pergo plank flooring

Posted by chuck on May 12th, 2001 11:35 AM

I bought pergo flooring for my living room. Then, I discovered the underlayment was covering very un-even subfloor.

1)can self leveling compound be applied on the sub-floor & then be covered by the underlayment?? (nails for the underlayment would have to penetrate the leveling compound).

2)The Pergo tolerance for un-evenness is stated as 3/16". What if I exceed this?

3)My basement is part dirt. The house is generally damp most of the time (not to the extent that molds are a problem).Is there any chance the Pergo will "settle" & conform to an uneven floor due to this dampness? (My reason for asking is not to avoid the leveling compound, but to see optimum results AFTER I apply it, expecting that the leveling process would turn out "fair". This would be my dream).

4)I am extremely handy (electrician by trade), but have no experience with self leveler compound. Is it user friendly?

Thanks in advance for any help I receive!
