    Hi Joe,

    See video for a couple updates and questions.

    Key points in video

    – I’ve decided to put the planks over the tile. I’m concerned that removing the tile in the rest of the house will leave me an even bigger concrete prep job.

    – Living room slab will need some work to flatten, i.e., grinding, filling

    – Living room slab is out of level by about ½” to 5/8” (high on dining room side, low on pony wall side)

    – I didn’t mention in the video, but I have decided to tackle the stairs as a separate project likely using hardwood treads as you recommended

    Summary of questions

    a) Your thoughts on my hiring a concrete grinding company for living room slab?

    b) Recommendations for products to fill low spots in slab?

    c) Recommendations for board product to raise height of living room slab, i.e., OSB + vapor barrier, concrete board, foam board, other?

    d) Recommendations on mechanically fastening boards to slab – Tapcon, powder actuated nails?

    Thank you,
