I passed a truck on the way in today. From what I could make out, it
was from a seamless epoxy flooring company in my area. I thought this
might be a good way to re-surface my laundry room floor.
The current floor is ceramic one-inch-square tiles over plywood. There
are a few small areas where the tile has come off so it needs to be
redone. Having scraped all the little ceramic tiles off the kitchen
and dining room floors about eight years ago, I'd prefer an
alternative to getting down to the bare wood and re-tiling.
I googled the subject but have more research to do. Does anyone here
have experience with this sort of flooring? Am I right in thinking
that it would fill the gaps and stick to the existing tiles?
If you're asking how to re-do the floor, then the answer is:
1. Remove the bad stuff*
2. Make a decision about the replacement (Ceramic tile, vinyl tile,
linoleum, laminate, etc.).
*The "bad stuf" - in your case teeny tiles - might be made easier with a
Harbor Freight Miracle Tool. Or, if you want to spend more money, an
pneumatic tile remover (about $90.00).
Alternatively, you could just cover what's there with thinset and lay
Thanks, I'll look into a pneumatic tile remover. When I did the
kitchen and living room, I used an ice scrapper, a flat metal blade on
a long wooden pole. Having had carpal tunnel surgery since then, I'm
not sure that my wrists are up to all the impact anymore.
