Like all types of concrete work, painting concrete block surfaces has a few steps that need to be completed before starting to paint.

• First, the area being painted has to be well swept and debris taken before starting. Proper surface preparation is one of the most important steps in painting concrete block surfaces. Cover anything that is close to where you are painting.

• Clean the concrete of any spills or stains. This can be done with our heavy-duty concrete stain remover. This is also a very important step. If left untreated, the stains will prevent the paint from properly adhering to the concrete.

• Make sure the concrete is dry and adhesive free. This will ensure a uniform color or finish across the whole surface being painted.

• Etch the concrete with an acid etcher. Once applied it can make the concrete surface able to take a coat of paint much better. It does this by roughening the concrete. Rinse after etching.

You are now ready to paint. Make sure you have the right products for the type of surface you have. There are thousands of varieties of colors and tones, so take your time. Be sure to mix the products well before application. If your spray system has a recirculation system, it will mix it for you.

Even though there is a fair amount of prep work required to paint concrete block surfaces, the results can be transformational. You can rid your house or building of that dull lifeless concrete by painting them. The results will be a beautiful, low maintenance, stunning surface that will be the focal point in any room
