Im sorting and clearing out my late dads garage and its pretty newish
The concrete floor has started to lift the floor paint as I dont think it was sealed first?

Whats the best and cheapest concrete sealer to use or would watered down PVA glue suffice?

Cheers

I did my garage floor a few years back ,gave it a good clean with pressure washer, sealed it with diluted p v a  adhesive, then 2 coats of floor paint, nice and now dust free, was a nightmare when ever I brushed the floor prior to sealing and painting.

That’s the case I’ve got

@mickdundee

No I don’t think so, knowing my dad he did a mix of 3/1 by hand and skimmed it as he went along
Cheapest option

I have this issue its a nightmare but never got round to sorting it out, how much does it cost to get it properly sorted would you say?

I bought this for a dusty garage floor, big tub so did a few coats

I even did the concrete that leads up to the garage and its made a big difference

Just a brushed it on with a soft broom 😁

Cheapest

Evo-stik General purpose PVA

Bond-it   

Unibond waterproof PVA

All these mixed about 4or 5 parts water to 1 part PVA for sealing. All around £15

Are you just resealing the parts that have lifted and then repainting or you thinking about redoing the whole floor.

It was a double garage in my case  seem to recall around  £ 15 for P.V.A.  £ 30 for scuttle, extention pole, roller & sleeves , £ 70 for 10 litres of heavy duty floor paint.

Prior to applying the dilute mix of P.V.A. I found wetting the floor first gave better results than when applying to a dry surface.

It’s been painted at least twice by the look of it
I’ll be taking off what’s already flaking and then sealing the concrete before it gets beyond repair
It’s only a few places where the car tyres have sat that’s worse but can be saved

Yea that could have been the problem. Car sat for a period of time, warmish weather and paint has stuck to tyres. Give it at least 2 coats and hoover all the dust off the area.

Its not a massive garage but it’s just cluttered up with whatever my dad saved
I’ve loads of rubbish to take to the tip but they won’t accept scrap metal or electrical items yet so I’m moving it from one corner to another

To be honest, I’ve evicted my mums old Rav 4 and got the RS in there now so I’m slowly making it a man cave

Seems sense though, the Rav 4 only goes out once a week and I use mine daily (normally) so we decided to use the Rav 4 for everything
It’s on it’s last legs now so we’re running it into the ground

If she gets a new car then I’ll be evicted!
