I had to repair cast iron pipe in the basement. This left me with a 2ft x 3ft hole in my tiled basement floor. We cut along the grout lines, so I just need to replace the tile and concrete.
Well, I have poured the concrete, but I was not able to get the concrete perfectly level.
On two corners across from each other, when I lay a tile down along those corners I notice the tile is not flat. It it is about a 3/16" inch gap.
I'm inclined to to get some Quikrete leveling sealant to bring everything up to level.
My buddy was mentioning that we could just use the mortar that we are using for the tile to fill the gap.
I'm concerned the tile will crack even with the mortar under it if we don't level it. But is 3/16" of an inch anything to worry about?
What do the tile experts here say?
