Question

using over a mud bed in rough surface shape

I put in a mud bed 3/4 inches thick and I'm not happy with it being level and the finished texture. Can I use this pro level over the cured mud bed. Do I need to use the primer over the mud bed before using pro level?

Hi Jimbo,

You may use our Pro Level product over a mud bed application. You'll want to be sure to sweep up any sand and grit left behind after it's been allowed to dry. Silicone around the perimeter of the room and around any areas that the leveler could leak through. Prime the surface with 2 coats of the Pro Primer to allow for appropriate bond.

Thank you!

Hi Rod,

We figure approximately 20 square feet per bag at a 1/4" pour. When determining how many bags you'll need, always grab an extra bag or two so that you don't run in any unforeseen issues that result in you running short in the middle of the project.

Thank you!

Question

basement floor prep

I am adding a bathroom in my basement and have removed the carpet which was installed with a yellow adhesive.

My question is how much of the glue do I need to remove before applying the Pro Level? I have scrapped about 90-95% of it off, and the surface is nice a smooth but not the natural concrete look (there is a very thin layer remaining).

After cleaning it good can I just prime it and then pour? The area is only about 90 sq feet and I plan on installing some tile from the The Tile Shop.

Thanks....

Hello Waldo,

As long as the area is as clean as you can possibly get it and nothing will come up any more from that surface, you're essentially ready to use the product. Do apply a couple of coats of the primer to the surface before you begin using the leveler. Once set, proceed with the leveler,

Thank you!

Hi Thorvald,

Yes the Pro Level can be applied directly over plywood. The wood does need to be primed with the Pro Primer before hand. This seals the wood for better adhesion of the self leveler. Also a metal lath should be nailed down to the plywood for extra strength. I've attached a few links below.

Thanks,

Hi Bill,

When pouring multiple layers of the self leveling material, it is important to prime each surface to ensure the proper bond. You want to wait long enough for the last pour to dry before applying additional layers above--typically 24 hours but temp and humidity can alter that somewhat.

Thank you!

Hello kman,

It is highly recommended to use any type of "mud" based floor installation or self leveling system on a 3/4" plywood subfloor that has been properly primed and accompanied with wire or plastic lath.

Thank you!

Hello Diane!

The 1/4" square notch trowel would work fine for a 13x13 or 14x14 inch tile. Just be sure that if you are the one troweling your own mortar, that you hold your trowel as vertical as possible, avoid using it at an angle to prevent less mortar from being applied. Also go back and check your coverage as you go. Flip up a tile here and there as you work and check the back of the tile to be sure that there is 95% coverage or better. These tips I have just suggested would be true for any tile project, regardless off the trowel size versus tile size.

Thank you!

Hi SteveS!

You will pour 5.25 quarts of ROOM TEMPERATURE water into a 6 gallon pail. Add one bag of Pro level to the water and then mix for 2 minutes with your mixer bar.
