DIY Epoxy Floor Coating Installation

Are you tired of looking at oil stains on the floor when you walk into your garage? Do you want to feel like you’re driving into a showroom every time you come home? All you need is a weekend and a little elbow grease to get your garage floor looking great.

An Epoxy floor coating can be applied to any concrete floor area, giving you a hard, resilient surface that is resistant to scratches, scuffs, cracks and other damage. Additionally, Epoxy comes in numerous colors and textures so you can match you house décor.

To successfully install an Epoxy floor, you need to follow certain steps to prep, install and cure the floor properly.

Begin by picking the color and texture that you want to put on your floor and purchase the necessary supplies. GarageCoatings.com offers its Roll on Rock® and Lava Flow® garage floor coating kits to transform unsealed concrete into attractive, tough-as-nails flooring in just one day. These kits feature an exclusive, easy-to-install Direct to Concrete Epoxy system that is more than three times as strong as standard off-the-shelf Epoxy flooring, making it extra durable and long lasting. You can also get the Epoxy Floor Applicator Pack with all the brushes, rollers, and mixing and measuring tools that you’ll need to get the job done quickly and easily.

Now you need to pick a day that you can dedicate to transforming your garage floor. Make sure to follow all the recommended steps for preparing the concrete floor. Be sure to read all the instructions included with the Epoxy Flooring kit before beginning.

Now you’re ready to begin the quick and simple process to making your garage floors look like a showroom and a place you’ll be proud to have as part of your home.

First, apply the Direct to Concrete Epoxy primer to the entire surface of the exposed concrete. This primer uses an advanced wicking system to get deeper, stronger adhesion than other primers on the market. It can stick to new and existing concrete floors with minimal odor. For new or “green concrete” we recommend waiting at least 28 days before applying the epoxy coating.

Once the primer is in place, you can broadcast the flake by throwing it onto the wet Epoxy flooring until the floor is completely covered. Then you scrape off the loose flakes and are left with a uniform floor, delivering a beautiful Epoxy floor coating.

To apply the Lava Flow® metallic Epoxy, wait until the primer is fully cured and apply one coat of epoxy with the metallic powder. This gives the floor a smooth, glassy finish with color shifts and a subtle metallic sparkle.

Once the Roll on Rock® or Lava Flow® have fully dried, apply a Polyurea topcoat for added scuff-resistance and gloss. The water-clear, high-gloss and high-build film of the Polyurea provides a beautiful topcoat finish that is extremely scratch resistant and will look great for years. The Polyurea is designed to dry fast. In most cases, you can return the items to your garage several hours after the topcoat has been applied and the car can be parked on it in a day or two.
