Sealing a garage floor

Wes Beckwith
The floor of your garage is exposed to intense corrosion and deterioration due to road salt, oils and other auto fluids.  Sealing your garage floor reduces dust and makes cleaning and sweeping easier.

Also the same sealers can be used on concrete walks and driveways or as a primer under acrylic or polyurethane floor paints. You should take care when and where you apply a sealer because they cannot be applied over paint or other coatings. In order to do the sealing ...
