Subfloor patch


Hi all,
I patched a section of subfloor in my house. The subfloor material is the same but there appears to be some variations in thickness. As a result in some places the patch lies 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch below the adjacent subfloor.

I am planning to go over the entire area with another layer of 5/8" ply before putting down vinyl.

My question is what should I do, or do I need to, level out the joints. I figured I could shim it up, but that seems like the wrong thing to as I imagine I want the subfloor flush to the joists. The other option is that I could just take a belt sander and feather out the small lip?

Thoughts? Better ideas?

Thanks much
Brian

When you do that...drop a few gobs of construction adhesive in the low area. When it hardens and dries it will bridge the area and firm it up.

Subfloor patch


put some screws in the edge of the higher subfloor to see if it can be drawn down any more
