I got such great help on my saw question a few weeks ago that I
thought I'd come back to you with another one.
Before we put the wood floor in I'm raising the subfloor by 1/2" to
match with the tile that the wood butts up to. Most of the room has
gone fine, but now I'm down to the last part at the bottom of the
stairs. The problem is that the old subfloor curves down toward the
wall a bit. At the deepest part it's about half an inch.
I've posted a few pictures here
What should I do about this? Shims?
Also, the carpet guy left a little bit of overlap carpet where the
wood will transition and will come back and finish it once the wood
floor is in. He left about 3 inches without pad and stapled it down,
should I pull the staples and run the wood right up to the pad?
That is the number 2 picture from the link.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
