When it comes to garage flooring, many of you may have heard or seen the epoxy floor coverings that are available today, possibly even on TV. You see what looks like a simple process and beautiful results. What you dont see or hear is that most epoxy floor coverings fail and the process is extremely time consuming and difficult. The biggest reason the epoxy garage floors fail is adhesion, they simply dont stick well unless the surface has been properly prepped. That doesnt sound bad, right? Wrong. Here are some of the things you need to do to "prep" for an epoxy floor:
A lot of choice is now available for covering the floor of the garage. The mats protect the floor and decorate the garage in a unique way. These garage floor mats are just laid on the floor. Therefore, they can be removed, dusted and washed, whenever needed. The polyvinyl mats provide high quality protection to the garage flooring. These are waterproof and they prevent spillage on the floor from the stored items. They are durable and long lasting, therefore cost effective as well.
Calculating the right amount of a rubber garage floor can be a difficult task but one that is extremely important if you are planning on this impressive home improvement project. You dont want to buy too much and waste your money but you also dont want to buy too little and end up short on the job. The right calculations are important. If you are not comfortable determining how much you need, ask for help. The better retailers will be more than willing to help you order the perfect amount.
You can now begin to apply your new garage floor paint once you have properly cleaned your flooring. You may have to mix some coating solutions together depending on the paint or coat you choose to apply to your garage flooring. Once the mix is ready, apply the paint or coat thoroughly onto your floor with a small bristle shop brush or floor painting type brush. If you want to, you can even add paint chips to your coat or paint for a more unique and outgoing paint job. You just sprinkle the chips around the floor or in the locations you want them. Once you do this, repeat the paint or coat application to make sure your floor is completely covered.
