is a mild acid type cleaner to cut through any build up. BTW.. white vinegar.. At least this is a cheap try and can be used in day to day cleaning.....GL
