Painting a Concrete Floor

By Jennifer T. Derrick
Published: June 1, 2009
Q: We have decided it’s time to remodel and refinish our walkout basement at the cabin, and we’d like to paint the concrete floor for some color. (My understanding is that you can only stain concrete floors while they’re being poured, and it looks like we missed that opportunity, otherwise we’d rather do that.) Can you recommend any coatings/paint that would be durable for indoor/outdoor traffic? What about prep? Will it peel or wear? – Elizabeth Frend; via e-mail
