Cost-effective flooring over slab?
Our in-laws have an slab foundation and wood flooring mostly — but not in the entryway — leaving a 1 3/4″ elevation difference. To make it more wheelchair accessible, we would like raise the entryway floor elevation to more closely match the wood floor.
A quote for tile installation was about $3800 for 240 square feet (including Quick Level, Ditra, 2.50/ sqft porcelain tile), so I would like to explore other options. I recall there was some kind of tan-coloured pourable material that was concrete based but less likely to crack. It had something added – maybe rubberized. All of the entryway doors are set up to allow for wood flooring throughout, otherwise we might look at finishing the bare concrete.
