Concrete Flooring


I have a customer who is interested in having concrete floors put in her home. She lives in a second story condo sooooo. What I am wondering is if there is some product that could be applied to her sub floor to simulate concrete. Something that you could skim coat on. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance!

Re: Concrete Flooring


OK sorry, phones ringing, alarms going off, dog barking, had to go.

What I am thinking of aren't skim coats but instead pourable self levellers. They are subject to deflection rules and are not a cure-all but can be used in some cases with great results.

Mapei International makes a whole series of just such products. Some are wear surfaces suitable for staining and finishing.

Re: Concrete Flooring


I have installed concrete overlays over subfloors with excellent results. Feel like subbing it out? lol
