wood floor

I wanting to put a engineer wood floor or hard wood down in my 110 year old
house The floors not flat. I understand 3/8 in 10 ft is Ok but its more
in some areas. I raised the floor with floor jack where I can but there a few
spots I can't raise. What should I use shingle or floor leveling or any other suggestion? Should the vinyl floor come up or can I go over it.

wood floor

It's usually 3/16" in 10 feet...

Floor patch/levelling compound is usually the way to go.

Go over the vinyl if you can. Older vinyls can contain asbestos and it's best not to mess with them.
