If the existing floor surface needs to be solidified and densified, the contractor might apply penetrating hardeners to the concrete. This usually happens after first stage of the grinding process. The hardeners can be used on both existing or new floors and react chemically with the concrete to result in a hard crystalline structure. In addition, the hardeners offer extra protection from staining and water penetration and also prevent the concrete dusting.
Garage Floor Paints - Garage Floor paints very in quality and preparation methods of the concrete surface before application. As I stated in various other articles I am not a big fan of any of these products. I have yet to see even one of them that has lasted more than a year or two. Of course your slab has to be clean. It must be free of oil, grease, mud, sheetrock mud, paint, adhesives etc. The reason for the failures, for the most part, is the inadequate preparation of the concrete. For any paint or epoxy to achieve a proper bond to the concrete the pores in the concrete have to be \"opened up\". This can be achieved by the use of mechanical means, shot-blasting, scarifying and/or grinding. These methods are not really readily available to homeowners or DIYers.
