Help. Concrete overpour solution needed.


Had a ground rough replaced in a basement and poured concrete back in. Flooring installer came behind me and over-levelled the floor, in an effort to prep it for vinyl tile. He disappeared.
Now, I need to find a way to lower the level of the concrete in some areas... a means of sanding it down if you will.... Can anyone offer ideas on how this can be accomplished?

thank you

You can rent floor grinders/planers. Some attach to a vacuum for dust collection and control.

You're not going to like this, but probably the easiest & cheapest way to fix this is probably going to be tearing the patch out & starting from scratch.

Actually...I would say that would be the best-bet.
