Use Quality Concrete Crack Repair Products
Choosing a quality concrete crack repair product is absolutely essential to having the beautiful garage floor you desire.
Using the right concrete crack repair products are all part of the preparation proccess
If the cracks and dimples in your garage floor cement are not filled and finished off properly, you will not be happy with the finished product of your garage floor treatment.
There a couple of things to consider when choosing which concrete repair products to use for your garage floor repair.
1. width and depth of the crack, or chip that needs to be filled
2. is the concrete on both sides of the crack even, or is one side higher or lower than the other
3. Think about the finished texture of the crack repair product in comparison to the texture of your existing concrete garage floor.
All of these factors will have an impact on the beauty and longevity of your garage floor system.

For Larger Areas Needing Repair
I have found Quikrete to be an ever reliable source when it comes to concrete repair, and patching.
Actually Quickrete can fill the need for concrete crack repair products, as well as patching or filling holes.
If your cement garage floor is older and somewhat rough, Quickrete products will probably finish off with a texture closer to your existing concrete garage floor.
We are all familiar with the 60lb unmixed bags of cement, and mortar mix available from Quickrete, but they also offer convenient pre-mixed products as well.
Pre-mixed products come in such varieties as squeezable quart bottles and tubes, and also in 1 gallon pales.
