leveling a concrete floor


I need to level a 12'' x 24'' x1/4" area between the rooms at the door.
Can i use some Custom Building Products SpeedSet 25 lb. Fortified Thin-Set Mortar that i have left over for leveling ?
I am laying some vinyl sheet goods
is there a sortcut key for making fractions on the keyboard?

Don't use thinset under your vinyl--the finish will be to rough and transmit through the sheet goods.

Use a product like 'Feather Finish" by Ardex---that is available at all flooring stores and the Home Depot.

leveling a concrete floor


just curious .
when applying sheet goods over luan
does the adhesive "fill in" the dimples where I set the nails?
when i tried to fill them it looks like the filer creates more of a revese dimple than the nail head /screw head
