Can We Install Laminate Flooring On An Uneven Floor?

Laminate flooring adds a tinge of glamour to your space and is extremely durable, that makes it all the more popular. But the main criterion to install it on the floor is a flat surface and it is impossible to get laminate flooring if the surface is uneven. In case you are wondering whether it is possible to install laminate flooring on an uneven surface or not, well it is. It is a known fact that laminating over an uneven surface will let the floor take the surface’s shape over a period of time that will look extremely bad considering the amount of money and effort you put to get the best of everything.

 Laminate Flooring On Uneven Floor

 So how can one install these laminate flooring on uneven floor? Well the answer is, there are various self leveling compounds available in Singapore alone that can help the floor to be flat. These compounds are available from the local Singapore dealers or can be exported from outside and can be used by professionals that can be hired by you or by yourself in case you are in a "Do It Yourself’ mode. Taking the help of professionals will ensure that the floor is evened out properly and in a neat way, whereas doing it yourself would require you to do a certain amount of research and then work accordingly. Once the floor is evened, laminate flooring can be installed with ease.

How to install Laminate flooring:

The first step is to uninstall the existing flooring of the room you wish to laminate. Once done, you can buy laminate flooring and open the boxes, before laying them in any other room just to check out the room’s temperature. Now you have to be ready to uninstall the uneven floor. For this, clean the room you wish to install the laminate flooring in make sure that there is no debris or dust left. Once cleaned, you will have to identify the floor’s low spot by placing carpenter’s level. The start from the first line to the end and mark the low spots throughout. Once done, you can put the compound in these spots. If there is an application of excess compound, you can remove it using a blade or a knife. Now let the compound dry for a day.

Once the smoothing is done using the leveling compound and it is dry, check the surface once again using the carpenter’s level. In case here is still unevenness left or a part of the floor is rugged, apply the compound again and let it dry completely. Once ready, you can start to laminate floor. The next part requires a bit of professional touch since the floorboards are required to be laid according to the length of the straight wall that is the longest in the room. Now the first flooring row is to be placed all across the wall and then subsequent floorings should be placed one after the other in a row. Now continue until the entire floor is covered perfectly. Installing laminate flooring on uneven floor is very easy, considering you take the right effort with the right knowledge.
