Perhaps an easy one, don't know really: just finishing off building my
first ever extension and I laid some Febfloor self leveling compound
which went quite well but due to the limited time you have to lay it
before it goes off, I could only get 3 bags mixed and down with enough
time to still work it and some parts of it aren't as level as i wanted
and it isn't as high as I wanted.
The question is, is it possible to lay a second layer of self leveling
on top of the first? It won't be higher than what they recommend on the
packet (5-6mm), but they said you're not supposed to do it cos it won't
bond, or some other reason I can't remember. I know I could grout it
out before tiling, but i'd like it a little higher and smoother before
I do that. Is there any way of doing it which will leave me a good
You can do it. Use a bonding agent recomended by the manufacturer of your
self-leveling mix. You can find it in your home improvement store. It goes
by names such as Ad-mix, bonding additive, milk, latex ad-mix, cement
Roll it on to the first layer you poured, when it gets tacky, pour on the
second layer of self-leveling compound.
