baseboard/flooring disaster


years ago, i had a friend help me remodel my kitchen. while the price tag was nice, some of the workmanship was not. i had concrete floors installed that were acid stained and finished with an epoxy. i didn't really realize until later the disaster that was left. not only was there not enough concrete poured to reach the baseboards in all places, but it is uneven. they even cut out some of the baseboard. i have racked my brains trying to figure out how to fix this situation. i toyed with the idea of floating more concrete on top, but i think that trying to match the acid stain is going to be difficult. i also thought that, maybe, i should just pour down a bunch of epoxy any ideas are much appreciated.

In my my opinion I would float out more concrete. But you don't want to float more concrete on top without roughing up the surface. Cause it will eventually crack and break loose if you don't.

to me redoing the baseboards would be far easier then trying to add 1/2-3/4 of an inch of concrete.

I do not know if I should laugh or cry.
To redo that floor you would have to remove all tha old epoxy and get back down to bare concrete.
I'd just remove and replace the baseboard with a taller base and call it a day.
There is no just patching and painting them.
May have to do a funky two part base on that one it's so messed up.

If the floor is O.K. with you then replace the base and add painted shoe mold. The shoe mold is thin enough to form the floor.

I would probably start all over. Grind everything off the concrete, remove and replace the baseboards and redo the acid staining. While staining a perfectly a new unsealed concrete floor may be able to be done by most handy people, you may consider hiring a professional for this.
