 o
self-leveler to rapair damaged subfloor?

I just had a flooring estimate done for a small 12x12 laundry room. We selected a floating stainmaster fiberglass backed vinyl floor.

We have a small, irregular area of damage in the subfloor, no larger that 3" at it's widest point. The flooring guy said self-leveling compound would work for this repair.

Is this acceptable? Other suggestions for this repair? Thanks!

A self leveler to me is the wrong description. But a portland based patch to fill the void and make it basically level or if it is a high spot, then to dissipate it out. since you say three inches wide and I visualize a void that needs patched and it will be fine for a floating vinyl. Should be a very inexpensive repair....
