What Primer Should Be Used For Floor Levelling?
There are different Primers for different subfloors and different situations in the Floor Levelling world. There are also quite a few different brands such as:
– And more!
Primers are used for pre-treating floors and are often applied prior to Floor Levelling materials or floor adhesives, to create a base and assure good bonding of upper floor layers. Primers are typically applied by trowel and roller, and an adequate method can be chosen depending on the subfloor quality. Sika, Mapei, and Ardex provide Primer products, that are suitable for a wide range of needs.

What Is A Liquid Screed?
Ardit Liquid Flowing Screeds are a blend of a binder, special additives, and aggregates, mixed with water to produce a Self Leveling, flowing Screed which can be accurately pumped into place. Liquid Screeds are designed to provide a smooth, level surface prior to the application of floor finishes or to be polished, ideal for both commercial and domestic buildings. Liquid Flowing Screeds can be used bonded, unbonded, or floating and with or without underfloor heating.
Liquid Screeds have great thermal conductivity and can help spread underfloor heating across the floor, making the build more energy efficient. Easier to level, Liquid Screeds can be set to thin or thick, meaning fewer resources are used and, again, less energy is required during production.
Liquid Screeds Are Best for Extra Strength and Higher Depths
When dealing with floor depths in excess of 75mm, or for structural floors, Liquid Screeds are able to recommend the use of a cement-based Liquid Screed solution which can be pumped applied, and laser leveled for a precise floor finish. Sometimes referred to as flowing concrete, this solution can eliminate the need to power float concrete on site, dependent on project specification.
– Bonded liquid screed thickness minimum would be 15mm
– Bonded liquid screed thickness maximum would be 80mm for the specialist version and 80mm for the standard.
What Is Ardit & Ardex?
Dunlop Ardit Floor Leveller is a high-quality Levelling Cement with superior qualities of flow and workability.
Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, Dunlop Ardit Floor Leveller is used prior to the installation of most types of floor coverings including tiles, slate carpet, vinyl, lino, floorboards, ETC.
A high-performance cement-based Floor Leveller with Ardit Technology that creates a smooth even finish prior to applying floor coverings There is a huge range of Dunlop Ardit products for every different scenario in the Floor Preparation world.
Ardex also produces a large range of products similar to Ardit for a large range of Floor Levelling needs.
In the category of Self-Leveling Concrete, there are two main groups of materials: underlayments and toppings. Underlayment is installed over an existing subfloor to smooth it out and correct any surface irregularities prior to the installation of all types of floor coverings, including Vinyl, Lino, Tiles, Wood, Carpet, and more.
A topping performs a similar function but acts as the actual finished floor without the need for a floor covering. Some typical applications for concrete toppings include warehouse floors, light industrial applications, retail stores, and institutional facilities. Concrete toppings can also receive color, stains, saw cuts, or mechanical polishing to produce a decorative concrete finished wear surface.
Most Self-Leveling Compounds are cement-based mixtures that are poured onto the floor and spread with a trowel or spreader. Some industrial compounds are water-based, latex-based, or two-part epoxy resins. Each product has its own range of features and is designed for particular applications.
The method of installation depends on the properties of the compound and the condition of the floor. Set out below is the general installation procedure for a typical cement-based underlayment.
What Is Floor Preparation?
What is Floor Preparation? Floor preparation is the process of preparing the existing concrete slab or timber subfloor to receive a new flooring system or coating while ensuring that your new flooring or coating will look great, lay flat, stay bonded, and not fail for many years to come.
You cannot skip proper Floor Preparation. Every surface needs to be clean, level, free of existing adhesives, and within moisture tolerances, for the type of flooring or coating that you will be installing.
Floor Preparation on Concrete Subfloors is the process of using Concrete Grinders to reduce the size of humps (high spots) in Concrete Slabs and a Floor Levelling Compound to fill in the low areas. This is done primarily to prepare the concrete slab for laying floor coverings with minimal tolerances.
Floor preparation on Timber Subfloors is also the process of Sanding Timber Subfloors to remove any residue that may be left from previous flooring systems. The Timber subfloor is then primed prior to the use of Floor Levelling Compounds to fill in the low areas to allow the successful installation of a new flooring system.
Without proper Floor Preparation, many problems can arise once you’ve installed your new flooring or coating. If you have ever seen:
– Failing Flooring systems
– Uneven Floors
– Floors that creek when walked on
– Floor Coverings that peel up
– Concrete Coatings that peel up
– Coatings Bubbling and Delaminating
You will notice that the correct Floor Preparation needs were not met prior to the installation of the new flooring system or coating resulting in it failing which will also mean that insurance will not cover the costs as you did not install the product to their specifications.
