new laminate. ...self leveling compound from room with linoleum?

Ok...let's see if I can explain this so it is understandable. ...lol

Getting ready to install new wood laminate floor.
I will be installing a premium blue underlayment. Then laminate that has cork on bottom.

I have one bedroom that has linoleum (I think) but it's sticky kind that was glued down.Messy and still sticky underneath. (Can't remember what's called...but nasty stuff)
But this floor is .....I would guess ....1/16" thick. (Just checked....and like literary a "hair" thicker than a nickle)(5 cents nickle)

From bedroom with this linoleum to hallway (which all this is on a concrete slab)
I was thinking of laying down a skim of self leveling compound out about 1-2 feet.
Then underlayment....then laminate.

Would or can this work with a floating laminate flooring???

I really do NOT to have to tear up this floor...

Use a transition strip at the doorway between the bedroom and the hallway. That will take care of your height differences as you will not even notice it. Breaking up the laminate also helps control expansion and contraction issues that can happen over longer runs.

Advise that you follow the manufacturers installation instructions with regard to your blue underlayment. If the product already has a cork cushion on the bottom of the planks, additional sound deadening underlayment may not be needed or advised.
