Painting concrete can be tricky. Follow my step by step process for a perfect finish on your next concrete or paving project. Watch my in depth video at the end for the full step by step process.
Bare Concrete
Bare concrete can look ugly with stains from oil, vegetation & dirt. It's very hard to keep clean!
Wash & Clean
1st step in the painting process is to clean thoroughly. Sweep or blow clean then an acid wash followed by a water wash.
Ist Coat
1st coat is thinned with turps or water (depending on the paint used).
2nd Coat
2nd coat is full strength. Remove that masking tape!

    Looks great!!! What size garage? And how many hours did you work each day? We are old and have to rest every so often!

    What if there are quite a few cracks--will this work to cover those up?
