    Hi all,

    We're in the process of having a conservatory built. Everythings up, the underfloor heating is down and wired (not live yet) and the builder has put a layer of self-leveler down to inbed the wiring from the heating.

    The problem is the self-leveling floor isn't very level. It doesn't appear to be a thick enough layer to cover the wiring from the heating, which shows as quite prominent ridges around 2-3mm above the self-level. I'm not expert but surely this will make tiling on it impossible as there's no flat surface. I can't imagine the adhesive will flatten out these difference? Or am I wrong?

    If this is a no go, what other options are there? It'll obviously be a right pain to dig up the self-leveler and it'll more than likely knacker the heating as well. Can I use another layer or self-leveler?
