Concrete Floor Diy?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with doing concrete floors themselves? I have a kitchen with older tile, and I just wanted to put concrete on top to give it an "industrial look."

Anyone know of concrete mix I can purchase and some tips on how to do this myself?

Thanks in advance!

Don't think you can put cement over tiles, unless is very thick, cement and concrete expands and shrinks causing it to crack. pouring and leveling is also not easy.

You might want to consider lying over tiles that looks like concrete.

hi,

you should look for something call floor screed... which is meant for the floor. Google and you will know what I mean.

your cement should be pretty thick, at least 4cm. I think if you just layer that much cement on top of the kitchen, you might break some building code.

heh.... yeah, and it's not easy to layer as well, as pentiumpc said..... perhaps you should find a small area to try out before you go big bang.
