Flooring for workshop

marys1000February 5, 2006

A friend just had a Lestor bldg put up but the guys

that did the cement floor didn't do a very good job

leveling the floor.

He had planned to put down vinyl squares for flooring

but now is worried about the uneveness.

For examle - where the grooves are, the edges are

higher than the rest of the floor. I think the outside

corners are a different levels. It doesn't look bad but

say when you put up a ladder in different places you can tell.

So now he's thinking of some sort of prefabricated system

where you put the floor on a foam product so the squares

can float.

Has anyone had a similar experience they dealt with and

had a successful conclusion? Or tried something in a similar

situation that they have been unhappy with the results?



P.S. he's looking for something nice but workshopish and

not too expensive.

get some self leveling cement and pour it on the floor. it should level it out, as this is what the flooring folks use to even out floors before tiling.
