Unless you have an equipment rental center near you that is the \"concrete equipment\" location for a large metro area chances are that you wont even be able to rent one of these machines, let alone know how to run one. Never fear there is an easier way and if you insist upon using a \"concrete paint it will give you the best chance you have to keep it on the slab and not peel up. Notice that I didnt say I guarantee that it will keep the paint on the slab I said it would give you the best chance.
But if the crack is sinister and not the do-it-yourself kind, then it is most prudent to shell out a few dollars and hire some good repairmen. Such cracks occur due to rods which may have rusted inside and snapped or because of deterioration of the materials present within the concrete. Some leakage cracks when ignored can also reach dangerous levels. Such cracks are more found in poured concrete. Contractors treat the concrete foundation with urethane injections to extract the embedded water. They may even excavate the area around the foundation and replace the faulty tile or construct a provision for the water to lose contact with the foundation.
If you insist on a paint or \"concrete stain\" be prepared to have to redo your floor every two to three years. If you dont mind having to do this or your budget is limited please take the recommended prep to heart as this will increase your chances of longevity of your floor by a factor of at least 50%. When deciding on products for your floor try to find paint that is higher in solids than others. This will give you a better chance of receiving a good product. Behr, Duron and Olympic are good choices for this type of product.
