Does a primer need to be put down on bare concrete surface

Our patio is bare concrete and less than 1 year old in new condition. Can this product (2 coats) be applied directly on concrete? Is a light pressure wash enough to prep surface? Thank you, Dave
Asked by: Dv813
Any bare concrete needs a sealer.

Customer Reviews

1 gal. Sahara Decorative Concrete Coating (Case of 2) is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sucker Punched I should have listened to the other reviewers who had issues with this stuff. Like them, I prepped my covered patio according to their directions even doing the etching twice! Power washed it with a cleaner and rinsed it thoroughly. Let it dry for 2 days in the Texas heat. I gave it two coats with the special applicator that took 3.5 gallons for a 208sqft area. I let it dry an extra day. (By the way, there is little traffic on the patio. It's only my wife and I!) Whew! Yeah, huh? And yes indeed, it looked great for 4 weeks until it cracked, bubbled and peeled to the bare concrete in two spots. I do not recommend it. Steer clear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product if applied accurately I pressure washed, appied muriatic acid, neutralized with soap and water. After it dried I applied a bonding agent (this was done outside of the instructions). I then applied this product when the bonding agent was mildly tacky. By using the recommended applicator, it covered 240 sq. ft with alittle left over for touchups.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Either the product is not good or the instructions are not correct After purchasing 8 gallons of this product, at the cost of almost $50. per gallon, and all the work of putting it down. The concrete patio LOOKED FANTASTIC. Loved the color, the texture and it really dressed up the bare concrete. After a week and a half, I started noticing chips or flakes in various spots. Then it progressed into large cracks/crazing, looking like it was shrinking and pulling itself apart. Then when the lawn maintenance people used the leaf blower on the adjoining sidewalks and gardens, big chunks 6" x 12" came flying off. Home Depot has referred me to Rustoleum company. I haven't been able to tackle that just yet, but I will! This was on 2 1/2 month old concrete that had no spills on it and there had been no rain for the prior 4 days. Temperature the day I painted was 89F.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE! SHould be pulled from shelves! Product lifted and bubbled after 4 days of perfect weather conditions when we hosed it lightly off to apply a third coat. (San Diego) Store manager refunded all our cost for prep materials and product, but we still had st spend a week stripping if off. Plain old paint would of worked better??? We used all the prep products and recomendations from the product. Used it on a small concrete patio that is about 30 yrs old and very clean. VERY DISAPPOINTED , cannot believe a product could be so bad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I started using this product about 6 months ago in my bathroom. Since then I have completed my closet and Master Bedroom. Although it is for decks, patios, walkways, pool decks, & porches... I wanted to try painting the concrete in my house. The Rustoleum Decorative Concrete coating seems to be very durable so far. The color that I chose (Sahara) really looks nice in the house. It looks kind of like beach sand and the feel on bare feet is really good. Speaking of bare feet, this stuff is not slippery at all. I have no fears getting out of the shower with wet feet. Another thing I did that is "not required" is I put the Rustoleum Concrete Sealer on top of the coating. I use the "gloss clear, wet look". It looked good without it, but I thought it may be another layer of protection. In short, I am very pleased with all the Rustoleum products I am using. And I don't work for them....I just like the way it's turning out. I also used Rustoleum Epoxy Shield Concrete Etch to prep the floor. This product also worked well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT. MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW MANUFACTURERS DIRECTIONS FOR APPLICATION. The finished product is beautiful. Inexpensive way to dress up concrete floors in your home. We have dogs and carpeting is a NO NO. Easy vacumming and clean up. The prepping and application itself is timely. When the decorative coating application was done we went one more step and applied 3 coats of concrete sealer (wet look). The floors are beautiful. When we step out of the shower with wet feet, no fear of slipping. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS NO EASY PROJECT. However, well worth the the time and effort.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Run, this is not a good solution This is a poor product. Surface was prepared according to directions and using rust oleum products. I have no rain for over 2 weeks and great weather ~70 F. The overage of 125sq ft per gal is WAY off. more like 30 Sq ft per gallon. This product leave the surface so rough you cannot go bare foot. After 4 days it started peeling off. It took 7 Gallons to do what you see here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy. I was so happy with the results for about 2 months. My steps looked amazing and brand new. Then...a chip. Now, there are many chips and peels and my stairs look awful. I was initially going to stain the concrete steps and saw this product and know the quality in the "Rustoleum" name, I chose this product. Now, I can't stain the steps if I want to because this product is a covering rather than an absorbed stain. Not happy.
