I want to epoxy finish my basement/garage floor and paint the walls with Drylok. In several years we plan to remodel the basement to regular living space probably w/ a hardwood floor. But for now I'd like a fresher basement/garage. Will treating these surfaces with epoxy and Drylok interfere with an eventual remodel?
The daylight basement/garage is about 1450 square feet. The concrete floor is 20 years old and only has one minor crack. The floor is stained with auto fluids, somewhat uneven, and is roughly finished (very coarse; looks like someone smoothed it with a hand trowel). Moisture is not a problem, with no leaks. Only one full concrete block wall and the lower half of the adjoining block wall are against earth.
Last question: due to the rough state of the concrete floor, should I even bother with epoxy or paint?
