LevelQuik RS question


Hi,
I've installed plenty of tile around the house but I've never used a self leveling compound before. I bought the LevelQuik RS based on good reviews.

Everything seems pretty straight forward, but there's one thing I'm wondering about. How to I protect the edges around the subfloor (plywood) and how do I go about the toilet flange? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks a lot!

Marcus

LevelQuik RS question


Please specify foam? Regular insulation foam, or tape? (Looks like bond breaking tape).

Thanks for your help!!

OK sorry, I guess you can't tell by just the photo. I thought a bell would go off in your head.

There's many types, any will work. How about 1/2" self-stik foam, the kind you might use to insulate an old door? They come in many widths, you choose.
