How level does my floor need to be?
How level does a floor need to be before laying new engineered boards over it?
I'm about to start laying a wood engineered floor over my existing floorboards at home.
Although we can make the surface fairly level itself there is a bow or dip to the floor at one end of the room with the existing floorboards being lower at the walls than they are in the middle of the room.
The difference could be as much as 2cms rise and fall over 3-4 metres.
Is this something that the new floor boards will deal with or do I need to somehow completely level the original floor before I can start the new one?
Hope you don't mind the question, I just came across your carpentry site looking for an answer and thought you'd probably be a good person to ask!
