Patio and Concrete Paint

Bring a fresh look to your home and garage with patio and concrete paint

Patio and Concrete Paint

When giving your home a painting refresh, don’t forget about the floors that may also need some TLC. Take a good look at your porch and concrete walkways and the floor of your garage and basement. If these surfaces are looking unkempt, consider giving them a makeover. This guide will walk you through the differences between concrete porch paint, concrete and deck restorer, concrete stain, garage and floor paint.

Concrete Porch Paint

If your concrete porch and walkways are looking rough, apply an acrylic latex porch and floor paint.

Low-luster acrylic latex is resistant to UV rays, scuffing, fading, cracking and peeling, making it an excellent choice for hiding imperfections and providing durable and efficient coverage.

These porch paints also feature an enamel finish that provides a stylish look that resists mold and mildew growth to help maintain a pristine appearance.

Application and care

  • 1 gallon of acrylic latex porch paint will cover up to 400 square feet.
  • When it needs a good cleaning, just use warm soapy water. Give the surface a good scrubbing and let air dry.

Concrete and Deck Restorer

If your wood deck and concrete floors or patios are developing cracks and looking tattered, concrete and deck restorers will revitalize these surfaces, making them look new again.

Deck and concrete restorers are up to 10 times thicker than paint or stain, and fill cracks up to ¼-inch thick.

Restorers are ideal for old wood, brushed concrete and synthetic decking that has been previously coated. They also provide excellent slip resistance and are durable, with each new application lasting up to 12 years. They offer lasting protection against moisture build-up. Make sure you choose the correct type for the surface you want to refresh as concrete restorers will not work on decks and deck restorers will not work on concrete.

Application and care

  • 1 gallon of restorer covers up to 100 square feet.
  • A wide variety of colors are available.
  • To ensure good results, two coats are recommended.

Concrete Stain

Concrete stains are durable, water-repellent, and typically found in solid colors designed to protect and enhance exterior and interior concrete surfaces.

They are siliconized acrylics with high-performance resins that form a strong, long-lasting, opaque film on properly prepared surfaces.

Proper use will extend the life of the following surfaces: concrete, masonry walls, basements, patios, sidewalks, driveways, garage floors, pool decks, tennis courts, cement blocks, pillars and brick. Concrete stains resist scuffing, fading, cracking and peeling, and can stand up to household chemicals.

Application and care

  • 1 gallon of concrete stain covers up to 600 square feet.
  • Once dry, clean as needed with warm soapy water.
  • Wipe down with medium force using a sponge, and allow enough time to air dry completely before walking on the surface.

Garage & Porch Paint

For garages and floors that encounter tires, vehicles and outdoor power equipment, choose a high-performance, epoxy-based floor paint that resists hot tire pickup and marring.

The finishes of these floor paints are highly resistant to chemicals, oil and gasoline, which reduces the need for maintenance of hard-to-clean floors. The durable satin finish resists scuffing, fading, cracking, peeling and blistering, making it ideal for garage floors, driveways, basements, porches and shed foundations.

Application and care

  • 1 gallon of garage and floor paint covers 300 to 500 square feet.
  • Consider 2 coats if surfaces encounter many tires.
  • Clean with heavy-duty soap when surface starts looking worn.
  • Let soap sit on the surface for 20 to 30 minutes, then hose off.
  • Allow to air dry before parking vehicles or outdoor power equipment.
