My girlfriend and I are in the middle of doing a minor remodel in the kitchen and we are in the middle of figuring out which is the smartest thing to do. I have minor cracks in my foundation and have two options I am looking at. We wanted to poor some self leveling concrete in the kitchen to bring the level even with the tile or lay some wood flooring. The majority of my house is tile and the kitchen was linoleum. Since pulling the linoleum there is now a big lip between the kitchen and dining room.
I was told that if I poor leveling concrete that since the foundation has already cracked that it will transfer the cracks into the leveling concrete when it swells and contracts. Out of the two which is the more wise choice? Self leveling concrete then stain or buy some wood flooring and call it a day?
Here are a few pics of the start. Enjoy, we all love seeing pics!!
