Question floor leveling

On one of the home improvement shows on TV, I saw a product for leveling a floor prior to tiling. This was a liquid that was poured on and self-leveled as it dried. No one in my town seems to know what this product is. Anyone know about this??

Self-leveling compound

Check with a local home center for self-leveling compound.

Hi Lynette,

The correct term is "self-leveling cement," or "SLC." Home Depot sells a product made by Custom Building Products, and there are several other brands available, including Ardex and Cement Pro.

Be very careful to follow directions to the T. The home improvement shows always make things look easier than they are.

Depending on the size of your tile job you can simply use the thinset used to set the tiles to level the floor, this is assuming you are refering to ceramic? If your job is a larger one, and you have little experience, leveling ceramic while setting same can be a dificult endeavor for the novice, hence using one of the so called self leveling materials would be easier. If you are refering to vinyl tiles, Armstrong makes their own leveler in 25 pound bags for this purpose. Tom
