Bathroom vinyl flooring installation


My bathroom had vinyl flooring that is 30yrs old and I am replacing it but had some mice problems and had to replace subfloor and underlayment. The underlayment was particle board that had a white coating on it and the floor stayed put really good so I put 1/2" particle bnoard down again. but went ot the local Menards and they said that I should put a 1/4" underlayment over the particle board and I really dont want to do this so can I put the patching compound on it to fill screw hooles and joints and then use some sort of primer before installing the flooring. Thanks Rick

Particleboard is a very poor product for any floor covering underlayment. In fact, if you would read the instructions from the makers of the flooring products I think you would find that particleboard is specifically excluded from use.

you can try it, but failure is more likely with it.
Particle board tends to soak up water in the adhesive before it gets a chance to cure-
