Retro Half-Bath Redo

Hi all,

It's been a few years since I have done any tiling work, so I haven't been around for a while. I'm starting a new half-bath project that will really only have some floor tile. Using 1" white hex.

I will need to get the slightly uneven concrete floor in better flat condition. I have had good outcomes with LevelQuik ES...I like having more time to work with it.

I did remember having trouble with Home Depot knowing how to order, so I checked in the Liberry and found the model number (LQESL50), but Home Depot still had problems.

I emailed Custom Building Products to see what we needed and here is the reply I got back...thought it might be useful to add to that Liberry post?

"This particular product will be a special order for Home Depot. The special order SKU # is 307254. The item number you provided is correct (LQESL50). Your local Home Depot will need to call our customer support for pricing."

Armed with this, I managed to get HD to order some. That SKU worked, but they had to call Custom to get both the store's cost and the MSRP (MSRP was same as for LevelQuik RS).

Will post pics as I get started on the project...waiting for supplies to get here.

I've added that information to the Liberry, John. Thanks.

Floor is in!

The LevelQuik ES pour went fine...nice and level. Here are a couple of pics of the floor. I was a little disappointed with the consistency of the spacing of the tiles on the mesh...I think I used American Olean before and the spacing was very good, but I couldn't find this pattern with them. I think it's not TOO easy to see where the sheets meet up, except near the toilet and will mostly be covered by the toilet anyway.

I used Prism grout...I have had better luck with color consistency using it. Only took about half a bag for this floor so I have a lot left over. The color is Delorean Gray.


This is all the tile for this project, but I will still update as we move along.

Oops, got out of order

Meant to post before and during the self-leveling process pics. Also a shot of figuring out the layout and where I would need to trim the sheets. I labeled each with a piece of tape and a number so I would know where to put them as I went along (less thinking = less confusion).

Finished Product

A little bit of painting left to do, but pretty much done. I think it turned out pretty nice!
