    Hi

    I am a about to put some new flooring down. I currently have uneven floorbaords.

    1. If I am to put laminate, will a laminate underlay be sufficient to negate the bad effects of the uneven floorbaords?

    2. If I use vynil, I take it I must use 6mm plywood underneath the vynil? Also do I have to glue it down to the plywood?

    3. I have heared about removable vynil tiles but cannot find any resources on them, can someone point me to them. Do these need plywood underneath and can you just pick them up like click laminates?

    I can speak from experiance with laminate on uneven floor boards. The process I used for mine was:

    - First Nail/screw any loose floor boards back to the joist or nuggins (insert support if required and be careful to avoid any pipes or cabling).

    - Pack any gaps of 3mm or greater.

    -Use a thicker laminate underlay.
