Resurface the rough concrete?


Any suggestions on how to resurface rough concrete that has been exposed for 7 years?
Would love to have a smooth finish on the shop floor.
Thanks, Steve

either skim coat with a smooth sticky mud or grind back down.

If you're grinding, take the time to cover things like doorways (if not an isolated building) and take all your tools out! Concrete dust gets EVERYWHERE. We had some drain work done in a concrete basement floor and what was clean the day before was covered with dust the next day.

I think Quickcrete has a product that will go on over the floor and smooth it out. At least they have been advertising it.

They make surface leveler just for that purpose, check your local hardware store or construction store.

Lay some sleepers and then tongue & groove ply. You'll love a wood floor in the shop even more than smooth concrete.
