How to scrape 6 to 10mm off a concrete floor (around 3m x 4m area at
least 100mm thick).
Response to my recent post (and follow up to the suggested equipment
hirer, for which ref many thanks) on floor scrabblers here suggests
that would be hard way of doing the job (if indeed it would do it).
I could of course break it up & relay but that look very hard work
plus an expensive waste disposal problem plus a drying out time delay.
Is there any other way please?
I have a problem with randomness in floor heights, plus I'm going to be
laying a mixture of tiles and wood which have different thicknesses.
Although it doesn't directly answer your question, I've decided to put in
old fashioned door threshold strips in solid wood, and plane a chamfer into
them to match any differences in levels. Won't be very noticable. For me it
also acts as a natural buffer between floor types.
The floor scabbler is the perfect tool for the job. Let's face it,
yours is precisely the task they were designed for.
Another idea. Why not screed over the whole floor, bringing it all to
the same higher level?
Er, sds is just a type of drill suitable for drilling into concrete. If
the drill has no depth stop, then put some insulating tape round the
drill bit to stop you going deeper than 10mm. Drill some holes, and then
use the bolster and club hammer to knock off the bits you haven't
drilled. The principle is that the concrete will tend to shatter at a
depth of 10mm rather than be totally random.
