- Here and Now
I am doing a floating luxury Vinyl plank job in my home.When searching for Thinset as a floor leveler a lot Of places says it’s ok if less than 3/8” or so. After watching a YouTube video Last weekend I used Maipei Ultraflex 1 as a skim coat leveler for 8-10 small areas (1/4” - 3/8”) on my concrete floor that had carpeting previously. I guess I was trying to save some money vs Henry 549. I found out how gritty and sandy Thinset was Vs. Henry 549. I need to grind down some edges of the Thinset this weekend as it does not feather as well. Does anyone think these patches will pose any problem under a floating floor? Or should the patches be ground back down to the cement? (Have a cup grinder) It may just be me being paranoid but the area is 300-350 sq ft and as always patches are in the middle of room. I completed another small room but had used Henry 549 to level small areas and will spend the extra money going forward. Just glad I only did some small areas and that it s easier to correct.
