No we do not recommend doing this. We suggest lifting the laminate flooring up and then laying this product down.

For further advice please call our Customer Service Team on 0870 608 9001.

Hi,
I think you can use this, just put a little bit more water to it. About 6 litre per bag!

Whilst you would be able to use this product to level a concrete floor we would always recommend the use of a damp proof membrane when fitting a wooden floor. We would consider this to be standard practice to protect the flooring from moisture.

Question
Latex or none latex self leveling compound ?
I have a two week old screed floor (not sealed and dusty if rubbed firmly) which has two areas that need to be raised 20-25mm. I’ve been told I should only put a latex levelling compound onto a screed floor because it will bond better than non latex. Q: is this so?
Q: Should I use a latex compound on the screed but then build up the depth with Deep Base compound (Product 154050) or is there a better product that will Bond and do the Depth in one go?

This levelling compound is not suitable to be used at the depth you require. We would suggest that the Deep Base levelling compound would be the most suitable product for your use but would need further information to be able to advise you correctly. Please contact our Customer Services on 0844 279 9898, followed by option 3, for assistance.

Question
Can this self leveling be used straight on top of a plastic damp proof membrane?
If so, would i need to glue the membrane to the floor first and perhaps add a layer of glue on top before i lay the self levelling compound?

It this wouldn't work, how would i come across laying the both of them, what else would i need?

Not completely certain of what you are doing but if you are leveling a concrete floor seal floor with pva/water allow to dry then use self levelling compound.When compound sets place moisture barrier on top.Then underlay then carpet/laminate.The self leveller needs to stick to the base properly otherwise it will crack and break up.
