Patching up a concrete wall


I'm getting ready to paint, but first I need to fill in these gouges. What product would I use for this?

Patching up a concrete wall


w/wire brush or rotary drill w/brush,,, blow out dust or wash w/clean wtr,,, patch while still damp,,, we'd use sika avail at h/dlowe'sacehdweetc,,, imo, i haven't found a suitable paint that'll ' hold ' on conc, tho,,, coatings, yes, but paint, no.

just my $.03

Patching up a concrete wall


I all depends on what kind of a job you want.

DryLok and UGL are DIY products.

Thoro products has a complete line designed for commercial and industrial construction and concrete renovation/repairs. The basic material is Thoroseal that is also used for residential. There also is a second finish coat, Thorosheen, that is a 100% acrylic material for more finished surface that has several different sheens and many colors. There is also Thoroglaze that is more of a protective/pollution protection.

You rarely see them in residential construction because of the intended use, but they do work and are more costly than the "big box" products.

Patching up a concrete wall


for many years, i wouldn't on my own home altho the previous owner painted 1 below-grade wall w/(ugl-dri-lock-???),,, it now must be scaled off &, depending on what i find, either repair'd or left alone,,, if i need do anything, it'll be zypex.

we used thoroseal at rutgers-newark & it work'd great but that was on rooftop structures,,, imn-s-hfo, h/dlowe'sacehdwe don't carry pro grade mtls but h/o & diy grades only in these items.
