Forum Title: How much will adhesive raise the floor height?
Is there a best guess on how much a flooring adhesive will raise the finished height of an engineered wood floor? Product is Taylors M+S and it's going to be applied to a self leveler. The finished height of the self leveler will need to be pretty accurate to achieve a 1 inch depth in which to install the wood floor. The wood floor is 3 1/4 engineered that's 3/4 thick. The back side of engineered is smooth and have no grooves like solid milled wood flooring. I'm trying to guess how much the adhesive will raise the finished height of the wood floor. I'm guessing about 3/32? Am I close?

When I was playing with some glue down Bruce flooring, I found it raised the floor between 1/16 and 1/8 inch once it was mushed and dried.

your best bet is to do an actual mock-up with the wood, adhesive and trowel notch other that that it's ballpark guessing so how accurate does this need to be never had adhesive thickness factor in------other than EYEBALL/ballpark feel you also need to accurately replicate substrate conditions if you can't use the actual floor to do a mock up
