Hello to all, We had epoxy laid over our garage concrete floor about 10 yrs ago. On my wife's side, there are three areas where the epoxy is gone. I can post pics if you wish. Has anyone patched the holes on an epoxy floor before and how did it turn out? If so and it went well, can you pls point me to a website or store that provides the correct materials to patch the holes. They are about 1.5" in length and 1" wide. Thank you very much, tstex ..read more

Looking for insight. I removed a ceramic tile floor and there was a lot of thinset. I used a chisel hammer to remove it. There is still rough residue. I bought a thinset removal grinding wheel from Harbor Freight and the dust cover. It worked well for about 80% of the floor then broke. Since it was supposed to be a universal fit and didn’t fit perfectly, after a while it became... Removing old thinset from subfloor ..read more

I recently removed the carpeting in my enclosed front porch and installed vinyl tiles. B/c the room is not perfectly square, I wasn't able to fit the tiling in perfectly creating a gap by the front door. There is also a half inch drop which is due to the tile being thinner than the carpet/padding that was there before. What can I do to finish this area so it looks nice? Pic attached for reference ..read more

Well 2 weeks ago i wanted to replace the AC unit in the studio. its a typical wall unit you can buy from home depot or sears. The one in there was from the 1970s, so i purchased a new LG one from home depot. When i went to put it in, the metal case wasnt long enough. So since i had my brother and father with me, we decided to pull out that metal case and order a new one then install it all the following weekend. As we pulled out the metal case, a shingle from the side of the house fell... First Home issue ..read more

Hi all, first post but have been going through the forums a lot in preparation for my first tiling project. We are renovating the master bath in our house built in 1993. BTW I am a DIYer so apologies if the wrong terminology is used - I'm here to learn! The room is approximately 25 sq ft, 19/32" osb (Potlatch OX Board brand?), with joists that are 2x9.25" and 16" OC, unknown wood but in very good shape. The span is about 10". The subfloor is in good shape as well, except for crowning and... Addressing Subfloor Issues Prior to Tiling ..read more

I encountered a problem with installing tile flooring in my bathroom. Despite careful planning, I had uneven surfaces causing alignment issues. To fix the problem, I removed the misaligned tiles, applied a self-levelling compound to the sub floor, and then reinstalled the tiles and made sure it was aligned well. It was tiring but I was really happy with the end result, it was worth it ..read more
