Using self leveling cement on a garage floor


B

All, quick question. I want to self level my garage floor. The floor
has grime on it..paint, oil, etc. Should I etch the floor and power
wash before self leveling or can I just self level?

The next step after self leveling in this project is to paint the
floor using an epoxy compound. Does the new cement layer need to be
etched?

TIA,
Steven

I'll be following this thread since I want to do the same thing.

What are you planning to use as the self leveler?

The product you decide to use will include instructions on the proper
preparation of the floor.

Yes. I know it's probably not necessary, but should my wife and I
decide to convert the garage rather have the floor level now than
wait.

I missed the original message, but you don't want to have
totlally leveld floor in a garage. You want it to drain!

re: You want it to drain!

Only if it gets wet.

My garage is storage along 3 walls with the center open for project
work. It hasn't seen a car in 20 years.

The floor is pitted and I plan to "self level" it to prevent further
degredation and provide a smoother surface to work/walk/sweep on.
