One has to be careful with Ring shanks, yrs ago in my own house used r/s with commercial Armstrong flooring , did not skim coat the floor and after a while could see every nail spot.

I should clarify, if it's visibile, it's probably because it was nailed flush and then the wood subfloor shrank or compressed.

See post #10 pretty much the norm under vinyl/linoleum and any time you needed a smooth substrate.

I've never seen anything but crown staples, I hate it when luan comes up in pieces and all the staples are still in the subfloor.

Dash patch was always recommended to cover joints and fasteners to prevent visual flashing

Underlay should never be glued. It can cause humps. Same for screws, it can cause puckers. I have used ringshanks and staples. Both work fine. Both will warranty.

Always used under sheet vinyl or there is no warranty.
