    Default Crumbling Basement Floors

    I have a 1914 home in Southern Minnesota that was built by my gr grandparents. We have two rooms in the basement where the concrete is in rough shape. The basements in our neighborhood are notorious for water and the boiler room has quite a bit of water in the spring. We do not have the resources to dig out the floors and repour, but have properly added gutters to the exterior of the home and run a sump pump in the spring.

    These rooms will remain a boiler room and laundry room. We have zero intentions of laying any sort of flooring down once this is done. I'm just sick of the dust and nastiness I've been dealing with since childhood. I'm not expecting perfection, but less nasty is appealing.

    Has anyone used a self - leveling concrete to correct/repair the basement floor cement in their older homes? I'd like insight into how these products hold up under this type of situation. Or if anyone has additional suggestions.
