Viewing Project in Floors > Wood > Leveling
how much would you estimate it costs to do the leveling starting with the sub floor?
Hi,enjoyed the video as I'm planning similar for my basement but would one be better off putting the vapor barrier on the concrete (after leveling) as opposed to on top of the plywood Dri-Core squares? It seems with it on top, moisture in the plywood Dri-Core could be trapped between it's dippled plastic bottom and vapor barrier?
RON HOW DID YOU INSULATE THE SIDE WALLS FROM THE POURED CONCRETE LEVELER. FROM THE VIDEO IT SEEMED THAT THE CONCRETE HIT THE DRY WALL AND SLURPED UNDERNEATH THE WOOD ON THE INSIDE WALL. IF THIS IS TRUE THAT THIS WILL LEAD TO ROT AND MOLD......YET IT LOOKS LIKE YOU AFFIXED SOMETHING TO BOTTOM OF THE DRY WALL....
Any type of material that can be used on old concrete driveways that are a little weather-worn?
what was the cost ?? nice job.
I HAVE BATHROOM IN MY BASEMENT & I HAD WOOD FLOOR IN THAT I LEVEL WITH SHIMS. IT DID NOT LAST I PUT THIS IN. I THEN PUT DOWN HEATED FLOOR WIRES. I THEN LAYED TILE DOWN. IT WAS THE BEST FLOOR JOB I EVER DID.
I guess you got tired of letting us know about how much a project costs eh? Bummer for me because getting started on something this always starts with thinking about how much $ I will need to actually finish.
very nice,,, but same question as brian, how do you level a old hard wood floor. Without removing the old floor? The old hard wood floor is to rough to sand and refinish and not level. thanks for your tips
What's the point of "fixing" the defects in the leveling material, considering the overlying materials and moisture barrier? Further, why apply the leveling agent at all, again considering the over-lying sub-base you've applied? Does the floor really need to be level? And, it seems that you always have perfectly square rooms. How to you do that?
Always enjoy your video tips every Sunday morning.
You must have a solid surface to pour the self leveling product onto if you don't want it to move and crack. Wood is flexible so I cannot recommend pouring the product on top of wood as it will eventually crack.
Good luck with your project,
