I am fairly new to resin works. I have a floor that I want to use resin on to make it unique. I will be using the room with the resin floor for a craft room. Has anyone used resin as a flirting or is it impractical?
I think that it would be more cost prohibitive than anything else......
I don't think that a very thin coat would hold up well against an office type chair w/ caster wheels rolling around on it.
Most homes expand and contract with heating and cooling (outside temp.s, not HVAC) ......floors are no different. If a small fracture or crack would develop, then it would be just a matter of time before the floor would start chunking up....think pot holes in a street. I put down vinyl square tiles in my hobby room over the original hard wood floor....when expansion occurs , I can see small gaps between some of the tiles. When contraction occurs, there are no gaps...just like when I laid the tiles originally.
There are epoxies made just for floors, mostly just for concrete, but there could be some for use over wood floors. Google search indicates the life of an epoxy resin floor is 2 - 3 years depending on traffic. Most sources I've seen say this can be prolonged with proper maintenance and regular cleaning.
