    Regarding the dips that we are considering on the concrete slab in preparation of laying vinyl plank – including the 3/4 inch dip in the kitchen near the garage door

    We washed the floor and the water filled the dips so it seems we could level these areas pretty easily .

    Should we level these small variations and if yes, since it is covered in mastic what should we use to fill them ?

    Use Ardex Feather Finish and nothing else. NO SUBSTITUTES! This is the only product I trust to stick to cut back adhesive.

    Hi Joe

    Been thinking about this dip and maybe I just fill it and add a threshold

    As noted in the video

    Are there any downsides to this?

    the plan was to run the floor directly into the laundry room without threshold – but a threshold , I guess , is not really a big deal


    Tried to attach video but typo big

    So here is the Apple video link

    As you can see I spray painted the floor to highlight the dip
