Preparing floor after tile removal

Post by corematrix »

The tiles were a nightmare to pull up as the adhesive was super strong around 90% floor coverage.
We need to lay some self-levelling but before we do that is it a better idea to just keep chipping off the adhesive trying to not go too deep, or just belt sander it off?
What's the best way to prepare this floor for self-levelling.

Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.


Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

Can any one else see the picture? Yes or No.

(Not being awkward but I really can't see the picture and moderators see things we can't)

OP seems to have deleted the file from their dropbox account.
