I can't figure out what to do with my mudroom. I has a cement floor
that is generally level except for a bump under the entry door to the
adjacent room; like a 2x30 inch bump, about an inch in height, just
before the door saddle. I'm afraid that the bump is too pronounced to
be remedied with a leveling compound. I'm thinking of tiling the room
with quarry tile until I reach the bump. Over that area I'm considering
using a decorative 1 inch tile....kind of as a border. My question
is... is there enough flexibility in the smaller tiles to accomodate
that uneven a subfloor?. Thanks in advance for your help
The mudroom was an addition to the basic house; an old log cabin.
Apparently the builder didn't do a great job when he poured the
slab.....so there is a section that rises above the rest of the floor
right before the entrance to the kitchen....so its convex rather than
concave. There's no practical way of grinding down that section to meet
the rest of the floor. It also wouldn't make sense to raise the whole
subfloor to that level.
Appreciate the advice. I was speaking to a salesman at a local tile
store, who seems to know what he's talking about. He says that it would
be OK to use one inch tiles over the hump,,, That seems to be the
quicker, less messy solution. Thanks again for the info.
