    Hi there

    My rental property’s previous owner has screedEd over the 1930s quarry tiles in my kitchen. I’ve laid Lino and the screed has ‘blown’. Presumably no damp course. I’m considering scraping off the blown screed, painting on a DPM and rescreeding with self levelling compound.

    Does this sound like the way forward? Any recommendations on a surface DPM?

    thanks in advance

    If the floor is smooth and clean then yes Dpm 1st. If it’s not then
    Ardex NA To get flat and smooth
    Dpm 1c
    Ardex NA as top coat

    You should try and go a local flooring company that does LVT , Amtico , Karndean. They should be able to order it for you.
