  1. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    Hi everyone! I’m in the process of laying new floor in in my basement. After pulling up the carpet from the previous owner it became apparent from all the dips and unevenness of the cement floor underneath that I would need to use self leveler before installing my laminate. I primed the floor...

    Hi there, We recently ripped up our old carpeting and OSB underlayment to find 2" x 8" plank subfloor. Overall the subfloor is in pretty good condition. We also just laid down new 1/2" plywood underlayment with a 1/8" expansion gap. In the next couple of weeks we plan to lay down new vinyl...

    I have dug myself a deep hole and need major advice before moving forward with flooring. I used TEC EZ Level 323 Self Leveling Underlayment and aside from it being not flat, it has developed hairline spiderweb type cracks over the whole pour. Background: Doing a remodel on our one and only...

    Hi there. You seem very knowledgeable and I've read some of your posts. I have two bathrooms. One is a series of three room where I already helped someone pour self-leveling compound. Over a ~short period of time there was one long hairline crack which several of us believed was just due...

    I am redoing the floor on a basement slab. There is an existing stuck down (mastic) vinyl tile which is decent but, because some new drains were laid, it is missing in some places. The concrete over the new drains is adequate. I want to use SLC to restore a flat surface for new vinyl mastic...

    I need some advice on what my next best option is to fixing the problem I created. An explanation on what I did. First, I put down 1/4" cork, then stapled down radiant heat mat, and then poured self leveling concrete over it. The problem I created was that I saw a few spots were the radiant...

    Hello all, we are in the process of remodeling our 7'X7' bathroom. I ripped out the old subfloor, replaced a number of joists, and now have 3/4 t&g plywood subfloors with 3/8th inch plywood as an underlayment. The house is 60 years old and the subfloor despite our best efforts has a ridge in the...

    My laundry room flooded due to an exterior leak and I had to pull up the vinyl. Under it I found up to 1.25" of wet, mildewed, compromised, putty-like SLC. Below it is another layer of vinyl with the top layer removed that was glued to the slab. It would seem that the builder tried to get away...

    Here is the SHORT version of my question- Can you skim coat with Henry 547 over Hendry 555 or 565? And how dry does it need to be? can you do it before the full dry time or do we have to wait and prime first? THANKS FOR ANY HELP! So we have spent many many hours, lots of blood, sweat and tears...
