Unlike traditional garage floor paint which simply dries on the surface it is applied to, a garage floor epoxy coating undergoes a chemical reaction that results in a thick coating, tightly bonded to the prepared surface. One of the toughest and most durable finishes that you can apply to a garage floor today is an epoxy coating.
Not only does it protect your garage floor, it can instantly transform your boring or ugly cement into a professional looking floor of beauty and function. And since the garage is fast becoming more than just a place where you park the car, the benefits of garage floor epoxy have quickly made it one of the top choices.
No hot tire pick up! Hot tire pick up is a problem that is associated more with the lesser quality products. These are usually water based coatings. We only use quality commercial grade industrial products.
At Paint Inc, we will clean your garage floor, repair any areas needed and prepare it by grinding or acid etching. Floor preparation is critical for a successful coating. Quality epoxy jobs involve multiple coats to insure a very tough and resistant coating that will last for years.
Many times this will involve an epoxy primer or 50/50 epoxy/solvent which is applied first. The first coat will make sure the bonding is tight and that the finished product will look smooth.
The second coat is the color coat or base coat, you have a few options to choose from as far as color. This coat can either be a solid color finish or it can also receive the application of colored acrylic paint flakes. The final coat is the clear coat, a polyurethane top coat.
This is optional if your garage is exposed to the sun, epoxy will yellow or amber, as the industry calls it, when exposed to sunlight over a period of time.
Because of the curing time needed between epoxy coats, total time to complete the job and be able to park your car is approximately 3 to 5 days.
Whether you are turning your garage into a show piece for storage and cars or just want something to protect your garage for years to come, our work will last years and give you one of the best returns for the dollar.
