Holly on Jun 10, 2015Flooring people have a floor leveling" product that goes on thick and dries to a cement like area. Sorry, I don't know the name but it is just what you want.Helpful Reply
Cer2010 on Jun 10, 2015The glue was called "cutback". The time when it was used, tile and many sheet goods contained asbestos. You should not sand this floor until you have determined there is no asbestos. Even scraping a trowel on asbestos tile is dangerous. There is a product to patch the missing pieces. It is "floor patch with latex additive". The black glue will come thru anything you put down eventually. It is asphalt based and the oil comes out and discolors whatever you put down. You say you are going to paint the floor, what are you going to use that will stick to the tile?Helpful Reply
Mehartgallery on Jun 10, 2015I painted my kitchen, back entry, and hallway floor probably 15 years ago! It was a temporary fix... but it has stood the test of time!! It looks like tile, as I used masking tape to make "tile grout" lines after painting the entire floor. (I sponged it with a couple of colors, very light tan, and white, sponging it to look mottled.) I used a high adhesion paint, but it was simple latex, and then I painted a coat of Verathane acrylic varnish over it. (Diamond Finish Verathane). Sorry I don't have a before and after pic, but it was dark grey vinyl tiles. Soooooo.... my suggestion would be to buy some inexpensive vinyl tiles to fill in the area that is missing, then go ahead and paint. If you do anything else, I'm pretty sure it will show, as the surfaces will not be the same (even though they will be covered with paint, I think the difference would still show.) (Porch and floor paint should be excellent for this application.)Helpful Reply
Sarah Jackson on Jun 10, 2015Since you are going to paint over it you could cut around the hole to make it a square, like you would if repairing a hole in the wall, then add a square piece from a new piece of peel n stick tile to fill it in...Helpful Reply
