I have some brand new laminate that I need to install, the old subfloor was exposed after the horrid carpet was removed and it is composed of ceramic tile (I think) over old concrete and is fairly uneven in some areas and cracked along the edges in some places from removing the carpet which was stapled through a piece of wood directly into the tile.
I was wondering if I used a self leveling compound such as LevelQuik RS Self-Leveling Underlayment, If I would need anything else between the LevelQuik and the laminate flooring, foam underlay, vapour barrier etc.
Also would this be the best product to use?
Sorry about all the white crap on the floor, haven't washed all the drywall compound off the ground yet, still doing that haha.
I'm not real big on Custom products but you have the right idea. I'd recommend priming with Mapei Primer T and leveling with Mapei Ultraplan 1 Plus. What you are looking at is a rapid set and may give you less open time than a regular SLC.
Once the leveler is poured and set you still need pad and vapor barrier. An all-in-one pad with the barrier attached and pretaped edges would work fine.
