I want to paint a cement floor in an old warehouse that is now an antique store.

This question is from 1-gal. 1-Part Epoxy Concrete and Garage Floor Paint Base
Asked by
Antique Dealer
Santa Rosa, CA
July 9, 2012
This was an automobile dealership in its earlier life (about 80 years ago) so there is likely to be oils etc. on/in the cement. Is this the right product and would the cleaner/etcher be recommended? Is the bonding primer really necessary if it will not be subjected to tire traffic?

ABSOLUTELY NOT!! Clean well with detergent and floor machine, let dry thoroughly, scrape and clean any remaining oily residue with solvent. Given its age and if it was never painted before you might get away without grinding the surface and acid etching provided you use Sherwin-Williams solvent-based ArmorSeal Rexthane (which is not cheap, but goes a long way, is high gloss and will take all manner of traffic), Benjamin Moore's acrylic/urethane, or Sherwin-Williams old-fashioned acrylic floor paint. You may not need a primer either. I would email their customer service depts for more detailed advice. They'll be glad to help. Read Less

Hi Antique Dealer,
Thanks for you interest in our BEHR Premium Floor Coating products. For your old warehouse floor, we would recommend the BEHR Premium 2-Part Epoxy Garage Floor Coating or the BEHR Premium 1-Part Epoxy Concrete & Garage Floor Paint.

Hi Antique Dealer,
Thanks for you interest in our BEHR Premium Floor Coating products. For your old warehouse floor, we would recommend the BEHR Premium 2-Part Epoxy Garage Floor Coating or the BEHR Premium 1-Part Epoxy Concrete & Garage Floor Paint. Both products are great epoxy coatings but 2-Part Epoxy is ideal for interior concrete floors.
The BEHR Premium 2-Part Epoxy is a durable interior concrete floor coating that is sold in a project kit (includes Epoxy, Activator, Applicator Tools, Cleaner/Etcher, Decorative Flakes and Instruction Guide). The BEHR Premium 1-Part Epoxy is a durable interior/exterior floor coating that is great for multiple concrete areas.
Cleaning and etching the surface is a necessary and crucial step. Making sure the surface is clear of any sealers, old peeling paint, grease and stains. Achieving a medium grit sand paper profile is critical for the ideal finish for both epoxy products. BEHR 1-Part Epoxy will require you to use a cleaner/etcher product such as the BEHR Premium Concrete & Masonry Cleaner & Etcher. BEHR 2-Part Epoxy has a cleaner/etcher concentrated quart included in the kit.
The BEHR Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer is necessary if you choose the BEHR 1-Part Epoxy, however BEHR 2-Part Epoxy has a bonding primer built-in. If you do not intend to subject the area to tire traffic, it will still benefit you to use the BEHR Bonding Primer with BEHR 1-Part Epoxy because it provides better adhesion and abrasion resistance.
Thank you. Read Less

I have an old basement floor I want to redo. It previously had tiles back from the 60s or 70s that were removed but some of the black stuff (I think old glue) is stuck on the floor and there are some bumps and divets in places. What is the best way to prep the floor before applying this product? Also, what needs to be done once it's prepped?

Answer: 
Hello Lotta,
Thanks for your interest in Behr paint for your basement floor. Based on the state of the floor, we'd recommend starting out by removing all the black residue/glue. Then, please fill any divets or other surface unevenness with a paintable concrete filler. Next, etch the floor with a chemical etcher. After that comes a primer like our No. 880 Bonding Primer. Finally, you'd be ready to paint Read More

Hello Bobbie,
Thanks for your question. To apply our 1-Part Epoxy which is a paint to a concrete floor, there are first a few prep steps we'd recommend. If the surface is bare concrete, then start by etching with a product like our No. 996 Muriatic Acid Etcher. Then, apply a product like our No. 880 Bonding Primer to promote adhesion of the paint.

Next would be the paint itself. To apply this product, you can use a 3/8" nap roller, pad applicator, or a nylon/polyester paint brush. One or two coats may be applied, depending on the coverage and workup of the color on the first coat. For uniformity, apply the second coat in a criss-cross direction. If there's intact paint on the surface, then you would only have to spot etch and spot prime the bare concrete areas before painting (skip these steps if there's a previous paint or stain and it's free of bare concrete areas). Well wishes!

