Got a Question?   Ask Joe
Joe, I finally talked my husband into painting our patio floor. Were trying to choose between Olympic rescue it (Lowe's) and Rust-oleum Deck and concrete restore (Home Depot) and would like your opinion.

Rust-Oleum deck & concrete restore vs Olympic Rescue it

Ask Joe Pullaro

Olympic   /   Rust-Oleum   /   PPG

While I have not used either product, my research shows that both Olympic Rescue and Rust-oleum deck and concrete restore, will work great on your Patio as long as all manufactory instructions are followed and the concrete has a brushed finish. Neither are designed for use on garage floors, driveways or any other areas with vehicular traffic.
