Garage floor pitted, deteriorating
Q. Our twenty-four year old concrete garage floor is slowly deteriorating. There is much pitting, especially where we park our cars, and quite a bit of dust from this deterioration. Wondering the best method to protect the floor to keep down the dust and continued pitting of the floor. Assume we would apply some sort of sealant, if so would be concerned about any increased slipping potential due to applying a product over the floor. Can you provide us some guidance on how to treat this problem?
A. The best advice I can give you is to have a concrete contractor apply a thin topping containing a vinyl additive for better adhesion onto the entire garage floor.
This should be followed by a sealant to protect the new topping from the effects of road salt tracked in during the winter.
Ask the contractor if he or she have had success adding a special grit to the sealant to make the repair less slippery when wet.by
