Wood floor sadness...
Im trying to install Home Legend floating click lock wood floor in my kitchen(about 75sqft). When I was working on the plywood subfloor I noticed that two of the joists had sunk a bit causing a depression(about 5/16'' at its deepest point). I used roofing shingles per many opinions on the internet and used a string to flatten out the depression as best as I could. I put down the underlayment and laid the floor.
Now I have laid all the floor and here is my problem. When I walk on the floor I feel like it is giving a little bit as I step on it. Its not a lot, maybe 1/8'' give in the "squishiest" spots. This happens in random spots and is not specific to where the depression was. I only used strait planks and discarded the warped ones.
So my question is... Is this normal for the floor to give a little and its all in my head? Or is the most likely cause that the subfloor still isnt level? Or is there some other possible cause Ive never heard of?
It sounds like it is just common give in the floor. Just keep an eye on the joints to make sure they don't start working their way apart.
It's a floating floor..........it floats..............:)
You shimmed the subfloor with wood shims.............:whistling2:
I hate laminate "click" floors....they're like toystuff....
Even a laminate glue down or nail down would have given better results.....
Who ever came up with this crap should be shot...........sorry.....just my2¢
I'm sorry but he used roofing shingles.
