Painting Patio Floor

I have a patio floor, undercover but next to caged pool, that I need to repaint.  I have pressure washed it already.  Do I need to use sealant or primer before repainting?  What kind of paint do I use?  Thanks.

There are a few things to consider before painting:


Is the surface bare or previously painted?  If bare concrete - then you will need to etch the concrete with muriatic acid, apply a bonding primer, and paint it with our 1-Part Epoxy.  If it has been previously painted – then just paint it with the 1-Part Epoxy.

Another choice is the textured Deck Restore product - a thick textured coating that hides cracks and imperfections on the surface.   It’s cooler to the touch than traditional coatings and will provide a secure slip resistant surface for around the pool.






Hope this helps.
