epoxy floor...pretty expensive?
So I've been looking up all I can about eventually putting an epoxy finish on my bare concrete floor in the basement. I've mentioned it to some friends....and nearly all of them comment on how expensive it is to do that. Now I've not looked at price yet... I haven't even measured the area that needs to be done (well, the "rec room" area is about 20x24 or so...then there's a hallway, guessing 7' wide....not sure how long, and another area at the bottom of the stairs, maybe 12x12 feet.... It's the type of project I'd like to DIY, and not sure yet if I can get it to match up right if I split it up into two or three sections (large area, hall way, then 12x12 area).
I guess I would have thought this would surely be cheaper than installing carpet and pad (which we could do ourselves)....and a lot easier to clean up...so I'm not just thinking price here. I'd rather have the epoxy over carpet....but if epoxy is insanely expensive...it may not be a recent future project either!
The numerous responses I've gotten "ohh, that's expensive" kinda got me thinkin!
