    Karndean over underlay?

    Camaro vinyl flooring planks

    Damp patch on concrete floor by door

    Dig down around 6 inch. You mix the ardex NA then add the granno and mix that in as well. You can use other latex screeds but make sure it’s a bag and bottle and not a water mix. you leave the Dpm sheet up the sides around a inch

    Damp patch on concrete floor by door

    Always a problem to us this. Dpm sheet isn’t under the door frame correct. I would dig that section out and put in a Dpm sheet then fill with ardex NA and granno chips.

    Hope you have left a big expansion gap on the walls as that wood is to close to the fireplace. You should cut it back 30mm then put a solid oak T bar doortrim in

    Self levelling over vinyl floor

    Take a gamble mate on a small area. As I do it for a living I don’t take the risk . Putting compounds down over non porous sub floors you have to be 6mm or under. norcros who make that compound don’t put enough info on their data sheets.

    Self levelling over vinyl floor

    Take the tiles up or use ardex NA and do 2 coats at 7mm most smoothing compounds won’t bond at that thickness

    XPS recommendation

    Way too thick on the underlays. Too much movement. One is a carpet underlay. You would be better floating some engineered wood or a thick carpet & underlay.
