Leveling a floor.


I'm leveling a 2' x 3' area by 3/16's of an inch and the leveling mix I'm using says to put a screen down, but I don't think it's necessary for that depth.
To use or not to use? Answers appreciated.

I'm putting it over plywood and the name of the mix is Level Quik.

Level Quick does not require a screen in this application. Just be sure to use the realted primer, don't forget that, it's important.

That application will take less than a half of a bag, so adjust your material and water accordingly.

I put the Level Quik Latex Primer on this morning after cleaning and removing any dust that was on the floor, so now I'm going to pour the leveler on tonight. Thanks for your advise.

Make sure that you have sealed any holes or cracks---that stuff will flow through some small openings--
