Levelling Basement floor with Durabond
 
Hi,

I am a first time poster. I've seen many threads regarding Durabond, however, I did not see anything about using Durabond 90 to level sunken spots on my cement basement floor.

What do you think?

I know my floor has a vapour barrier below the slab and I have done a patch test and no condensation at all.

Will I be ok to use this product to bring up the level in certain places?

Thanks

Nah. Just use General Purpose Drywall Compound. It's easier to work with.

I hope this is a joke.

Actually, I am not trying to be funny at all. I know the bag itself says that you can use the product on above grade cement.

Any real thoughts please?

Perhaps I know nothing but I would like an explanation of what can go wrong with this idea.

Thanks.

BTW, we are talking about filling in differences of 1/8 and less.

Thanks.
