Newly Built Garage, Floor Painting

Hello guys and Gals,

Well I have just had my first Garage built which has been up just over a Week now.

The Concrete Floor was also new and has been down for a Month.

At the moment the Garage is totally empty so I have a blank canvas to start with, However I am a novice when it comes to painting etc.

As you can imagine the floor is currently very dusty no matter how many times I sweep it.

I want to Paint the floor and I am not really interested in Tiling or Epoxy Resin flooring etc.

What are my options?

I have done a little research and it seems sealing the floor first using a PVA/Water mix will help to keep the dust down and then use a Garage Floor Paint over the top?

Many thanks in advance.

Screwfix do some great value floor paints, it's like most things, how deep your pockets are!
Remember........"buy cheap buy twice"
It's down to your budget and how you want it to look.
Good luck

Thanks mate,

Any more suggestions on using PVA mixed with Water prior to Painting to Seal the Concrete?

I painted my floor a year a so ago and the base was over a year old.
I am still getting the paint lifting in spots due to effervescence.
Looking at interlocking rubber tiles for the long term now.

Thank you!

Did you seal the floor first or just paint straight onto the concrete?

I painted the floor about 4 months after it was poured.
Just painted straight onto the concrete.
2 coats. I've had no issues.

Personally I wouldn't be sealing it with PVA if your going to paint it mate. I would leave it a bit longer to make sure it's well & truly dried. You could acid etch it then paint it, with a epoxy paint like this.

Newly Built Garage, Floor Painting

Are u goin to put ur car in it? I painted me with Wilkos garage paint and it looked ace......untill I put the car in over winter.

The heat in the tyres lifts the paints!

Then went with the matts. Not a big fan either. They've come up. Along with more paint.

In the end pva'd the patches and repainted. And it looks well.

So I'd say pva it and then 2 coats of Wilkos. And don't put ur car in!

Before



After



And the matts
