I want to lay concrete floors in my home. To include kitchen, living room and hallway. Anyone have experience with this ? I thought wood at first ... but there is just something classy about concrete. I heard $3 - $8 dollars.
Figure area rugs would draw everything together nicely.
Wood is not off the table at this point.
How long does it last ?
How periodically would you need to reseal it ?
I heard $3- $8? What does this mean? A sf or what?How thick will this concrete be and what is going to support it?
There is a reason that the only houses you see with conctete floors are slab on grade.
Just saw another post of yours on the same topic stating that you live in a condo.It would have been good of you to have posted this info in one post.If the condo you live in is multi story and you could give us more info you probably already have concrete your floor.Is it a concrete structure?Wood framed condo?How many units will usually determan that?
I live on a second floor condominium. I am going to meet with contractors tomorrow and see the weight threshold for the flooring. I thought "man, industrial buildings can handle it - why not this building ?" Perhaps it will be a pipe dream.
$3 - $8 a square foot. I read a few articles that upper floors should not have thicker then 2in slabs. I figured the subfloor would support it. But I am headed off to meet contractors tomorrow and get their expertise / take on it as well.
Much sorry for the post regarding if it was a condo. It is multi-stored - 2 floor. I am on the top. Looks like lightweight concrete / gypcrete is the subfloor material right now. The structure is brick. All of them have the same structure as far as I know.
