    Hi
    I've removed the hearth which was bedded on cement and this area is lower than the floor boards.
    What should I use to bring this up to the level of the adjacent boards?
    Will I need any membrane over this area or will the normal foam underlay be sufficient?

    Thanks in advance

    Cement and then membrane, then underlay.

    Thanks - does it need to be a full blown membrane or will a sheet of heavy duty plastic do?

    I'd imagine heavy duty plastic will do the job, just don't cover the wood area at all.
