Hi,

I am Emma, planning to renovate old, damaged stone flooring in my home. Has anyone experienced with epoxy stone flooring? Can I install easily? I would like to know the pros and cons from your experience. Thanks in advance.

"Epoxy stone"? Is that the same thing as cultured stone, reconstituted stone, faux stone?

Epoxy stone flooring is nothing but a coating applied to the existing concrete floor.

It doesn't sound like the sort of thing we'd be encouraging here.

If the original floor is stone, why not use stone to repair it?

I see. It's an epoxy coat with crushed rock sprinkled on top as a finish layer, right?

I've seen a few of those (I do insurance claims- I go into people's houses when they're damaged).

On the whole, they're ok. People are happy with them, they look good, they last, they're not susceptible to water. They're expensive. How easy or hard to install correctly on your first try? I don't know.

This is my method of dealing with a bumpy concrete floor. With real stone, a mortar filler will work. I've never seen a plastic goo coating impregnated with this or that, that didn't come out looking like cheap shit.

Linseed oil can be used on concrete and stone. Do a color test.
