Concrete and wood flooring

Anonymous user 4 December 2020 - 5.06 PM

Hello, I have a question regarding flooring, I have a room which is 53 sq mtrs and half the floor is concrete and half wood ( old cottage knocked into one room. It has been levelled in the middle between the two floors using cempolay . My question is - prior to installing laminate flooring - which underlay should I use ? and which thickness of laminate flooring? It is for a games room with a slate bed pool table in the middle , however won't be used on a daily basis. thanks Gordon

As long as your subfloor is nice and level, you shouldn't have any problems using cheaper materials, personally i'd use the foil backed underlay 5mm thick and anything around 10mm thick laminate . Only if the sub floor is uneven it could leave air pockets under the laminate and when something heavy is dropped or placed on top of that air pocket the tongue and groove could snap , allowing the plank to sink.

also quite possibly the slate bed pool table may be too heavy to place on a laminate floor as iit would hinder the expansion levels. maybe better to either install around it or use lvt.
