Practical considerations for floor painting

Painting the floor of a garage, basement or other room is a worthwhile home improvement project that protects and beautifies the floor. The coat of paint keeps the floor free of stains and gives it a brand-new look. However, finding the right concrete floor paint is important to creating the proper finish.

Types of Floor Paint

Selecting the right paint for your project takes a bit of time and research. There are many types of concrete floor paint available; in general, though, a water-based paint will produce results that are inferior to a solvent-based paint.

The floor may also need to be etched to allow the new paint to permeate and properly adhere to it. To check if the floor needs to be etched, sprinkle a few drops of water on the cleaned floor a...
