I managed to pick up the very heavy duty vinyl that had previously been
stuck down all over. That's left a residue of some fairly thick
adhesive. Do I need to sand that off before applying some self levelling
I've just done a moderate area here. What was on the concrete seemed to
be a black, presumably painted on waterproof, layer, with, in certain
areas, a glue layer on top.
I haven't replaced the waterproof layer, which didn't seem very
consistent anyway, but just used an old chisel and a paint scraper to
remove most of the glue. Took a few days of intermittent work.
As I'm doing a temporary bodge, I've just laid stick-on tiles on top.
What no one told me and I didn't think about was the temperature. The
tiles say "Do not install below 17 deg C". It was -3 outside when I
installed them in the normally unheated "scullery". The fan heater
didn't seem to make much difference to the concrete floor temp.
