DIY Options for a Garage Floor

Self-apply epoxies and latex paints are the usual DIY options for garage coatings. While it is tempting to go for the cheap and easy options, you get what you pay for…

Self-apply epoxy coatings are readily available at a variety of stores and they claim to offer lasting protection and style. Yet, the manufacturers of these products cut many corners in an effort to make a profit. Not only that, if you do not know what you are doing, these epoxies are notoriously difficult to apply. Are you completely confident that you prepared the floor correctly before application, covered the floor with the solution entirely, and/or properly mixed it beforehand? It is probably best to leave this to the professionals.

Latex paint may offer simple style, color choice, and a quick and easy application, it cannot stand the test of time. Paint can be easily chipped or damaged by everyday wear-and-tear, not to mention the problem of peeling as it ages. Finally, paint offers practically no floor protection at all.

In short… DIY Options: Simple, It depends. Inexpensive, sure. A good investment, hardly.

Professional Application Options for a Garage Floor

Epoxy and polyurethane coatings are the current industry standards when it comes to top-of-the-line, professional floor protection.

Both polyurethane and epoxy offer unrivaled floor protection from chemicals and normal wear-and-tear. Both are stylish and can renew old floors with a glossy finish. However, epoxy can also be stained in a variety of different colors or even textured with patterns. With epoxy, you can personalize your garage and make it the envy of your neighbors, friends, and family.
