Caulking Laminate Flooring
I had to place the shingles all along one wall where the floor dipped down. the gap between the floor and the wall in that space is only 1/4", but between the subfloor and the surface of the new laminate, it ranges from 1/2" to roughly 1 1/4". Since it is so deep in that space, I was wondering if I should use something to fill the gap, depth wise, before adding caulking.
(I didn't use leveling compound because there are two doorways along that wall, and I was concerned it'd make an even worse mess by spilling over into other rooms. Also, it is a long wall that I needed to level out, and we need to walk on that area regularly to get to the other half of the house (bathroom!) so it couldn't really be left "off-limit" to dry, either. A rep at home depot recommended shingles to me, and I found similar advice from others on both this forum and others... it seemed like the most realistic fix!)
