basement flooring project

Since it's a basement - and not a kitchen or bathroom that takes wetness frequently - I don't think it'll be a problem.

I'd give it extra time to set and cure, though - before you grout and seal.


At this present moment in time I am making cabinets for the kitchen - just in case you wanted to know what I'm doing when I'm not around.

WOOT - what's this?
I went to mark my floor for spots to be filled with leveler and found the entire
thing perfectly level and flat - no dips, no dimples - just perfection
Where're the paddles! Shock me!

Must be something wrong !

Leave them in "As Is" If one comes loose then pull it up and glue it down with construction adhesive. Congrats on the level floor.

Thanks for the info. I definitely appreciate it. I feel extra dumb because the contractors who just finished installing my bathroom left a bag of thinset in my garage...hadn't even noticed it. I used it last nite to repair some tiles that were uneven. Mixing was easy and it was actually easier to apply than the bucket variety. I'll be using it for my next project definitely.

Thanks again.
