Reparing (and re-painting?) our concrete floor
Posted: Sat Nov 19, 2011 5:38 pm
We had to tear out our carpet because I nearly flooded the living room by breaking a pipe. We discovered a 2' x 3' grid of finished concrete that we absolutely love. I now want to repair the divots from the tack strips and restore the floor. There are some cracks that need repair as well. The floor actually looks like it was painted originally - it's an even solid green color. We want to change the color but like the way it looks. I'm wondering what I'm going to need to do to it. I know there are a bunch of threads about concrete floors, but I think my floor is a bit different in that it was finished originally. I'm planning to try to find some sort of epoxy product to fill the divots and cracks, sand or grind it, then recoat the floor, and I'm wondering if I can just use some sort of paint. I don't want the stained semi-transparent look - I like that it's solid. Any advice?
