Prepare subfloor for laminate floor
My question concerns what material to use to level a plywood sub floor prior to putting down a Pergo laminate floor (pad is already attached to the laminate floor). Where the sections of plywood meet there is a slight difference and the 4 foot sections of laminate flooring will not be able to lay flat.
The Pergo installation guidelines state, "fill excessive voids or low areas using a Portland cement and latex based leveling compound". So I bought DAP Flexible Floor Patch & leveler (ready mixed). The DAP product states, "ideal for filling & leveling surfaces prior to the installation of carpeting, vinyl floor tile or sheeting as well as ceramic or mosaic floor tile". Laminate floors are not mentioned.
Is there a different product I need to be using?
