RE: Leveling a particle board kitchen floor

Hi, Plywood is good idea,so is sub floor type plywood. T&G style is best and covering with 1/4 luan is good plan. while you have floor opened up check to see if floor joists are not fractured, if they are you will have to repair this before you lay in new floor. best of luck in remodeling your floor.
