Painting the garage floor
Painted my a few years back to help seal the concrete. Can remember the name of the paint but it was garage floor specific and not from B&Q. Green if that helps.
Clean wash and dry the floor first otherwise you are painting over the dust and rubbish and the paint will peel.
Don’t start painting by the door and work your way backwards to the corner. That would be really silly and slightly embarrassing when you have to phone your wife in the house to try and build a bridge to get out. Apparently. 😉Posted 4 years agomatthewjbSubscriber
I used International Garage Floor Paint. It contains a ‘slip-resistant additive’ ie sand so you don’t create an ice rink.
I did mine a half at a time moving everything to one side. My only regret is not filing in a few of the holes in the floor before I painted. Once the paint is down the blemishes are really obvious. I’d also pressure wash the floor.Posted 4 years agosuperfliMember
Just done mine, but it was a new build so easier than most. 2 coates or whole tin of Thompsons Concrete Seal http://www.diy.com/nav/build/building-materials/building-chemicals/paving_seal/Thompson-s-Concrete-Seal-Clear-5L-9273010?skuId=9282710
then about 5 coates of Ronseal Diamond Hard Floor paint
More coates than I wanted due to the paint being different colour (or not mixed properly) on my 3rd coat! Lots of people say this in the reviews too. Make sure you mix it really well before using.

Chaps, looking at sealing my garage floor whilst the weather is good and would like a little advice. I’m wanting to seal the old dusting concrete and am thinking of using SBR as it’s waterproof unlike PVA. Should I dilute the SBR or use it neat? Not bothered about painting it yet just need to seal it. Cheers.Posted 4 years ago
