Our cement screed floor has been very wet and sticky ever since it has been handed to us. About a day or two ago, we had one of the rooms set up as a trial room (so that we can test and monitor for unexpected changes of the floor). The top layer of epoxy was sanded down, it took a whole lot of sandpaper because it was so sticky that it clumps up on the sandpaper, as of now, it is ultra smooth and not sticky at all. Pictures below. We shall try Lauer's suggestion to do the moisture test tonight and see how it goes. Since we had to clear out everything in one of the rooms, I thought I will share the blinds we installed. All pictures were took in the day. It blocks out majority of the sunlight and our house feels much cooler. We love how convenient it is to adjust the brightness of the house (just roll it up slightly), and how clean it looks. We've got a good deal for our blinds, they do curtains too, pm me if you need the contact. I'll be glad to share. Living room: Charcoal Bedrooms: Stone Master Bedroom: Blackout Grey I'll share more pics of the blinds taken at night some other time. Just thinking about the hassle of emptying the house out for the sanding and epoxy is a huge nightmare. After moving all the itsy bitsy stuff, decor stuff and furniture out from one room, my arms ached for 2 days. Cannot imagine moving the rest.
