Coating a concrete garage floor is an inexpensive way to transform a stained surface into a value-added extension of the home. Epoxy floor coatings are a popular way to hide stains and imperfections while also creating a strong, stain-resistant surface. Some products can be professionally installed while others are packaged for the do-it-yourselfer.
With an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, Custom Concrete Design boasts a product that is 100%-solids cycloaliphatic epoxy. Suitable as a coating for garages, patios, driveways, basements, pool decks and even industrial concrete or wood floors, this product dries and leaves a coating made entirely of solid materials. The percentage of solids left after an epoxy product has dried is a measurement that allows products from different manufacturers to be compared.
According to, Custom Concrete Design, “If you want the highest grade of 100% solids epoxy, you will want a cycloaliphatic epoxy.” Cycloaliphatic epoxy offers high abrasion resistance, won’t fade or yellow, has no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and emits no odor after it dries.
Garage Floor Coating claims its product emits no VOCs. Requiring professional installers, this product is applied over a two to three-day time period. The finishes can be a solid color or flecked, also called “chipped.”
Depending on the product, there are many color and design choices available. A Base Epoxy Color is added to the Garage Floor First then we can add flakes to the mixture. More flakes in the mix will create a solid color, while fewer flakes result in a flecked design. High-Epoxy gloss is spread on after the Flakes have had 24hrs to settle and get locked into the base coat. Then the Clear High Gloss Epoxy Finish is Applied, then we apply 4 coats of wax to help protect the Epoxy Coat, it really gives everything a nice High Gloss Shine!!
Concrete garage floor coatings will resist tire skid marks, and a quality epoxy will not be damaged when it comes into contact with hot tires. Additionally, an epoxy coating will not be harmed by the oil and chemical drips often occurring in garages.
For home and business owners who want to upgrade the appearance of their garage or make it more resistant to stains, chips and cracks, a concrete garage floor coating offers all of those advantages.
