levling rough basement slab
I am setting up some woodworking tools down in my basement, and I want to level the floor a little bit. I want to know if the Henry floor leveling compound is better to use, or if I should use thinset. I don’t really want to level, I want to smooth more than anything. Just to have a smoother surface to roll my machines around on. So the wheels roll better.
How about an acrylic admix? Or cold water? What will be stronger? I want to epoxy paint over everything. Any thoughts?
Hmmm, thinking outside the box, I really would opt for better wheels on my tools. Really, I think the bond will be weak and you'll have cracks and spalling in a very short time.
Epoxy paint, sure, but I'm not too sure about any sort of leveling compound.
Yea, I want a strong bond! My wheels are good, my floor is bad. The old parts of the floor are about 100 years old. They are really rough and "sandy", and the newer sections have small gravel aggregate poking out in some random places. I don't need to hit the whole floor, just a few trouble spots. Yea, I have seen acrylic floorpaint fail when put down over a bad drywall mud patch. Just what I don't want to see!
