Asphalt shingles under laminate fllooring
Not sure if this is the place to ask, but I'm putting a laminate floor in an old house with uneven floor surface. I have read where asphalt shingles work great for shimming up low spots. I have been laying down the shingles, and they work good for leveling. I have not fastened the shingles down, but my question is about the gritty noise from the mineral used on top of the shingles. I laid down a piece of OSB on the shingles for an experiment, before putting down laminate. It makes a crunching sound when walked on. Anyone here have experience with this kind of thing?
