Can level quik be poured over wood subfloor

1

Thanks to everyone for their replies.

In looking back on it, and reading your suggestions, I'm gonna plead guilty to probably trying to do waaay too much by myself - entire 800ft pour was done by myself, from mix to pour to squeegee. I think I may just have pushed my DIY limits for one person. No, she wasn't home - and would not have been able to assist anyway.

Primer: used it straight out of the bottle, no dilution, as this was unsealed slab. Didn't want to take chances (that is mildly humorous to me now).

Thickness of pour: in the selected places where it DID self level, varies from feather to just over 3/8". Don't get me wrong, where it DID work I'm a happy camper, but where it didn't I'd just as soon put carpet down......but the spousal unit/"customer" begs to differ. One thing that I have noticed is that some of the areas at the walls, where it didn't completely flow out, looks similar to a puddle of dried paint, if you know what I mean. Is this indicative...

> How Do I Level My Sub Floor? Page 2 a). First set your leveling devise to lock in on the height you found so that when it is even it will represent 0 point.
b). Now if your going to pour a leveling compound or any other method you will need to account for the minimum thickness the product can be. If your going over concrete you will most likely use a cement type option including mud job or pourable leveling compound. If your going over wood you can include the carpenter option as well. When going over wood with leveling compound you will need to allow for 3/4" of material over the high point. If going over concrete some materials will allow you to start at a feather edge for short distances and 1/2" minimum over the remaining areas. Mud job will require 1.5" minimum.
c). Now that you have decided on which material to use you will add the minmum thickness to the top of your high point.
d). Next lock in your leveling device to your new high point.
