I recently had gypcrete poured over my plywood subfloor with sleepers. The
gypcrete was left an average of 1/8" low from the top of the sleepers. Is
this common practice? The flooring will be pre-finished bamboo. My bamboo
guy says that 1/8" is a bit much and the gypcrete people say that leaving it
low is the industry standard and won't come back to make it even. Who is
Leaving it low enables a levelling grout/ adhesive to be applied---leaving
it high is therfore a problem.
Your contractor should have stated his tollerances, if i was fitting a floor
i would certainly appreciate the "extra" within reason, and remember one
product is a "foundation" the other is a "finish"
Albeit a bit late--your flooring contractor should have stated the tolerance
he would accept inorder to lay the floor for the quoted price, you inturn
would have passed this on to the gypcrete guy, who inturn would have told
you that you are having a laugh.
A few bags of levelling compound will sort your floor man out---he is just
wriggling for more money or going to try to charge as extra works.
Love your comment about he wont come back----so you paid up for a job that
was not satisfactory? hmmm
Get a contractor to all the works next time on a fixed price---do not pay
till you like the results.
