I have a home built in 1956. Garage floor is flaking/crumbling at the
surface, mostly under where the cars are parked. I need to stop this effect
before I end up needing a whole new floor.
I have seen some clear sealants that dry hard and can be layered. I was
also figuring I could use some kind of diluted cement and fill in the
pitting and put a thin layer over the whole garage?
Both of these ideas seem hackish, is there a product specifically made for
You have a 48 year old floor. It's too late to fix it. It's time to
replace it. Sorry there is no easy fix. Oh yea, if you go to the internet
or the hardware store someone will be glad to sell you something that they
are willing to tell you will work. But next year, if that long, you will be
right back here again.
The closest to something thing reasonable are the vinyl cement products,
they will not work in your situation. You would just be wasting your time
Maybe cover it with a roll vinyl product (linoleum). Get something
with a texture, not smooth. I really like the look of tile in a garage
and it helps keep the house clean. You won't be tracking dust and dirt
I'm just tossing this out - I don't know if it's feasable (or wise). I
tiled the garage in my last house and it looked great. The house I'm
in now came with tile, I think it's just cheapie self stick tiles but
it works great. I don't think individual tiles will work for you but
maybe something on a roll would.
