Unlevel floor under laminate
 
Hey guys,

I'm getting ready to lay a floating floor in a kitchen which is about 9x10. However, I checked it with a 4 foot level an there is one joist that is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch high.

Can I run the laminate parrell with the joist to get the t&g to compensate for the joist?

The floor needs to be level or the flooring will eventually come apart. You can either use a leveling compound or see why that one joist is sticking up and see if you can fix that.

Thanks Hammatime. That's what I was afraid of....
