Question - Self Leveling

How can I calculate the amount of self-leveling material I will need for a particular job.?

Answer:

Here is a rule of thumb you can follow. Take the total square feet of the job and divide it by the number of pounds of self-leveling material you are using. This will give you the "rule of thumb" material requirement for 1/8" of leveling over the surface. Increases above 1/8" will then be a multiple of the weight at 1/8". For example, you have a 500 sq. ft.of space. Using 25 lb. bags of self leveling, you would require 20 bags of material (500/25) to provide you with 1/8" worth of coverage. If the coverage required is 1/2" then you would now need 4 times more (4/8"=1/2"). So, at 1/2" the required number of bags would become 80 to cover the same 500 sq. ft. area with 1/2" of leveling.
