Last time I was in AZ I thought my hair was going to burn off it was so hot. But the bbq & beer helped me stay cool: http://www.satisfiedfrog.com/

$1 s/f for vct demo and clean is what it goes for in CA also. Less if you are doing more slab work.

I've been tempted to hire http://www.azhomefloors.com/ on some jobs. He seems (on youtube) to do great detailed work on slab issues.

Well we Arizonans have air conditioned vehicles and houses usually. Plus we wear hats in the summer. The winter temps are about 70' ish and sunny. It's hard to take but I do it.

Well all I can say is Kudos to the guy to throw on a vac to a Bosch chipping hammer. I do like his screed as well.

But it's a stretch on the dustless side. Plus when I think of Scottdale, I think multi-million dollar homes. He is showing 2 track homes. Nothing close to the real Scottsdale I know.

And those 2 trailers he putzes around in....lol how is he not getting a ticket?

Yea that screed is cool. But I don't know if it flys normal standards.

I continue to look for a good flatness test for 12 months after pour without a screed on the ground.

Astm and aci have failed me. Ff Fl only good for right after pour.

Is there a standard for resi? Ask a GC who builds houses and you will get the blank stare.

Test for flatness, a bucket half full of water and a string with a knot tied on one end.

I could carry two of these, some string and run it across the room and across joint to find high points. What ya think?

ASTM / ACI ... make a standard.

Now there's a waste of money. First of all if you can't snap a chalk line under 6 feet long by yourself... well... I sure can. Wink

And secondly, instead of taking the time to go get your $300 line frog out of the truck, why not put a brick or just about anything with some weight on the line to hold it? Dodgy
