Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoJo 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.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie 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.

Easy to use instructions, product as described, and years of uneven floors are behind me. Fabulous product, and very very durable.

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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SecretAgentAbe Easy To Use but not meant for Asbestos Tile Floors
I bought this product to go over a worn out asbestos tile from the 1950's. This stuff is easy to mix and apply and did an amazing job leveling out my floor. The problem was it started to peal up the next day. I called the company's tech support department and they confirmed that their product is not designed to work on asbestos tile. Even if I had used their primer product (which I didn't) it still wouldn't work according to Tech Support
t wish their bag and or web site said this product can't be used on Asbestos. The downside is I bought and applied over 7 bags of this stuff. And granted now I can't get my money back.
If I had a concrete or wood subfloor to level I would surely use this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mgleason83 Works really well
I used this to transition between the old part of our home and the addition which was about 1/2" lower going from wood to concrete. It took about 8 bags to spread the transition out about 8ft long and 12ft wide. We covered everything with laminate flooring and now it looks great and you can't tell it was ever off and there are no soft spots on the floor, it's totally solid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jose Excellant self leveling cement
After looking at the reviews over the other popular product, this had lesser poor reviews so I gave this a try. I also bought the Henry 554 and applied over 360 sqft of space. Poured a total of 10 bags of Henry 555. Using a 10 gallon plastic garbage can, Here's how I went about it after watching the video several times. The interior temperature was about 65F and the floor temperature was about 60F in the basement I mixed a small quantity to even out the recessed crevices at the base and waited for it to dry. Having certain I'll be able to mix the Henry 555 without any unmixed cement stuck in the crevices, I proceeded to mix 2 bags with 10 qts of water. I used the metal paddle from HD and a 1/2 inch corded drill and mixed everything until it was consistent. It didn't need 2-3 minutes as they recommended, probably about 1.5 minutes. I poured half of the mixture and rolled it with a 20" wide spiked roller that I purchased online. It was extremely useful as the anti splash also worked as a gaged spreader while the spikes on the roller took care of the surface tension to allow the mixture to flow evenly and feather the edges between pours.
