Garage floor? Just kiddin', it's hard from tell from the picture, however if it's in a garage or basement I would guess it's an expoxy coating with "flecks" (paint chips) on top, although it would have way to many "flecks" on it. It could be a sheet goods like linoleum or viynl, be careful if it's very old it may contain asbestos. If the backing is bendable or resembles thick tar paper it's probably sheet goods like vinyl or linoleum, if it's a hard surface it could be an epoxy.

(please excuse my poor grammars, I was born severe hard of hearing..another word, I am deaf to a certain degree)

It's my basement floor. I don't think it is epoxy paint because I painted my garage floor with epoxy paint with flecks (I love it!) .

It does have some sort of thin paper backing, and it is sort of flexible but if I bend it it will break. I can pull it off real easy from my concrete floor. It seem use paint chips and have some sort of glossy/resin sealant on top of it. I would love to have it remove so I could have a nice sewing room in the basement. I hate carpet and was kind hoping I could paint the floor with epoxy paint like my garage.

Does it cost alot to have it removed by a professional?
