Just bought a "new" house and the basement is a bit dingy. As the first part of improving it, I was looking for something both cheap and easy to slap down on the concrete flooring. The biggest issue is that the previous owners had carpet. The sump pump backed up and the carpet was removed, but it left a thin layer of glue on the concrete. From what I could tell, epoxy floors aren't too hard to put in and are not expensive - especially for a self install - but they don't work well with glue. Unfortunately, getting the glue itself off seems to not be easy. Suggestions were everywhere from getting a small scraper to manually scrape it off to belt sanders to grind it off. Meh to all that. Is it really a bad thing to just cover all that with epoxy? Or is there something else I could put down without needing to strip the glue?
