How to Patch Cracks in a Concrete Floor

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Rick in South Carolina is on the line with a concrete question. Tell us what’s going on.

    RICK: I have a garage floor and it has several cracks in it. And I’m anticipating painting the floor but I was going to see if there was something I could do to cover the cracks so they wouldn’t show so badly.

    TOM: Yeah, you’re going to have to patch those first and the way you do that is with an epoxy patching compound. Epoxy is sticky enough where it will really adhere to the old concrete and fill those cracks in nicely and then you can paint on top of that.

    RICK: OK.

    LESLIE: And that’s really the only thing that’s going to stick. If you try to fill it with more concrete, it’s just going to crack right out.

    RICK: OK. Well, I thank you so very much.

    TOM: You’re welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
