We have a Bungalow built in the 30’s with excellent character
(a.k.a. uneven floors). Next spring we intend to put in new flooring
in the dining room. I installed laminate in the kitchen and it looks
great but we will do either real or veneered hardwood here. Does
anyone have any experience with laying hardwood on somewhat undulating
(not bad but noticeable) sub-floor? Can glue down install be used?
If it has to be nailed down, I’ll look into renting a hammer.
Professional install is out of the budget.
Thanks in advance.

Is the undulation (lack of level) from a plywood subfloor laid over crooked
joists? Or T & G over crooked joists? Or is there a structural probelem that
needs to be addressed?
Before putting down a good floor correct the fundamental problems first. Like
they say in the brokerages, putting nice flooring over a problem like this is
putting lipstick on the pig.
Daryl, which laminate are you using? I'm doing a poll on laminate
flooring brands, I would love to get your input... it is at

I'm not Daryl but I put Wilsonart Estate Plus in my kitchen a year and a half
ago. It doesn't try to look like wood or tile; it's solid so no hollow feel
when walked on and cleans up easily. I'm going to put it down in a family room
at a beach house next. Good stuff.
Whoops, :) If you visited the survey you might have noticed it was
broken... for some reason it was set to only take votes from
registered voters... I've fixed it now, can you vote? (I can only do
it once from my PC). It should take 15 seconds.
