    Hi All
    Looking for some tips on mulitiroom leveling. As it is it looks like the kitchen has the highest point with the floor dipping into the utility and then into the hall again dips.
    I'm wondering how others tackle these jobs.
    The kitchen will need a liquid dpm so my usual way of drilling and plugging and screws to find levels cant be used either. Floors are sound concrete in an old farm cottage. No ufh.

    Best liquid dpm and any advise on prep for layng slc on top of it?

    What steps do others use to determine their levels in multiroom?

    What do others use to set there levels.? I.E Screw heads etc.
    Any help, advise and tips much appriciated.

    Thanks
    D

    Flooring suppliers offer a better range of Dpms and levellers as they’re more commonly used in that trade. It all depends what brands you have available. My first choice would be Ardex, but F Ball, Tremco, Uzin, Mapei etc all do good systems. Just make sure that you stick with one brand for all the products.
    As regards to the levels, if you can’t plug and screw reference points then simply silicone plastic packets in place through the whole floor, set off your laser datum and allow to dry. If the floors really rough a coat of Ardex NA before the DPM would be the first thing to do, then apply your DPM, once dry set your packers and then level up in however many coats are needed.

    As above. I’ve used Tilemaster epoxy dpm, very solid once set. You prime plus grip it then you can level on top. What m2 are we talking ?

    Set laser up and mark on a staff highest point, use joiners packers or spacers stacked up till they hit mark on staff then stuck with a hot glue gun.. Ultra do a decent two part liquid dpm, roughly get about 8sqm out of a kit..

    Thansk Lee for this. Some great info. I tend to use CTD so will check what they have. I like ardex so will see if i can source theirs. It seem a lot of folk glue ref points so will defo be going down that route. Can't believe i never thought to do that before.
    Cheers

    They don’t, there’s a choice with or without remote, I chose without when I purchased, it’s easy enough to rotate, remote would be easier on much larger areas
