Concrete Flooring


I'd like to do concrete flooring on the main floor of my house. Currently there is ceramic tile with vinyl (I think) underneath. Should I rip up all the tile. Then pour coloured concrete. OR pour a concrete base then apply a microfinish or thin surface application over the concrete base?

Concrete Flooring


Concrete slab floors or wood? Stained or colored concrete is not really a DIY job.

Concrete Flooring


Slab floors I guess. Also, I have concrete slab steps to the house. Can I cap them with a micro-finish? And, how do you get rid of the bubbling that happens on vertical surfaces?
