Garage Floor Coatings

Epoxy Garage Floor Coatings. What can I do to make my garage floor look better?  I get asked very often what can I do to my garage floor it looks horrible.  Usually, when I’m asked this, the husband is asking for a better solution in his garage.

Store Bought Epoxy Coatings

You have many options and prices available. You can start at the lower end of the quality scale.  For example, Just walk into any home improvement store yourself.  You can buy a concrete porch and floor enamel coating system.  It’s going to do a nice job for you.  Look great.  But eventually, it will start to fail within the first couple years.

Paint Store 2-Part Epoxy Systems

Then you can move up to the two-part epoxy that you can buy at your local paint store.  This requires a little bit more work prepping, cleaning, and painting.  And it requires a lot more labor.  The material cost is more expensive, 3 – 4 times the cost of your basic floor enamel.  This definitely holds up longer, especially if the prep work done to the floor is been done properly.

Professional Epoxy or Polyaspartic Coatings

The third application would be the multiple application.  This coating is applied by a professional contractor.  Generally, you have two choices here:  epoxy or a polyaspartic coating. This is a much more expensive coating than your basic epoxies.  Honestly, I highly recommend having the garage floor applied by a professional.  A professional brings the experience and the absolute finest equipment to do this type of project.

Epoxy Garage Floor Coatings:  Mark’s Advice

I would not consider doing this on your own.  I’ve recommended this to many of my clients who are looking to have a showroom finish floor in their garage. I find that most men like to spend their time out in the garage.  A good way to freshen up your garage floor look is by having a garage floor coating sprayed by a professional.  This is definitely for the guys that like to knock around in their garage.
