  • painting wet basement floor ?

    What do I do to make paint stick to my basement floor? The floor keeps popping off the paint after a year or two because of water coming up through it ?

    Hello First and foremost you need to solve the water problem. Is is leaking or just dampness? If just dampness a good dehumidifier may be the answer. Poured concrete slab floor will have a laitance surface. Which is sand, cement and water mixture that rises to the top as the aggregate sinks during cure. Removing the laitance about the thickness of a dime will increase the bond of paint.
