Self Leveling Concrete - How To
I just got done redoing my shop outside and I wanted to show you guys how I used self leveling concrete on your floors, so here ya go!
When I build things, I want to make sure I have a level floor, so it is necessary in my shop to have one.
I wanted to make sure you guys knew exactly what I did so here is the step-by-step tutorial on how I did that.
Supplies for Self Leveling Concrete
Step 1 - Wash the Floor
I washed the concrete as good as I could so when I poured the rapid concrete nothing got mixed in.
Step 2 - Pour Self Leveling Concrete Primer
Then, I poured the rapid set leveling concrete primer onto the ground and spread out with a broom.
Next, I let the primer dry until it was clear, because this indicates when it is completely dry.
Step 3 - Pour Again
I poured the rapid set leveling concrete into the middle of the floor and slowly made my way out.
I made sure I was pouring it around the edges and not in the middle of the spot because it levels right if you do it that way.
Step 4 - Let it Dry Overnight
Then I let that dry over night. It is done.
If I were not laying floors I just would have gotten enough to fill the entire floor so it would match.
I am just laying floor on top of this, so it was not needed.
It is all level! Whoot Whoot!
Here is what I ended up doing with this space.
