    Hello

    I am looking for advice on best way to create level floor for luxury click vinyl flooring with underlay attached.

    It’s going on top of concrete floor which has residual grout, so it needs to be level and also level with the new concrete floor in the extension (which builder did slightly higher so as to join with self levelling) and older concrete utility floor.

    We hired someone to apply a screed/ self levelling and lay the floor. He used Level it MultiPro. The finish is really not what I expected and I asked the fitter why it wasn’t level. He said he some places just need feather coating and he’ll do that on the day of laying floor and then buff it out. Photos attached.

    Is this correct? The video I watched for MultiPro provided a very smooth finish compared to what we have currently.

    Thanks for reading.

    Nope, too much faffing about. If he knew what he was doing then it would have looked a lot neater and smoother than that

    Doesn't look like it's reached the height of the new concrete anyway

    Feather could possibly work, he will just need about 20 bags of it
