I have seen it mentioned before but i cant seem to find the post. forgive me for asking this again.

Im laying laminate flooring down. i have a flexing spot in a small section of the floor (36x24 section) i remember seeing the mention to use shingles to fill in under the laminate to support it and stop it from flexing.

is this correct? is there any down falls to this method?
my subfloor is older hardwood floor that is in bad shape. i would need to basically lay a whole new subfloor, which cost more than i can afford.
so the idea of using a leveling compound would be out of the question as the liquid would seep through the spaces in the subfloor.

any other thoughts and suggestions is appreciated
