Hi all,

"So, wandering Lowe's the other day,...
I could, of course ask the young clerk at the home improvement store, but
his goal is sales, right? I'd rather have a potter's opinion. What's
your dream floor?"


I would not hesitate to ask the hired hands about the best product, they
are paid by the hour and can use the experience explaining the products.
Most know what would be best if you till them the application. Home
Depot has free classes in home repair including floor covering, much to
the dismay of those of us who do houses once in a while. Why pay someone
when you can learn to do it yourself.
One way I've learned a lot is to ask different stores what I need and
use the concenses method and go where I have the best rapour or deal.
Once ya get to know the people they are even more helpfull.
I would look at drainage around the slab to wick away water and probably
seal the floor, but don't take my word for it, I haven't done many
floors. My present work room has vinel.
Good luck, keep going!