Answer: 
Hello john,
Thanks for your question. We only recommend applying either coat of this product when temperatures are between 50 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. If either coat is applied beyond the range of temps, then there could be performance issues with the coating (bubbling, peeling, milky haze, etc.). Please give the second coat at least two hours before air and surface temps will be near 90 degrees. Well Read More

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gawd awful stuff! Based on my experience virtually all the bad results reported with this paint, both here and on the Behr website are true. The paint is thin, doesn't adhere well to many surfaces, streaks, dries slowly, remains tacky and hard to clean. It is also duller than desired for a floor finish. In no way is it suitable for a garage, nor would I used it in a basement, especially not if previously painted. I ended up using three coats, which I applied a week apart. The first barely covered the 40-yr-old acrylic paint in my laundry room. The second covered better, but was all streaks and lap marks, which I concluded were the result of the paint separating almost immediately after pouring into the tray. When I complained to Behr they refunded my money, and I explored other alternatives, but worried about adhesion problems at this point, and in the interest of getting it done after weeks of being without laundry facilities, I ended up buying another gallon. I used it within a day and thorough shaking. However, finding that it had already separated quite a bit, I used an electric drill mixer for about ten minutes to get a uniform color before placing enough for the job in the pan, and mixed it frequently with a stick while applying. This paint quickly separates into lighter and darker components, dark on top, the lighter, which I take to be the epoxy solids, on the bottom. Mixing it changes the color quite dramatically, and, if, after mixing, you pour it into a pan, and then for instance, immediately cut with it, and roll even a few minutes later, you will likely find the cut area to be quite a bit lighter than the rolled area. The more cutting and nooks you have to do, the more difficult getting an even application will be. Despite all the pains I took I still came out with one pass with the roller much darker than the rest in a room not 10' x 10' which I did in less than an hour. Ten days later the floor was still not ready for the washer and dryer, and was scuffed by a rug pad, and in one place, peeled. Since I expect to be ripping up this room again in the near future to replace a waste stack, I'm not as upset as I ought to be by that, and only hope that it does eventually make a good substrate, but I'm not about to try it again. If you want a good basement and garage paint, use a urethane, like Sherwin-Williams solvent-based ArmorSeal Rexthane, Benjamin Moore's acrylic/urethane, or Sherwin-Williams old-fashioned acrylic floor paint. By the way, the Kilz and, I believe, the Drylok, 1-part epoxy paints are all the same product. July 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by garbage We bought two cans of this one black one orange to do the garage floor in checkers- we ended up sanding it off and buying a much superior product from Cloverdale paint. The orange was completely transparent- no matter how many layers we tried to put on- and then it started to peel. The black peeled as well.Save yourself time and money and don't purchase any Behr products. They are the worst. June 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garbage This paint refuses to harden as an epoxy should do. 3 weeks after the application the paint feels tacky and scuffs off. The old surface was power washed, scrubbed with a commercial floor polisher and acid etched then power washed again. It was allowed to dry for 2 days before I applied the paint. Now I have to find a way to remove this stuff so I can resurface with a different product. May 18, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of time and money Followed the directions to the letter. Power washed the carport, etched it with Behr etcher, applied Behr primer. Put on 2 coats of paint.,waited 2 weeks before we drove on it. Now after 8 months it's all coming off where the car tires contact the surface.Looks terrible. Absolute junk...last time I would buy Behr products. All the work gone to waste March 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ignore the bad reviews I painted my basement floor 3 years ago and it looks like the day I finished painting, even in high traffic areas. Success with these coatings is 100% dependent on following instructions and prepping the floor correctly. I can guarantee that the guy who brought the house and had peeling paint had a previous owner who slapped a coat on to look good, but failed to clean, degrease, and etch properly. This is great paint. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT USE! Ever...! Run away from this product! The fact that there are five star reviews is a travesty. I purchased a house where it had been used recently, and within three weeks of closing it started to peel EVERYWHERE. Removal from concrete is expensive, imperfect, and awful. Just read the product's label! It says DO NOT use where exposed to "hydrostatic pressure." That means "the weight of water." But it's billed as "exterior" paint, perfect for pool side patios. Buy something better (which will most likely mean more expensive; this is an inappropriate price point for exterior walkway or patio paint). If you don't, it will be an expensive mistake. May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Use Purchased this for our garage floor and our basement floor. Turned out OK on our basement floor. Our garage floor is horrible. We followed instructions exactly. We didn't put anything heavy in our garage for over a month - didn't even park our cars in it since we wanted to make sure it set and wouldn't peel up. Even two months after the application, we were still finding new spots where the paint came off. It especially is coming off under our tires. We don't even have huge, heavy cars! Now we're waiting through the winter but have to figure out how to fix it when the weather gets nicer. It'll be hard to fix just the spots since the speckling/painting will become uneven. I would not recommend this product. February 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointing Results I used this product to paint the floor of a large garage. The concrete had cured for several years and I used cleaner & etch to prep the floor as directed. Several issues: the drying time was excessive; at least 3 days before the tackiness abated; and coverage was adequate at best. A few leaking motors have stained the paint completely. No big deal for me, but others might find this unacceptable. I have used an other manufacturer's 2-part product from Home Depot with great success, so that is what I will use from now on.