Why Is Surface Preparation Required Before Floor Levelling?
Surface Preparation is the essential first stage treatment of a steel substrate before the application of any coating (Including Floor Levelling), and is generally accepted as being the most important factor affecting the total success of a corrosion protection system.
Surface Preparation is extremely important when it comes to Floor Levelling. Floor Levelling agents will fail if proper Surface Preparation has not been done. Concrete Grinding or Floor Sanding must be done prior to installing Floor Levelling products.
Proper Surface Preparation ensures the longevity of your project. A poorly prepared surface, on the other hand, can result in costly repairs and your project failing altogether.
Surface Preparation should include:
– Removal of the current flooring system or coating
– Concrete Grinding or Floor Sanding (Depending on your subfloor)
– Performing any repairs necessary such as Concrete Cancer Repairs or Application of Waterproof Membranes
– Installation of a Floor Levelling product
After this process, you are now ready to install a new flooring system!
Why Do I Need Floor Levelling?
New concrete slabs are laid to Australian standards which specify a 10mm maximum tolerance within any room and a 20mm maximum tolerance over the entire building footprint.
This makes Floor Levelling an important key to your renovation project as many concrete slabs have a variance of height exceeding the maximum recommended tolerance for laying a large range of flooring systems.
A large portion of people who install new flooring in their home or commercial building fails to inspect the levelling of their concrete subfloor, which almost always leaves their floors with subtle errors and dips. Before installing your new flooring system, always ensure that correct floor preparation is undertaken prior to the installation of a new flooring system.
Floor Levelling may not seem like an important step when putting in new flooring. However, the concrete that acts as a base for your flooring can often have high or low points which means your concrete isn’t completely smooth and level. High points can be caused by concrete spills, contamination, and original pour errors as well. Low points can be frettings, divets, holes, and other damage such as Concrete Cancer and Concrete Cracks.
With Floor Levelling Sydney’s specialist team, we can fix any of these issues such as the raising or lowering of concrete height to accommodate these high or low points. Our Floor Levelling team is also able to create falls in the concrete slab for water-proofing purposes or to direct drains. As well as any other Floor Levelling service that you can think of that may be required prior to installing your flooring system, such as an Ardex Skim Coat or a Liquid Screed.
What Is A Feather Coat?
ARDEX Feather Finish is a cement-based smoothing compound designed to provide a smooth, permanent finish to a variety of internal substrates prior to the installation of floor coverings such as vinyl, carpet, ceramic tile, and sheet timber (plywood, and particleboard).
A Standard Feather Coat is a thin layer of a Floor Levelling compound that is 0.1mm – 3mm thick and troweled over the entire floor to ensure a smooth finish.
It can be used as a skim coat on closely fitted fiber-cement underlay and sheet timber to fill in grooves, and gouges and to level up joints. Prior to the installation of floor coverings.
Can You Level Uneven Concrete Slabs?
Yes, you can Level uneven concrete slabs. Floor Levelling is an easy fix that won’t sacrifice your headroom. The easiest way is to use a Self Leveling Compound, also called liquid floor underlayment or floor resurfacer, within sections of level-cut rails.
How To Level Floors?
The easiest way to Level A Floor involves using a Self-Leveling Compound, which uses gravity to smooth out any dips in the subfloor. If you need to know How To Level A Floor without Leveling Compounds to fix structural issues, it can be more difficult.
Self-Levelling Concrete is a polymer-modified cement. This form of modified concrete is smooth, with high fluidity allowing ease of placement, trowelling, feathering, and finish, making it suitable as a base for tiles, carpet, vinyl, parquetry, timber flooring, or as a stylish floor in its own right.
Concrete Grinding is required ahead of Self-Levelling Concrete if you have previously had paint, epoxy, waterproofing, magnesite, vinyl, lino, tiles, or glued carpet floors.
Self-Levelling Concrete can be a fast, cost-effective solution to the problem whenever you need to repair, smooth, or raise a floor.
Self-Levelling Concrete is a cementitious mixture much like concrete. But unlike concrete, it flows easier and sets up much faster. The product is mixed with water, pumped or poured into place, and spread evenly with a gauge rake. Once it’s spread out, it continues to flow evenly and levels itself out
