Rated 3 out of 5 by from A major hidden flaw not mentioned on the package Be aware, that the product will crack if you try to screw tapcons into it. It's probably not the very common usecase, as the majority of people will use it to prepare surfact for tiles or laminate, however some subflors (DMX and even DRICore in some cases) do require tapcons. I'm glad I asked the manufacturer, otherwise my floor would look like a broken glass. Other than that it was relatively easy to mix and apply with right tools. We can't buy spiked rollers here in Canada, so I cut slots in a 24" squeegee to spread it. It turned out to be the flattest where I didn't have to touch it. If you can afford it, use more of t his stuff. They work best if you apply at least 1/2". The thicker it is, the flatter and more expensive it is going to be. No screws though. Ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from flat workbench Fantastic. I needed a flat work surface and was looking at paying $200 for a stone slab. I sealed and primed an existing workbench with the recommended acrylic primer/sealer and built up the sides to accommodate the depth of the pour and sealed all joints with heavy duty "duct tape" to make sure nothing got past the dams. I followed the instructions on the package for mixing the product and did my pour.....no problems. (Not sure why someone had their mix set up in the bucket. I would suggest operator error on that one.) To get rid of any small air bubbles that rose to the top, I used compressed air at a very low pressure, blown across the top of the fresh pour, to break the surface tension. The workbench is approximately 2.5'x 2.5', and received a 1/2" pour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better than before but not level First time using self leveling compound so can't compare with any other product. Probably all the quick set ones are all much the same. Allowing for my lack of expertise I would say that it is very difficult to get a truly level floor. I ended up with an improvement over the original floor but with undulations. I did mix it a little thinner than the instructions, to aid the self leveling, but the product has its limitations in this respect. It would probably have been best to use a leveler that takes longer to set as time was not an issue for me and a longer working time would I think allow for a better result. There was a deal on this product which is why I went with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some tips to help you get the best from this Part of my basement is an addition and the rooms are fairly small and the concrete floors were trowel finished. It wasn't until I went to lay DriCore that I found out just how uneven and sloping they were! LevelQuik seemed to be the only product Home Depot carries, so I didn't really have much choice in what to use. My concrete subfloor had been painted with concrete paint, but I still gave it a cost of acrylic primer -- which is the recommend application procedure and stops some of the complaints elsewhere in the reviews from happening (crumbling, setting up too quickly). You should use EXACTLY the recommended amount of water and mix for several minutes. This product relies on the fine aggregate being in suspension to achieve self levelling. This also means that if the water leaches out of the product too quickly, because you didn't prime for example, you will get set up too quickly and unevenly. Because I have around an inch of slope in my floor that goes down to one corner, I'm pouring in more than one lift with the first lift being well over half an inch. I'll then mix up more product and spread it over the whole floor and not just the very low area to complete the job. Be sure to wear rubber gloves when handling the product. Your hands will thank you afterwards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You have to mix it thin This stuff is good but I mixed it according to instructions and it does not flow properly meaning it will not level out properly. I found you have to mix it pretty thin for it to flow like water and yes it does take a little longer to dry but at least it flows to level. As one of the other persons said ...they had to chisel some of it out. When I first used it i ended up doing that as well. You have to mix it thinner so it flows like water

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as described The floor turned out great. I found that as long as you prepared the surface as they suggest and mix the product as they describe then you shouldn't have any problems. I mixed the product while my wife poured it on the floor, don't waste any time as it has to be done quite quickly. It spread out smoothly giving a level surface that didn't require any sanding. Make sure that all the edges are chaulked as this material is initialy like water and will leak out if not properly sealed. I poured this over a cement floor covering heating cables.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surface tension Step 1: Disregard instructions! At least triple the quantity of water otherwise the product will develop a surface tension upon the edges and simply stop flowing leaving an unacceptably thick edge. Also, the product will not spread and "self-level" if too thick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This floor leveler works exactly as they describe. It is extremely easy to use for the DIY'er. just follow the directions properly, dump it on the floor, give it a quick spread with the backside of a rake and then leave it alone. WORKS AWESOME!!

How do you calculate how many bags you would need?

Asked by: FreddyRose
As per the coverage information on the bag, it will cover about 48 sq feet at 1/8 of an inch. I devided my room into 1' squares and determined the depth needed for each square. Then I calculated how many 1/8 of an inch levels I would need for each square. Assume: - A 5x5 room where it slopes 1/4 inch per foot. (total slope 1-1/4 inches). - You want 1/4 inch of cement on the high side, 1-1/2 on the lowest side (1-1/4 for the slope + 1/4 to allow for the build up on the high side). - The 1st 5 squares need 2x1/8th, the 2nd need 4x1/8th, 3rd need 6x1/8, 4th need 8x18th and last row need 10x1/8th. - So the 1st row needs 2x5=10 1/8th, 2nd 4x5=20, 3rd is 6x5=30, 4th is 8x5=40 and last is 10x5=50. - Total 1/8 sq foot levels is 150..... so 3 bags would cover it.

Is this product recommended to raise/level an area  approx 10’x4’ 1/8”-1/4” over concrete to lay vinyl plank on top? 

Asked by: Rachel
Yes. Have someone mixing while someone else is pouring & troweling. Use a 1.25” x 1.25” trowel to spread. Don’t work it for too long, just get it spread to a uniform thickness an leave it to do it’s thing.

I need to build up a small area with the lowest point of one inch. Can l apply a half inch and let it dry and then apply another half inch on top to reach my one inch and is a primer required to a painted concrete floor.

Asked by: Mojodrum
Yes, you can apply half an inch at a time. I applied it directly to a painted slab without primer, did not have any problems. Take note it hardens fast.

I am installing a shower base that does not require any mortar. This is a basement installation where my concrete slopes 1/2 inch over 38 inches. can I use this product to level my floor to install my shower base on top of it?

Asked by: Mikey Mike
It should work for that. I used the product to level my basement floor, where there were some dips and slopes, prior to installing laminate and it worked fine. I didn't have a 1/2" to make up, but the product worked well for levelling and dried hard like concrete. I used a trowel to feather the edges of the LevelQuik into the existing floor to give an almost seamless transition. Follow the instructions, mix with a drill and mixer blade, and maybe add just a little extra water if you want it to flow a little more easily. It's pretty easy to use.

Will this product work if I need to cover a depth of more than 1.5 inches in some sections? If so would I just pour a depth of 1.5 inches let it set and then pour another layer on top?

Asked by: JenD
Yes you can cover more then 1.5 inch. I poured up to 2.5”, however let first lay set then pour second. I think you could easily pour 1.5 in one pour if you like and it would set fine.    This product is great I would recommend it.
