That should be a very nice finish.

I got the slab poured for my new cover a couple of weeks ago ...18x50 with a 4' aproach apron. The cover is scheduled for January 3. It will not be totally closed in ...partial sides with open ends. When I asked about sealer, my concrete guy said they don't seal any, but I "can do it if I want to." ...which I do, but I'm not sure what to use. A family member told me to get a BASF product from a concrete contractor supply place as he thought the stuff I could buy at Lowes etc just didn't measure up.

I am visiting family now and won't be able to get the sealer on until after the cover is erected. I want something resistent to staining.

So, what would you recommend I use? ...and why that product?

I thought about it, but it really isn't wide enough (12ft), and I removed the center post (reinforced the 6x8 beam w/ bolted angle iron) on the drivers side so I could extend the slide. My main reason other than sun exposure on the roof was the snow we get here. Without the roof, I'd have several feet of snow on it and we do use it in the winter. Removing snow from the roof in freezing weather 12 ft in the air is not for me. The slab makes under vehicle maintenance much nicer.

If not totally enclosed, you would need to use a densifier and sealer rated for exterior use.
Here is a good expanation LIQUI-HARD Concrete Densifier - W. R. Meadows or Concrete Densifier: Colloidal Silica Concrete Densifier - Xtreme Hard Densifier
My densifier product was applied immediately after final troweling.
I don't recall the brand of densifier product that was used on mine nor the sealer as it too came in barrels and transfered to managable containers for application. The sealer was applied and polished a couple of weeks later after roof was on and burnt/polished in with a large gas powered buffer with a scotch brite type of pad.

Got my motorhome berth completed this week. Found a local concrete contractor supply and got an outside rated acrylic sealer in a 5 gallon can, made by SCP. I used a roller and got two coats on the slab and had maybe an inch of liquid left in the bucket. It is great to have a covered parking area with nice concrete underfoot!!

A nice, clean look. No visible hinges or handles. Do you have any pics with the doors open?
