Good Questions: Can I Do Concrete Over Wood?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I am looking to have a polished concrete floor in my kitchen. Is it possible to have a polished concrete floor over my wooden subfloor??
My kitchen is on the main floor of my home but there is a basement below it.. I would appreciate any help or suggestions you can give me..

Thank you in advance, Rick

Dear Rick,

We're not sure about that, but suspect that if your subfloor is firm, the answer is yes.

In fact, we just found the pic up top at the Food Network, where Tyler Florence did a concrete floor OVER his upper wood floor (it looks like). Take a peek here.

Anyone??
