Half Finished Garage Floor

Hello,

I have a 24'x24' garage floor that was only half finished after it was put down. When I bought the house it had some junk from the previous owner left in the garage so I didn't get to see the whole floor. Half of the floor was finished and the other half looks like they just quit half way through. You can see aggregate rocks and there is a bump from where the cement was pulled by a 2x4 then left to dry, it also has low spots. So to my question is there any inexpensive fix to finish concrete after it has dried. Thanks for any help or ideas.

I don't know about inexpensive...that's a relative term. However, here are the options as I see them.
1) Hire a company who does concrete grinding and polishing. They grind the whole floor with progressively finer discs which ultimately result in a very smooth, shiny floor. Depending on how much surface they take off, your garage floor could end up looking like terrazzo.
2) Apply a resurfacer to the concrete after it has been thoroughly cleaned and prepped to the manufacturer's specifications. This is better left to a pro as well, but is do-able by a homeowner with rented equipment.
3) Have the bad side torn out and replaced.
4) Pile a bunch of YOUR junk on top of it to hide it from view. This last one is the least expensive option. Good luck.

Thanks

Thank you for your suggestions. I'll have to look into how much I can budget for this before starting.

i join my colleague in recommending # 4 as the easiest method Beer 4U2 you can rent a walk-behind dual-disk grinder & make improvements inexpensively ( rental's $ 300 day here ).
