The Mrs wants some laminate flooring down in the newly finished kitchen /
It is an extension and as such the floor isn't completely level (slopes
slightly) and has a couple of different floor finishes at present. OSB
boards and floor boards.
Some of the OSB boards are slightly proud of its neighbour so rather than
throwing down the underlay and then the laminate I thought I would board it
first to try and help with the unevenness.
I'm looking for some guidance if anyone can help:
I'm not sure of the difference between hardboard and plywood (apart from how
it is manufactured thanks to Google).
I reckon hardboard is more flexible than plywood. So should I be going with
I don't want to raise the floor by too much so was thinking 4mm or there
abouts. Is that enough?
The packing bit is probably the least of my worries, its the slightly uneven
edges between the OSB boards and floor boards. Theses could be felt as
ridges when I had the last lost of laminate down.
Thanks though as I hadn't really thought of vinyl tiles. I was just going to
use old newspapers.
