Is etching on concrete floor before applying epoxy or paint
Hi hope all is well. I want to clean and paint the garage and basement concrete with a waterproofer or epoxy. At first I was going to epoxy but thought that it might be easier to use drylok floor paint. When reading the instructions it said to etch the floor before painting to make the floor a sandpaper consistency. The idea of acid etching the floor is turning me off to the idea. Is etching necessary with either application? Is there a waterproofer that doesn’t require etching?
