What Paints Can You Use on Concrete?

paints can use concrete

Though you can use any paint onplaster primer concrete, some kinds prove better suited for certain types of concrete surfaces. Learn which finishes will prove most resilient on concrete floors, statues and walls, or finish failure will prove possible. Learn how to condition the concrete for adhesion, or no type of paint will prove durable in the long run.

Concrete Walls

  • Ordinary latex paint is well-suited for interior concrete walls. Use an eggshell or satin latex paint on concrete walls that aren't exposed to much duress. For concrete walls within weight rooms, work rooms and kids' play rooms, choose a semi-gloss latex paint that will resist stains. If you plan to paint exterior concrete walls and fences, use an exterior acrylic paint that will hold up to ultraviolet light and harsh weather conditions.

Considerations

  • No type of paint will adhere to improperly-prepared concrete. Prime vertical concrete surfaces, or the paint will eventually chip. Use a latex primer on interior walls; use an acrylic primer on exterior walls. Smooth horizontal concrete surfaces do not require a primer; however, they will reject paint unless they are treated with an acid etch.
