Installation of Luan Underlayment

Installation of Luan Underlayment

Calculate space which will require the Luan underlayment, then cut out exisiting subfloor so you can fit the luan underlayment, and then the completed flooring. This is eliminate the need for further cuts when you are at the end of the project, and give you a more seamless appearance.

Install the sheets of luan in such a way as to ensure they are arranged in perpendicular fashion to the subfloor seams. Use a large piece of luan board if possible, then cut the board as required to fill the space. Allow for 1/4" space between the underlayment and walls or door spaces.
Install Luan with staples to the subfloor plywood using 1/2" staples. You should staple every 6 inches around the edges and every 8 inches at the centre of the plywood boarding. At this point you have the choice to make as to whether you wish to use glue to adfix the luan to the plywood subflooring.
Once this has been completed, you can sand all the seams so that they become level, and then any gaps or spaces, you can use high grade filler (wood) or otherwise, as recommended by the maker to finish the surface before installing top floor.
