Garage Floor November 02nd, 2017 - 22:26:41
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.
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.

Yet they all have a few common characteristics -high resistance to chemicals, extremely durable, high bond strength low porosity, and other chemicals like oils or greases cant seep through them so easily. Irrespective of its characteristics, the paint has to be applied in a professional manner to get the surprising results. The better the floor operation, the better you can expect the results. The floor should be devoid of dust, dirt or debris. Unless the floor is absolutely clean, the paint will not deliver the expected results.
