Darn Painted Concrete Floor
I have a painted concrete floor in the basement. It was painted with a 1 part expoxy paint.. the paint didn't stick.. so it's chipping up in several places.. Now, I am considering putting some tile down.. but I know the tile won't stick to the paint... and I do not want to even try to get the paint off the floor (I have asthma and the fumes would kill me.. and oh, the mess!!) So, I was wondering, is it possible to put down some cement backer board, secure it to the exiting concrete floor, and then tile away?? Or does anyone have a better idea?? I would like to keep the floor waterproof as much as possible.. Much thanks for all your help!
