Help with Basement Floor Paint
I'm getting ready to paint the basement floor this weekend and I am totally confused as to the proper paint to use. To begin with the floor has been previously painted (looks like just 1 coat). There was a few small areas where white powdery stuff had poked through the peeling paint, so I scaped all peeling paint and washed the entire floor with TSP. Visits to 2 different paint stores yielded the following advice: (paint store #1): use an oil based epoxy primer and paint, (paint store #2)use an oil primer/latex floor paint combo.
Sherwin Williams store: latex based acrylic primer and latex acrylic floor paint.
Emptying the basement to paint was a huge task and I want to do this right the first time and i want it to last.
Any thoughts would be very welcomed. Thanks.
