I spent hours researching online for a product that would protect the concrete and wouldn't need to be reapplied every couple of years. We bought one product from Home Depot but when I went and looked at the reviews, all their products seem to eventually peel off. This is really a one-shot opportunity for us. It is highly unlikely we'll ever be willing to move back out of the garage to clean and reseal the floors.
DryWay. I still don't know if this was the right product, but if it doesn't work, you're sure to hear about it later. =)
The product came last week, so today Jeff and I worked on clearing out the garage so we could finally get this project finished. It was sort of amazing how full the garage had gotten in the month since it was finished.
It took us several hours to get it cleared out. Then we had to pull up the paper protecting the the floor. Finally, we went through and thoroughly swept and vacuumed the concrete.
Since it was still light out, Jeff decided to just go ahead and apply the sealer tonight rather than wait until tomorrow. It really only took him about a half-hour and now it's done! Hopefully enough of it penetrated the cement, because he didn't need nearly as much as the package said it would take.
It's very shiny. :)ReplyDelete
I'm expecting the shine will go away once the sealer dries. I guess we shall see tomorrow.ReplyDelete
Yey, you! Can't wait to see all the progress in January!ReplyDelete
