You should be using a sanded grout, JT.

I tried that method once. My advice: Bring a big ol' bucket of patience and keep it close at hand. At least on your first try. :)

Shawn has obviously done more carpet work than I, but 3/8ths" gap between tile and tack strips sounds a bit wide to me. Perhaps he's judging by the type of carpet he sees in your photos?

The Deflectolator calculates only the deflection of the joists, JT. Has nothing at all to do with the subflooring.

Depends upon the grout you use.

My opinion; worth price charged.

From your description that basement wall should be...

Thanks, Jason, good information. I note that Kerapoxy is not indicated for use even in the "moderate heat" category. Or am I missing something?

I would not recommend you attempt to repair those indentations. Be more careful next time.

My opinion; worth price charged.

I would suggest that if your receptor has successfully passed a flood test that you leave it alone, Marie.

My opinion; worth price charged.
