Re: [MBZ] OT: Concrete paint or other covering for shed floor

My hangar floor is painted concrete. I don't know what kind of paint, nor
how old it is, but I do know that the Chem Tool carb cleaner will dissolve
it. It is also VERY slippery when wet. I ended up buying a pair of shoes
meant for working on wet slippery surfaces from New Balance - they make as
much difference as studded snow tires vs. worn out old tires on ice/snow.

Re: [MBZ] OT: Concrete paint or other covering for shed floor

2015-06-04 Thread Mitch Haley via Mercedes
My parents bought a five gallon pail of some clear, volatile/smelly concrete
sealant made by BASF, had a gallon or so left after putting two coats on their
new 24x40 garage. Unfortunately, they took the leftover stuff to the county's
annual 'free toxic waste recycling day', so I can neither use it on my garage
floor nor tell you the product number. 

Slab was poured over a packed sand base 4-5 years ago. 
No known problems due to the coating, other than it's a bit slick when wet.

What will you store in the shed?
I always end up with an oily mess under things like the snowblower and

IF you insist upon painting, my suggestion is to put down some plywood 
on top of the concrete and paint the plywood.

'Mighty hard to correct what wasn't done before the concrete was poured. 
Any covering on a slab without a vapor barrier under it must be porous to 
allow the moisture to escape to atmosphere.


A bit late, but ask the contractor if the slab has a vapor barrier beneath 
it.

In '75, we had a problem of moisture making its way through concrete slab in 
George Air Force Base laundry - in Mojave Desert.  For MANY years, paint, 
epoxy, etc., etc., would not stay on it.  My guys (civil engineering

painted surface had little bubbles (some not so little) all over it.  Guess 
what I found when I broke a few of the bubbles - yep - water.  I told 'em, 
Let me think about it coupla days.  'Just happened to go to Sears in 
Victorville that evening.  'Walked into the appliance/tools area and 
suddenly had the answer - the area had indoor/outdoor carpet on the floor! 
'Next day I told my guys,Scrape the paint off the floor and install 
indoor/outdoor carpet of appropriate color and texture.  Shonuff - problem 
solved!

 Does the concrete have a vapor barrier (heavy plastic sheet)

Probably no plastic under unless you specified it and saw the plastic with 
your own eyes.  that means that most paints won't stay stuck because of 
moisture wicking up through the concrete.


I  had trouble with epoxy sticking with a sealer on top and no barrier 
under.  Epoxy sticks better than paint.


Talk to an epoxy contractor and see if they will guarantee their floor and 
fix it if the epoxy does not stay stuck.  Not cheap, but the industrial 
floor epoxy is better than any you or I can buy.

Yes, the better (BEST) option is to NOT paint it.

Along that line:  Cover it with 2 or more of dirt/gravel/peanut 
shells etc..  you'll be able to stand on it much longer at a time.

You have to wait 6 months or one year can't remember for the concrete to fully 
cure before you paint. Why would you want to paint anyway?
