basement floors

Posted by aimee on April 21st, 2002 01:26 AM

I have a lower ceiling in the basement and a cement slab that is breaking up and crumbling in some places. The home is about 60 years old and it appears that someone has attempted to "repair" certain areas by patching with concrete. I have had a number of opinions about what to do to fix the floor, from a subfloor to tiling etc. One of the suggestions that I have seen done is kind of faux finish using a cement compound mixed with white glue and then stained and sealed. I've seen a place that has had it done and it really smoothed out the rough spots and the homeowner didn't lose any of the clearance in her low ceilings. So anyways long story, has anyone had any experience with this and if so is it hard to do and/or expensive?? Also, if you have heard anything about this, what is the mixture actually made up of? Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks
