So Its time to begin the proper conversion of my garage into a better workplace for upcoming projects etc, I have studded, insulated and plasterboarded the walls and ceiling.

The floor however seems to be impervious to anything I throw at it, it generates a huge amount of dust and despite giving it 3 coats of b&q garage floor paint it just sucked it all up and still looked thirsty.

To be honest it doesn't even look like the builders finished it off properly when the house was built as there is not an inch of the floor which has even a semi finished texture to it.

Do I get a builder in to put a skim of concrete on it? Would that even work.

Your thoughts would be appreciated

"skim" won't work. Self levelling compound may be what you need.
