We are attempting to level a floor in a 100yr old commercial building. The space is to become a commercial kitchen. It looks like we will need to fill at least 2" to bring to level.

Answer: 
I've applied this in areas that were several inches (3 1/2") low. I would suggest using OSB board in those low areas (adhere with subfloor adhesive and then screws) before applying leveler. That will save you a ton of money as the Henry's self leveler is rather expensive but worth it.

I have a 5x5 area in the middle of my kitchen that is sagging. Arrpox 1 inch dead in the center and 1/2 inch meeting up with the assisting floor. I have linolium on the floor now but in the that sagging area i have peeled up the linoliuim and it is a wood type underlayment. I would be applying this level pro that wood sagging area. would this work to make it even with the rest of my floor. And if so can you pour this stuff over the old linolium on the floor if needed to blend it into the area I would be applying this too. Or do you have any ideas of what I could do. thank you

Answer: 
IF you don't have worse problems with underlying structure, adding a half-inch thick piece of MDF or plywood would probably be much cheaper than using just a leveler like this.

Answer: 
I think you have far more going on there. Floor joists can't be more than 24" on center. You apparently have some structural damage. I wouldn't do anything until you had someone check out what is going on under there. Adding more weight to the area could be disastrous.

Answer: 
Make sure you rough up that vinyl floor before pouring Henry's.
A belt sander with an 80 grit belt should do nicely.
Best to remove the floor first.
Use the priming directions on the package and prime first.

Answer: 
Henry self leveler suggests using a liquid prep of slippery surfaces so that the leveler doesn't crumble or slide off the surface. I believe it comes in a 1qt bottle and should be located near the actual floor leveler.
I didn't use this over some "filler pieces" of laminate wood and the leveler slid off and cracked over those pieces. I wish I would have used the prep liquid!

Answer: 
You want to cover 10X the area of one bag (so you need 40 bags to cover 400 SF to 1/8" thick.
But, you want to pour a layer 1/2" deep or 4X the 1/8" minimum. So you need 4X as many bags. Hence, you need 160 bags to fill such a large volume. Purchase 10 bags extra and return what you don't use. You don't want to run short during the pour.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Use over Vinyl Flooring! Our kitchen floor has three different coverings on it--bare subfloor, places where the homeowner tried to level it years ago, and sheet vinyl. There was nothing on the bags or these reviews that said "don't use over vinyl" so we just primed and used the LevelPro over everything. Where it was wood or even the existing self-leveler, it worked GREAT. Where it was over vinyl we got huge bubbling and warping. We have to break it up and pull it up, including the vinyl, and do it over. But we WILL do it over using the same product because it works like it's supposed to when you use it over wood. For 160 square feet of kitchen we ended up using 12 bags and 4 people. It went very quickly. June 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pour it Screed it then leave it alone I used this on a floor that was scarred from removing linoleum. I bought some soccer shoes to walk on it while wet. I used a 3' piece of 1 x 4 with staples stiicking out 1/4" as a screed. I did as the video showed and used a squeegy to smooth it out after screeding. After it was dry i check afew places for level and every where that I touched it with the squeegee I had to sand or fill with thinset. If I ever use it again I will pour it , screed it then leave it alone. good Product !!!! July 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by For best chance of success, come prepared Used three bags of this to try to level my 123 sq ft home office. Depending on project size, be sure you have enough man power to get this properly mixed, poured, and spread. My father and I did not have any additional help. Either we didn't mix it long enough or we didn't use enough water. Some tips online suggest to add the powder to the water a little at a time as you mix it. Had we had another person to do this and hold the bucket (It spun out of control and flung product all over my bathroom - but I will say it wipes up easily), I think it would have mixed better. The 10 minute set up time makes it ridiculous to try to mix and apply. The good thing is that you can pour one section, let set up, prime the adjacent edge and pour another section. I think we would have been better off had we done this also. Also .... Frog Painters Tape is not a good tape to use to cover seams/holes. We had areas pucker up and crack the product. Might be a better practice to caulk the holes or seams before priming. January 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Henry's Self leveling Underlayment Easy to use instructions, product as described, and years of uneven floors are behind me. Fabulous product, and very very durable. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a great product I only had a small 3' X 7' area to fill over the mat and wiring of a heated bathroom floor. I laid Hardiboard around the perimeter to keep a scree board flat. Easy mixing in a plastic waste basket (I was too cheap to purchase a 5 gallon bucket) using a paddle in my cordless drill. Poured out the mix (you only have 10 minutes before it begins to set). The instructions predicted a pancake consistency with 5 quarts of water but it seemed a bit runnier than that. All turned out well as the material flowed smoothly and dried very flat. The schree board helped move the mix down the area to uncovered areas, but was not that necessary. I was about 10 pounds shy of my goal and had to run to the local Ace Hardware for a 10 pound pail of a different brand. That material mixed easier (1/4 the volume too) but did not flow as well, but seemed to mix with my 50 minute old pour. The Henry product produced a better and very level floor. June 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Henry Floor leveler works great I used about 25 bags of this leveler at my cottage to remedy several rooms with uneven floors. It's easy to mix with a 5 gallon bucket, garden hose and mixing paddle. I found that mixing it to the consistency of cake mix works best. Pour it at the top of the slanted floors and let it "self level" to the lower part of the room. I would suggest using OSB boards on the floor first if you're trying to raise the floors more than 1 1/2". That way, you won't use as much leveler because it's fairly expensive compared to other levelers. May 3, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by floor leveler....can be good I just talked to my knowledgeable floor installers about this product. Since it is cement based...they said do NOT use on raised wood floors because it breaks/crumbles. That make sense...since wood floors flex. May 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product I'm no carpenter, but I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me. Follow directions and you will get a solid level floor. Extra help is a plus, and a heavy duty drill. April 26, 2016
