concrete flooring


I love the look of concrete floors I want to know if and how I can put concrete on sub floor. I am tearing out the carpet. I want to put concrete on it and stain it, Is that possible?

concrete flooring


most likely the subfloor will have too much deflection for this. What are your joist size, spacing and span?

concrete flooring


if you've got std 16: o/c 2x8's, they'll flex & the result may be fine hairline crks in the conc,,, we've got 3/4" 5-ply sub-floor in 1 room & the conc we placed over it is only .387 ( 3/8" ) thick,,, works fine.

we do this work for a living,,, doubtful this'd be a decent d-i-y project,,, make sure your guy's good on structures.
