epoxy flooring

I have done a little research and I am interested in doing an epoxy floor in my basement. On one site I read that fixing cracks and imperfections was optional... My basement is a little rough and there is a few smal cracks. I was wondering how thick is the epoxy coating?, how does it look if you don't fix imperfections?, what brand did you use?, and do you like it?

Thank You for your time.

I put epoxy flooring on my garage floor. It seems a bit thicker than normal paint but its still going to show cracks or imperfections if you don't fill them. I used this:

I love it as a garage floor. It cleans up stains nicely, but not sure how it would be as a basement floor.

RE: epoxy flooring

hey, i'm interested in the same thing--doing epoxy paint in the basement. my friend in phoenix has it in her garage and it looks great. i'm in the midwest and my only concern whether the basement will be too cold if we have a painted concrete floor vs. wall-to-wall carpet. where are you in your plans?
