Direction of planks??


I am planing on installing a floating laminate floor in an old house that has about an 1.5" slope in 18'. For descriptive purposes I the slope is E to W. I was planing on laying the planks N to S, as this is the longest wall in the room. Does it matter which way the planks are laid, with the sloping floor.

the floor should be level first. If that is too much then run the planks perpendicular to the slope.
