“Epoxy coating is one of the toughest and most durable surfaces to have on a garage floor,” said Austin Brooks, a paint sales expert with Jones Paint & Glass.
However, without proper preparation of the surface and application of the epoxy, a do-it-yourself garage floor coating may fail. A bright, clean epoxy finish can be applied to virtually any garage floor by following several basic steps:
- Clean the floor.
- Etch the floor using muriatic acid.
- Neutralize the floor and remove the acid.
- Rinse and dry the floor.
- Apply the first coat of epoxy.
- After it dries, which may take up to 24 hours, apply the second coat of epoxy.
- Let the final coat dry for an additional 24 hours.
“It’s easy to clean, looks great and increases the value of your home,” Brooks said.
