I am preparing to install laminate throughout my house - am just pulling up the existing carpet, hardwood, etc. For the most part, the subfloor is in decent shape. There are few areas where I will need to replace sections, etc. There is however a few smaller areas where there are chips and splintered planks, etc. My question is how true does the floor need to be for the laminate to float properly?
Would it be in my best interest to lay some 3/16th plywood over the entire floor to make even, or can laminate site on slightly non-flat surfaces allright?
