Dusty and Bumpy Garage Floor - Advise Please

Postby AdamD123 » Wed Feb 15, 2023 3:45 pm


This is my first post on the forum, so please go easy! We recently moved into our first house and I am after advice on my garage floor.

I have a dusty and quite bumpy garage floor. I mainly want to stop the dusty floor and then paint the floor to finish and make the garage much neater, as I plan to use the area as a garage gym.

I don't find the information as straight forward as I thought it would be, in regards to best products to use, some people mention sealing or PVA first and others disagree and state self-level won't adhere to certain sealers. Some people mention not self-levelling and going straight for an Epoxy resin/coating. Can anyone advise on the best method and products to use?

Kind regards,

Hi adamd123,
Provided you vacuum and dampen the floor self levelling compound should be fine. If you are going to paint it do not use a levelling compound with latex. If you do paint the floor the garage will no longer be suitable for cars.
