Painting old concrete
« on: March 08, 2013, 04:38:24 PM »
We have a concrete veranda that is old, and has been painted with paving paint previously. We have some chairs out there and a table and it's a good area to sit and relax.
My question is can we paint the concrete with one of your products so we can get a finish that lasts?, and if so which one? the paving paint we previously used has flaked off and gets scratched by the chairs being moved around.
Putting down new concrete is not a option as it would be out of our budget, but I would be happy to pay for a good quality product like yours if it would do the job.
What would you suggest.?

Hi Marilyn,
Paving paints typically found in hardware stores are known as Alkyd paints. They really are an entry level product suited mostly for the cost conscience. While they might be fine under certain applications, their weakness becomes quickly apparent once exposed to say abrasion!
Our Concrete Paint Sealer is a sealer first that just so happens to be pigmented so you can be assured of a definite increase in durability compared to a retail over the counter paint product.
While no sealer will last forever all we can guarantee is a dramatic increase in abrasion resistance. Concrete Paint Sealer is used throughout the country on warehouse and light industrial applications so will certainly stand up to residential traffic.
Hope this helps and any further questions please do not hesitate to ask!
