Questions: over old adhesive / elevation
I’d like to install electric heat over a current slab. It has a little adhesive I’m having trouble removing (black/hard/there from over 30 years ago).
I’d like to have minimal added elevation. The floor adjoins two other spaces. The current concrete is even with the surrounding wood floor.
Can I attach the heating coils directly to the current slab then add a very thin concrete over the coils?
Also can I have no coils about 12 inches into the room where it meets the surrounding wood floor for a gradual slope to meet the needed elevation for the coils to be covered? I’d like the change in elevation to be noticeable as little as possible.
