    Damn in one of my house the flooring work is not done great by the contractor and i found the loose tiles out after days till then i released all money.

    I find your ible very useful for me and its very clear and upto the point with videos. Thanks a ton. I have one query about epoxy? from what i know, epoxy are the two part mix, and they become so sticky with almost 24hrs to cure. So are you referring the same epoxy.

    Is there no problem with "cement + water + epoxy mix"?

    Have that harden and bonded enough?
