Garage
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

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.

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

PVA will stop the dust...it will also stop the paint from adhering to the concrete.

https://www.vubasupplies.co.uk/blog/...mmon-mistakes/

Preparation is everything...any paint manufacturer worth a sh*t will supply sealer/primer for their paint,just ask what they recommend for your situation.Not recommending anyone,just an example of paint/primer/sealer..

The first time I did a new garage floor I acid etched it and painted it with cheap Leyland floor paint from Screwfix and had absolutely no problems with the paint lifting even after 3-4 years.

I have had a new house and garage built since and just painted the floor with good quality paint and it was a nightmare lifting no matter what I tried.

Last year I splashed out on R-Tek floor tiles I was so fed up with the state the floor paint was in.
