    About the same £10+ equivalent in the US.
    Too expensive for too little benefit I think (so far).

    It’s £12 plus vat if you buy loads , bloke on my job paid £200 for 10m2 , he was trying it on a floor before he did the rest , 160 odd m2, he said it was too expensive and didn’t sound right to walk on compared to a little toilet I did in tm matting.
    So he bought the tm matting, was cheaper to buy and lay than flex .
    Apparently it’s been used for years like Harry said,so it must work though

    Spending more on products and less earnings on labour, doesn't appeal to me.

    I'm speaking to someone about getting it specced with warranty using the gutjahr branded one and a different adhesive . Bal are a company I refuse to line the pockets of.

    Are you using flexbone on this?

    If your using flex bone, why are you sanding ? Also after 3 weeks it will still be too wet

    were sanding to allow the hard layer on the surface to be removed as this will allow drying to happen quicker were running 4 big fans 24hrs a day to circulate the air so allowing drying faster.
    the hard surface layer slows down drying as it helps retain the moisture.
