I've just installed 2- 5'x5' wafer board 1/2 inch sheets in the center of my kitchen floor. I cut the existing floor using a circular saw and removed the underlayment, sheet vinyl and green slate that was underneath (built in 1954). I cut the center of the floor leaving about a foot around the perimeter of the center 5'x10'new floor, so I didn't have to rip out the whole kitchen floor. When I cut and installed the sheets some areas between the wafer sheets and existing underlayment,have gaps. Should I use Henry 547 underlayment patch to fill in those gaps around the floor. My lines weren't cut perfect, so the sheets and existing floor aren't butted against each other. the gaps range from 1/8 - 1/2

Dear Foliv,
First, what type of floor are you planning to install? Are your joists underneath sturdy? By wafer board, do you mean OSB? The more info you pass on, the more we can assist you. Remember, the info you get from us depends on the info you give. Crystal balls are a myth my friend. However, If you look at the Misc. section, I opened a Yahoo Group just for us. You can post pictures, plans, or whatever to help us "see" what your problem or question is. It's free and takes less than 5 minutes to sign up and I believe it will help us all.
