I have an old garage that we have converted into a living space. We had a company come in with a view to grinding and polishing the concrete, but after the first few passes they determined the slab is in bad condition and cannot be polished. They advised a micro-topping or a self leveling compound. Micro-topping looks good but isnt thick enough to level out the inconsistencies in the slab. SLC would do the job but is very expensive (approx $4000 for 200 sqft.)

Is there a low cost DIY option - a clear poly or epoxy type product that has leveling properties? The floor has high/low spots of approx 3/8. Pictures attached.

I could live without leveling to be honest, but would like to get a clear finish and a glossy look, and to seal the dust, cracks etc.

Any recommendations for a clear sealer on it to give the similar appearance of polished concrete?

Appreciate any advice how to tackle this.

Ayuh,.... Epoxy runs 'bout $100.00 a gallon,.....

I'd think a concrete product would be cheaper, 'n probably easier,......
