My builder is finally going to screed the floor this weekend, but,
fair play to him, he has admitted that as he isn't a plasterer, I
should expect a completely smooth finish.
As I am laying floor tiles, I am guess that as long as the floor isn't
too bad, I can absorb the slight inperfections with the tile adhesive.
However, he has suggested that I put self leveling compound down
before tiling, which seems a good idea. Is there any problems laying
kind of material on new screed, or laying tiles on top of it?
Following advice from this group, I am waiting a few weeks for the
screed to go off before laying the tiles, so I am guessing I should
also wait the same time-frame before putting down the S.L.Compound.
However, I have a number of questions.
- Assuming the screed has completely gone off (say 2 to 3 weeks) and I
lay the compound, how long after this can I tile.
- Should I put a water/PVA solution on the screed before laying the
- Should I put a water/PVA solution on the compound before tiling?
As always, and info would be hugely appreciated.
