Most importantly – it is both easy and quick to create a hard-wearing concrete floor with Conteco. Are you ready to get started? Read below how to do it.

DIY concrete floor:

  • Before you start, please make sure that the chosen surface is clean and even. If applying Conteco on wooden floors, we recommend gluing vinyl onto the surface beforehand in order to obtain the classic, even concrete look. If used on clinkers or tiles, we recommend spackling and priming the entire surface before applying Conteco. As Conteco is applied in thin layers, joints and unevenness will show on the finished surface if not evened out before application. Panels must be masked off.
  • Mix Conteco according to the product instructions.
  • Apply the first layer by pouring Conteco on the floor in small portions and distributing it in a thin layer – as thinly as possible (approx. 0,5 mm) using a tool of your choice, according to the desired surface. If you are not satisfied with the result – you can always add another layer.
  • The drying time is 30-60 minutes per layer at room temperature (21-23 °C, 50% humidity). Before applying the next layer, moisten the surface using a water atomizer. This will ensure optimal adherence.
  • Apply additional layers in the same way as the first layer, until the desired result is obtained. This normally takes around 2-3 layers.
  • When the result is as desired and dried up, treat the surface with Conteco Color Sustainer. Apply the product in a thin layer and massage it onto the surface with a microfiber cloth.
  • At last, apply Conteco Concrete Sealer to the surface in two layers according to the directions in our guide. Let the surface harden – and enjoy your new floor.
