Oh, and I described wrong. It's 2" out from the wall, but along the length of the wall/door (about 60" long).

A self leveling product is made to flow, a patching feathering product will be much easier to handle and trowel where you need it. Follow the directions of whatever product you choose they're all different.

New question: can I have the plumber instal the new toilet flange before the tiles are grouted? Obviously we will wait on putting the actual toilet on...(we are doing that part ourselves.)

Theres no reason you can't. I would protect the area with something, plumbers are notorious for having little regard for a new install. Primer and tools can damage tile pretty easy.

New question: probably should have figured this out before! But we are abutting two tile areas once we get into the laundry area right next door. One is existing 16x16" beige ceramic, the other is the 16x16" travertine. The travertine when set is/will be 1/8"-3/16" higher than the existing ceramic, from our best estimates. The change happens over a doorway.

What's the best way to do this transition? Can I do a mosaic style transition between the two, that spans the gap at a slight angle? I can do as wide as I need to to make this feel/look ok. It's the slight angle I'm concerned about with this- will this work?

My plan b would be to get a travertine look laminate reducer for the doorway, but I'd prefer the mosaic or similar look if I can.

Thanks!

An expansion strip that also handles the change in elevation would work. I think Schluter carries one.

though...I could do the mosaic and then use the expansion joint to go down to the in place tile, couldn't I. So it's not an either/or.

So basically, laying on a very slight (1/8-3/16")
Plane over 4" or so doesn't sound reasonable/there's no way to do that, correct?

New question. I have 4 quarts of this granquartz porous stone impregnator in my garage.

Can I use this to seal my travertine time and grout? I am having trouble finding any information on this- whether it can be used with grout. Idida few searches in this forum and found nothing.

Thanks!
