I need to level my second floor game room so that I can install Bamboo flooring. I would like to glue the flooring down. Would I be able to do that if I use this product to level the sub-floor?

Wood floors within wood structures experience movement with changes in temp, moisture and settlement.
In my 42 years of installing floors I have found a lot of fractured floor patches under existing floor covering.
Remember, any glued down floor covering is only as stable as the very next surface to which it is glued.
New wood floors also need to be installed according to specs of spacing and flatness. Plus you need to be sensitive to the direction of joists and unique conditions of the existing floor covering.
Removal of existing floor covering (and usually it's underlayment) is an extra effort but just may be the quickest way to do a long lasting job.
Unlike any other feature in any room, the floor is always in use . You may get away with short cuts on the walls and ceiling but not on your walking surface. TomTee Read Less

Answer: 
As long as the floor leveler is dry and free of debris, you can place urethane-based bamboo glue directly over it.

547 25 lb. Universal Patch and Skimcoat is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bonding to slab! I used several bags to flatten my living room floor for laminate flooring. Then I discovered spots that were hollow sounding when tapped with a chisel. Each day more spots developed until it now looks like I will have to pull it all up and start over. Even though I used an angle grinder over the entire floor it apparently was not enough. The floor has to be roughened pretty good. Also, make sure the floor is as clean as a dinner plate before starting. It doesn't take much to break the bond. Also, it will work better if a skim coat of Henry 549 is applied first. It bonds better to concrete. It would be advisable to go to WW Henry's website for the PDF instructions on the 547. They are a little different to those on the back of the package, ie: dampening the slab before applying. I think Custom Building Products are better, but HD doesn't carry their Skim Coat and Patch Cement Underlayment in the store near me and I don't see it on their website. Their SpeedFinish is a good product , but more expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not to shabby Good product when you can't get your hands on Feather Finish from Ardex. I'm a Ardex user but this will work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great This stuff worked great to flatten out my osb floor. Had some deep valleys and this stuff filled them up and dried fast. Mixed it in five gallon bucket with my drill and dumped it on the floor. I then used a 2x4 to screed it and level my floor. It had some ridges and bumps in it from incomplete mixing and the screening, but I just let the stuff set up for like 45 minutes and then scraped the high spots with a flat blade trowl. Now it is perfectly smoothe...and FLAT!!! This stuff sets up quick so be ready to rock and roll once it is all mixed up...when your done rinse your bucket with your hose outside while it is still wet....once it is dry it's like concrete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked exactly as described. It's wrong to call the Ease of Installation 'poor'. The very nature of this product makes installation difficult. There's no way around that. It takes proper equipement to mix it, apply it, level it. But - the results are first rate, the curing time reliable and the finished substrate absolutely ideal for further processing. I've used this product before, always with success. All Henry products are more expensive than the competition. They also work exactly as described. I've never once had a call-back because a Henry product failed. That's worth the extra cost. I can't pretend, though, that installation is for anyone who doesn't want to read and follow instructions exactly. Nor is it a task for someone without a fair amount of muscle. I'm in my fifties and have been doing this for decades. If you're a novice, I'd definitely ask a woman or man who's done it before to guide you or you may well learn why the Romans built with cement. It's forever. Right or wrong.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not for leveling a concrete floor For patching and filling cracks when you want to feather the product it is fine as long as you work quickly. When mixing larger amounts for leveling a floor forget it. I used the product to water ratio and a paddle mixer with a drill. It was difficult to mix well in the bucket and was very difficult to get spread evenly before getting even more difficult to work with. If you are new to attempting to level a concrete floor with peaks and valleys, this product is not for you.
