How to level your concrete Subfloor
To have a good solid floor the Subfloor level is a very important factor .
We urge Fundi’s not to install any type of Floor covering Materials on an uneven Subfloor .
Uneven floor are the reason your PERGO laminate /LVT floor is bouncing whenever you walk on it and after some times the joints will unlock .
Ceramic tiles will have uneven grouts joints , some will leave air bubble or even crack , during installation a lot of tile adhesive , cement is used up to level .
Mkeka wa mbao BEAUFLOR Vinyl flooring laid loose will form bubble underneath and eventually it will crease .
Epoxy flooring will start cracking over time .
It’s very simple to check a subfloor surface level as DIY using a two meter straight strip it can be metal based strip ETC .
The conventional way to level a subfloor is two hack that subfloor and apply new coat of mortar , this conventional way is tedious in labor and again you will wait close to a week or more while watering it for the subfloor to cure 😩
At Floor Decor we are using self leveling compound it can be sika brand or kenbro no need for hacking within 24 hrs your floor is smooth , well leveled and dry 😊.
