help needed

hi everyone
i have today laid a 100mm concrete base for my conservatory. I have noticed that I need to make up an inch to match the existing floor of the house.

my question is this. if I use self levelling compound to say the maximum 6mm thickness. can I add another layer of self leveller to say 6mm etc etc to gain the inch that I need to match the existing floor. ( once tge first layer has dried obviously)

thanks

Expensive that it would take a lot of bags. A sand cement and granno mix would be a lot cheaper or get it ashphalted

Ant in mix n lay an inch of traditional screed make sure floor is slurried with sir n cement otherwise it'll take ages and cost a small fortune

a 1 inch screed was a standard screed.
i would flood the oversite, to slow the suction then apply sbr while the sbr is still wet lay the screed with sbr in the mix. flood the screed and cover with polythene for the next 7 days to cure. if the screed dries out to quickly it will turn up at the edges like a piece of dried bread.

Malc is bang on.

I have a outside area done as above 25mm thick finished in Arduit exterior self leveller, done ten years ago. Faced the elements and an annual pressre wash.

Anyone who can semi dry screed can do it and the curing is important.
