laminate flooring ...


My landlord said when they installed the real wood flooring over concrete foundation in the living room, they had to level the floor first by putting something down like concrete ... I am about to pull up the carpet in the master and study and lay laminate flooring ... do I need to worry about leveling the floor? Do I need to put down a moisture barrier? The laminate already has padding ... do I need to add an underlayment?

The floor needs to be flat, not level, to put laminate on it. You do need a moisture barrier. You do not need an underlayment.
