  1. Amanda,
    You should check the warranty information, and the estimated time the manufacturer is saying the product will be good for. That should give you an idea of which will be the best to use. Since there are different epoxies available, yes there could be a difference in the epoxy itself.

  2. Do you know anything about “Allure” flooring over concrete basement floors? I need to replace the carpet that is down (due to pets) and need help as to what to put down. The area to cover is almost 1000 Sq.ft. and is used as “living space”. Please help!

  3. I have a back entry way that is concrete stairs and floor. To access the basement you have to go through the kitchen and through the entryway. We just got the walls insulated but the floor is so cold and not comfortable to walk on in the winter without shoes. I’m not sure what to put down on the floor and stairs to make it more comfortable, yet in a high traffic area. I’m also concerned about condensation. Any ideas would be wonderful. Thanks!
