welp, not sure where i could post it and that home refurbishers site seems to only get traffic from spammers so here it goes:
im going to have to seal a 3600 sq ft slab soon. its for a rescue that is moving their dog program into a temporary facility ( for a year) while a new one is constructed.
theres gonna be a wee bit of pee so we want to seal the slab beforehand.
with that, any recommendations for a sealer or other product to use the seal the slab?

You might check out the Super-Seal brand for concrete. With animals, I would assume silicone base would be preferable over an epoxy base.

Google “concrete sealer for dog kennels”. There are several brands that are made specifically for kennels.

If the concrete is new, I’d worry about outgassing before sealing. I sealed new concrete too soon with epoxy and I had some bad peeling problems from the outgassing of the new concrete..

Yeah typically there is a 6 month minimum wait for concrete or concrete pavers before they suggest sealing. The seal will work fine, it just shows the efflorescence that usually will come to the top, and wash or wear off. If it’s wet enough as it comes to the top, it’ll peel your topcoat.

I’d look up some kennels, and ask what they do? Every dog pees, and if they are on concrete, it’s gotta effect it all the same.

My wife owns a cat café and we had the same issue. Sherman Williams has a great product that we have found worked very well on her old,old concrete floor. It was three years ago and it has held up very well. I do not remember the name of product but I am sur they could help you.

Have your say...
