Laminate Question

We just hired someone to start laying laminate floors in our new place. There is a part of the living room where the floor is uneven and so the floor is a little "wobbly" when you walk on it. Is there anything we can do? Or is the only answer to get that self-leveling cement?

Is the base cement or wood? If it's a high spot, you can sand/grind it down. If it's a low spot then you have to fill with self leveling compound.

Laminate Question

Lay that sh!t right over it. Tell everyone it's the "character" of the room.

Sue the previous owners for not disclosing high spot causing you to slip and fall face down while aroused, now your only option is to start hormone therapy and become a chick since your d!ck no longer works.

Acquire BFH and pound high spot into submission.

Burn house down, collect insurance money, rebuild with no high/low spot.

Oh the possibilities!

Serious answer: depends on the sub. Self leveling compound or sand/grind. Not a big deal to fix. Don't stress about it. Floors will look great when finished!

The base is cement.

Now that the whole room has filled with the floors and the baseboards are down, there is only one spot that has a bit of space to it. I guess I panicked too soon and should have waited a bit.
