Crumbling garage concrete floor

Postby Harve » Thu Feb 19, 2009 8:50 pm

Can anyone help please, Have a concrete garage floor about 4 years old that is crumbling away, it is now very pitted, dusty and uneven. Any suggestions please as to whether I can repair it with some sort of screed or self leveling compound, or will a new floor have to be laid?

Self levelling compound is fine but pick the right product - ask your supplier - different makes have a number of compounds.

Four years is not very "old" for a concrete floor, you would be throwing good money away trying to repair it, break it out and install a new floor.
