Now that I have installed Pergo XP laminate flooring I've discovered that there is a soft spot from the doorway which transitions from the kitchen into the dining room. When walking into the dining room the floor is spongy, and there is probably a 1/8" play.
I do not want to pull up all the laminate because this would require pulling up the laminate in entire the dining room, as well as the front part of the foyer (I managed to get all three areas linked together with no transitions).
I was thinking I could simply cut one of the boards in the doorway between the dining room and kitchen (much like you would if it was damaged). With this board removed I could just pull up the first few rows in the dining room, just enough to put some feather finish in.
Is this even worth it? We rarely use the dining room, but it is right in front of the doorway to the kitchen, so no matter what you will notice when walking between the two rooms (though the wife claims she barely can tell).
Or do I need to pull the entire laminate up from the foyer and dining room and not risk cutting any boards?
