The recommended type of floor for garages is an epoxy/polyaspartic flake floor. While there are a variety of epoxy floors available, the flake floor provides the best results in terms of aesthetics, durability, and price. It stands up to all automotive fluids, mag chloride, and pretty much everything else you throw at it. You don’t have to worry about hot car tire lift, and we provide a lifetime warranty against lifting/peeling.
- Diamond grind the floor to prepare for coating. This makes the surface more porous and promotes a good bond with the epoxy base layer.
- Patch/repair cracks, holes, and any other surface damage.
- Caulk bottoms of control joints – these are the seams in your floor.
- Apply 100% solids epoxy and distribute decorative flakes to saturation.
- Let the epoxy and flakes cure overnight.
- Apply clear polyaspartic sealer.
- 24 hours later, your garage is ready to go.
After installing garage floors for almost 15 years, we’ve learned that epoxy is best for bonding to the concrete. Other fast curing materials can be used that allows a floor to be done in one day, but we’ve found through direct experience that epoxy is best for bonding to the concrete. The flakes add thickness and durability to the floor, as well as make it visually appealing. And the polyaspartic topcoat provides a very stain and abrasion resistant surface.
