Garage Floor November 02nd, 2017 - 22:16:10
Epoxy floor paint is used to seal porous cement floors from mold and cracking damage caused by garage spills and ground moisture. It is a must for long-term durability. Used alone it will improve the appearance of your floor, and make cleaning up fast, but painted cement is a hard and slippery surface ill-suited for standing and walking upon. A non-professional can apply epoxy paint, which costs from $2.50-$5 a square foot, but the preparation, mixing and painting is time consuming and difficult. Applied by a professional, the labor costs from $5-$15 and hour on top of supplies. Using additional coverings over a sealed floor will lengthen its life even more.
For example, if your garage is 24 x 20, then you simply take 24 x 20 and determine that your garage is 480 square feet. If you were going to purchase rolled garage floors then your best option would be to choose a roll that is 10 feet wide and purchase the length you need for each 10 foot increment. In our example 2 rolls of garage flooring that is 10 feet wide by 24 feet long would be perfect. But what if you garage is 24 x 22? If that is the case the best option would be to purchase rolled garage flooring that is 7.5 wide and then buy 3 rolls at 24 long.

Almost everyone that lives in a house has a garage. But not everyone cares about their garage. And lets be honest, most of the garages dont look too well. Some people really dont care because they think that the garage is only for storage or for the car and that no one can see how the garage looks. However, I am sure that people who spend a lot of time in their garage, usually end up spending a lot of time working on their vehicle, and they do care a lot about how their garage looks.
