Customer Questions & Answers

Should I use metal lath with this product?

I plan to use this to level the plywood subfloor in our master bath. I anticipate product depth ranging from 1/2 inch to feather-edge. Should I use metal lath, and if so, what does one do to ensure that the lath doesn't stick out of the leveled surface if the lath is thicker than the leveled product (that is, at the edges)?
Asked by: Anonymous
If the subfloor is not solid, start with strengthening that first. Metal lath will give only a bit of strength, and the feather edge will be hard to bury it. If the floor is good and solid, you should have no need for it. Nothing you add to this will stop it from cracking if there is a good deal of movement.

How much dose it cost?

Asked by: Ronnie
It's roughly $33 per 50 lb bag, which will cover about 50 sq. ft at 1/8 in depth. Coverage depends on unevenness and roughness of the surface below it.

can this product be stained after it cures..seen it done on hgtv

Asked by: Anonymous
Dries unevenly in my experience. Quite inconsistant product. Staining would be problematic if a relatively even result is wanted.

How do you remove LevelQuik RS from primed Plywood?

Mixed up, in incorrect proportions and dried unevenly. Now the floor is unlevel - height is too high in some areas and low in others. Complete removal is needed.
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately there isn't anything that can be applied to it to soften it. You just need to use a hammer and chisel to break it up. When pouring LQ over plywood you are supposed to first tack down a metal lath, if you did that then the whole thing would have to be removed and you would start from scratch. If you didn't do that then i would strongly suggest that you do put down the metal lath before you do your second pour. Also, be sure to prime the plywood with the LQ Latex Primer. Thank You

I have a 9' 5' level slab. I need to create a sloped surface for drainage. Finished thickness from 2-1/4" at one corner to 5/8" at opposite corner. ??

Asked by: pink
This is NOT the product for you. This does the opposite as it makes the floor level. You need a product made for going over concrete with a bonding agent so it adheres.

How many layers of the underlayment can I use? And can it be used over a painted concrete floor?

Can this product be used over a painted concrete floor? Will I have to remove the paint? The paint is also chipped in places. In the instructions it says a second layer can be used but what if I need to do a third? How many layers can I do?
Asked by: P1553

LevelQuik RS 50 lb. Self-Leveling Underlayment is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 272.

After removing engineered hard wood from concrete i was left with construction adhesive that even a jackhammer would not remove. The bag says remove all adhesive before using but I had no choice. I can understand that with adhesive such as carpet adhesive that may break loose later and destabilize this underlayment however the adhesive i had wasn't going anywhere! This was my only option left and now I have beautiful floors. This can be poured so thin it won't mess up the level. Work fast though. It sets up quickly (5 minutes) to the point where it is harder to spread and isnt "self leveling" anymore. Work in small batches. Even 1/3 of a bag at a time was too much for me and I followed the water mixing instructions to the ounce.

But wow, the stuff creates an odor like you would not believe once it starts to set. Will chase you out of the house like finger nail polish remover does. Best thing to do it open the windows in that room and close the door and come back the next day. Other than the smell it work wonderfully, exactly what was needed. Glad I listened to the advice of the home depot employee who recommended it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flooring installer by trade As expected this stuff is junk thank god I'm really good at leveling with out the self leveling and that it was only one of my rentals and not a customers house next time I will wait and get ardex self leveling patch at least they put the proper mix ratio on the bag if you use this add more water than reccomended or just spend a little more and buy a better product

Is only workable for a few minutes after pouring, so if covering a large area, mix multiple bags in a cement mixer & add more water. Leveled an uneven 20x13 concrete pad; single-bag batches would skin over before all adjacent batches had been poured, making a border bump where different batches met. Redid with 3-bag pours from a cement mixer, using 6 quarts of water/bag to keep it workable longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works great We were very happy with the results. Used pea gravel to reduce the area volume. This is not an item you can order by the truck load like concrete. So it is expensive when you factor Labor to hand mix. The pea gravel cut the volume in half. For large areas that are 11/2" deep you can end up using ALOT of product. The pea gravel made a huge difference. This stuff seems to really work. The prep is critical

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff! I used Levelquik recently on a project. My wife and I remodeled our guest bathroom. I used a chipper hammer to rip up the old tiles and mortar. Unfortunately, I was a little too aggressive with the hammer and, upon completion, my old floor looked like the surface of the moon. We mixed up some Levelquik, applied it to the floor, spread it out and a few hours later, we had a nice, smooth floor to tile. The tile laid down easily and the thinset adhered to the new floor nicely. Great product. I'd definitely use it again and I definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from practice! many of these reviews are written by people inexperienced with the product..the stuff behaves according to the weather..mixing it wetter to make it self-level easier isn't going to reduce its integrity..a consistency of heavy cream is good..just do your job in two or three pours..don't ask it to turn a disaster into a smooth subfloor in one pour..use a mixing paddle and a good sized powerdriver and mix it well! ..pour the deep areas first..use common sense..and screed with appropriate tools and don't overdo it..it can't self-level if you keep messing with it!

I used a 2 foot wide squeegee initially, and this resulted in low spots of about 1/16 of an inch, requiring multiple iterations to get them even. I eventually switched to a 6 foot long level (protected with painters tape) to get a more level surface. If I were to do this again, I would use something 2/3 the width of the room to try and get a more level surface.
