  • Uneven insulation pad

    I have poured a 4 inch vermiculite pad, I leveled it off and have left it for four days.
    It seemed to have settled more in some places than others.
    Would I be better to put a thin skim of cement/vermiculite across it to level it out or have a thicker leveling medium of fireclay and sand. (how thick can this be?)

    Are you placing ceramic board atop that?

      Nope, was planning on the leveling medium then the fire brick base, costs are starting to get out of control.

        I would go with more vcrete, since its not as efficient as ceramic board.
