Question

Concrete Floor Repair


I have a concrete floor which has a number of holes ranging from small to larger (3-4cm).

Can I simply mix up some concrete and fill it in? I'm going to be putting an underlay and carpet down on top.

Thanks for any advice.

Use a vinyl patching cement or Feather Finish----regular concrete is to corse to use for patching--

Thanks for the quick response.

Would it matter if I'm just using it to fill when an underlay and then a carpet it being put over it?

Could you recommend a product?

Go to the flooring section and look for 'Feather Finish' --by Ardex---that is a nice one,although a bit pricey--

Any vinyl concrete patch should work for filling small holes under carpet---so the choice is yours.

Feather Finish is available at the Home Depot---and most tile stores.

Concrete Floor Repair


First, Chip the surface of the concrete to remove any high material, and to create a rough surface for the repair cement mixture to bond to. For small jobs, a chipping hammer will be all you need, but larger repairs are much easier with an electric chipping hammer or even a jack hammer.

Then, Clean the dust and debris from the area you have chipped. This will allow the new material to have a solid surface to adhere to. After that,mix the cement/sand material you will use to fill in the area you have chipped out.

Add a latex or polymerized liquid bonding agent to the dry sand/cement mixture, using enough to thoroughly wet the material and bring it to a stiff, plastic consistency. Note that some bonding agents are applied directly to the area to be patched, like glue, so follow the instructions on the manufacturer's label.

I think this will help you
Thanx
