Brief list of home improvement FAQs
Question: Can i paint over a concrete?
ANSWER: Yes, of course, you can! To effectively paint over concrete you must take these simple steps:
- The concrete must be cleaned from dirt, grease, and/or oil.
- The old paint has to strip. If it is interior concrete it’s a good idea to also seal the concrete. Interior sealing is essential to preventing moisture from seeping in and preventing mold development.
- The concrete must be primed.
- Masonry paint is a great choice, especially for outdoor concrete, since they block off moisture penetration.
