The house I will close soon has scored concrete floor in most area except bedrooms. However, I don't like the feel of this concrete floor on my bare feet. I live on some where called "Gulf Shore".

Just curious how many of you guys like concrete floor over hardwood floor.

Any one knows how to coat concrete floor to have non-sticky feel on it? I'd appreciate your inputs.

You are not clear. You dont like the feel of stained and scored concrete. What do you mean to eliminate a sticky feel? Stained and scored concrete is nice and smooth, the only complaint is it is cold on the feet in winter.

Then you ask about putting concrete over hardwood? Did you mean the other way around? Yes indeed you can put hardwood over concrete. You will just have to lay a vapor barrier first.

It's much easier and cheaper to just buy some large area rugs.

Please let me try to describe in more detail. I've heard the concrete floor has urethane coating on it. And, I believe that sticky feel should come from shiny urethane coating. Someone told me that I can go with urethane with matte finish. I simply do not know what it is.

My question was about putting hardwood floor on concrete floor.

I would just throw area rugs over the scored concrete.

Its also more tha like that the sticky feel is from cleaners etc used o the concrete. Afterall hardwood floors also have close to the same coating as a finish.

If you do not want to keep the concrete in the bedrooms, then yes you can do hardwood over the concrete. You can get larger rugs with padding so they will not slide in the bedrooms. Otherwise the last two comments are quite excellent suggestions.
