Check out this floor! I love it. We had it stained in the living area of our basement.
For those of you thinking about having a floor done like this, let me say a couple of things. First of all, it cannot be a sealed concrete floor. If your concrete has been sealed, it costs quite a bit to remove that sealant. Second, the fumes are horrible. If I were living in the house and had this done, I'd probably move out for a couple of days! VERY FUMEY. (is that a word?) The only maintenance is to wax it every now and then. He said a gallon of was will last us a lifetime. I hope it's a long lifetime! And the wax is a paste type wax.
We still have to grout it. We're going to do that on our own. And after grouting you can't walk on it for 72 hours! We could use a break anyway, so we'll grout it, then take a break. What do you think?
