To reduce the appearance of surface floor when you install Vinyl, or any other flooring material a good choice to use is Luan. Luan, is a thin plywood underlayment that is light, and very simple to install. While Luan does help in smoothing out surface floor irregularities, it is not always the best solution for all flooring types.

Description of Luan
Luan is a quarter inch thick, and usually is delivered in 4 x 8 sheets. It is manfactured by stacking thin strips of mahogany at right angles then bonding them to form large panels. The panels have an abrasive side and a smooth side. The smooth side should be placed facing up, when using the material as an underlayment.
