Repairing and Sealing Painted Concrete Floor
|Category:||Construction & Contractors|
Hello, thanks for taking the time to do this, you are a special bunch of people who I really respect. I have and issue I need help with. A friend was building a new home and wanted an really unique concrete floor painting. I did a colorful piece of artwork on their office floor with concrete paints and stains all water based. I sprayed an aerosol seal coating and some final touch ups. They were wanting it really durable so I wouldn’t scratch into all my hard work. I used Seal-Krete (also water based) for the final coat. It says you can do 1 or 2 coats so I did 2. Lastly I waxed the floor with one coat of a commercial wax the night before the cabinet guys and everyone else had to be in there. I was on a rushed timeline because they had to have the construction completed by a certain date and other work couldn’t get done until I was. So the floor got damaged during the cabinets install, all the way down to the concrete, now the home owners are really worried the floor won’t be durable. They are thinking to strip the wax and add more sealer. I don’t know that more sealer will be better if the instructions say only 2 coats. Or should I try to get a lot of coatings of wax to give a bigger buffer zone? How do I strip the wax if that’s the case? Thanks a ton for any help! I should add the floor is quite cold, I had a dehumidifier running all the time, but does the temp have to be warmer. It felt pretty cool but it was 90 outside some of the days and the windows were open.
