Advice for preparing a new concrete floor for painting

Postby barlow23 » Wed Sep 21, 2011 10:45 am

I have had a new concrete floor laid in my garage and want to paint it. I have Ronseal diamond hard garage floor paint but would like to know what I have to do beforehand to seal it. Is there a solution I can use or would I have to screed it?
