Many people are now updating their garage floor with an epoxy coating. Epoxy is an excellent product, but the truley good epoxies should only be used by professionals. Every time I walk into a Home Depot or Lowes store I cringe when I see the epoxy kits for garage floors for a few reasons. These epoxies are at a do it yourself “strenght”. Many people that have put these down experience flaking with in a couple of years. Also a do it yourselfer doesn’t have access to a diamond floor grinder that would allow for proper prep of the concrete surface. An finally most of these “kits” don’t come with a clear top coat for added protection.
So if your going to do it yourself remember prep, prep, prep. If you can lick the floor it’s not clean enough. Also have a dry surface that doesn’t have a moisture issue, and as a general rule put the epoxy down when the ambient outside temperature is risining (starting at 50 degrees)
If you want to have a professional do it expect to pay around $3.50 to $4.50 per square foot.
