Filling screw holes


Redoing our bathroom. I screwed the subfloor down to the joists, because the floor was squeeking. That solved the squeeking. BUT, some of the screws sank into the subfloor a fair ways, more than just the float will deal with. I have Roberts, 8000 embossed floor filler. Do I just fill the screw holes with that and float the rest of the floor or do I use something else to fill the screw holes? What would I use if that won't work.

Thanks in advance for your response guys.

Nobody knows what the hell you are talking about, and why would you be concerned about sunken screw-heads in a subfloor. What am I missing?

Filling screw holes


the subfloor was floated for the lino that was on before. I am putting starloc aspen slate floating floor on top. I would assume that eventually the flooring would dent down into the screw holes if they were not filled. am I right? what am I missing?

this should, I think and hope answer both the above questions.

Thanks

yeah Bud it is. overlapping edges that glue to each other, and you don't glue it to the subfloor.

Never heard of it but yes, fill the holes and seams. I think a Portland cement filler product would be in order.
