Going back and forth between Ardex and self-leveler on my concrete subfloor. I dont recall you mentioning a reason to not use leveler, but would like to hear your thoughts. The concrete has residual carpet adhesive which will not come off, and I’d prefer to not have to mechanically remove it if possible. Does Ardex require a primer like self-leveler?
I feel like I’m going down the rabbit hole with my subfloor. Had the laminate 90% done, then tore up half to patch some areas. Put it back down, and it’s still soft in some spots. The first pic is the level on what must be a hump, which I originally thought was a “normal” spot with low areas on both sides.I’m guessing I need to take up the floor and grind that down? The floor drops to the right of the pic by 1/4 towards the garage door.
The 2nd pic is another area I’m chasing towards my patio door. The left edge of the level is where the laminate will meet tile. Should I build that up? I feel like the patching I have done in some areas has created high spots. I’m getting ready to bring the whole floor up and start over. ugh
