Garage Floor Coating

A garage is a place that people tend to forget about. And that's understandable – most homeowners don't visit this part of their homes frequently as they use their garages only for vehicle storage. But it isn't the only purpose a garage has. In fact, garages can be whatever you'd like them to be – a workshop, a warehouse, and even a gathering place. No matter how you use your garage, you should take proper care of it.

Garage floor coating is one of the best options when it comes to home improvement as it has many significant benefits. An epoxy coating will protect your floor paint from lifting and peeling. It is also resistant to impact and damage, which is a huge perk because the garage is usually home to chemicals and heavy tools.

If you have cracks in your concrete garage floor, the coating is a perfect way to repair them and enhance the look of your garage.

A garage is often the dirtiest part of the house, and epoxy floors can save you from the struggle of cleaning it all up. If your garage floor is slippery, the coating can fix this problem and protect you and your family from injuries.

Epoxy Garage Floor Coating Types

Whether you're looking for durability or decorativeness, there are many types of garage floor coatings available. The most popular coating material among them is epoxy. From moisture management to aesthetic solutions, epoxy coating is an affordable and easy-to-maintain solution.

Epoxy coatings are applied onto concrete floors and usually come in three types – water-based, solvent-based, and solid epoxy.

  1. Water-Based Epoxy

    Water-based epoxy contains water, epoxy, and hardener. As the epoxy hardens, the water evaporates. This type of epoxy is durable, glossy, non-toxic, and easy to apply.

    However, water-based epoxy is prone to spot rusting and needs to be recoated more often than other types.
  2. Solvent-Based Epoxy

    Solvent-based epoxy is more durable than a water-based one. This type of epoxy can be applied in low temperatures and dries relatively quickly. On the other hand, it's more toxic and flammable than other types.
  3. Solid Epoxy

    Solid epoxy coating, in its turn, can last up to 20 years and is environmentally safe, but it can't be used on floors with moisture problems.

One-car garage floor epoxy coatings cost $1320 on average. One of the many factors that determine the installation cost is the price of the epoxy itself. Water-based epoxies are the cheapest – they cost between $30 and $50 per gallon. Solid epoxy is more expensive at $98 per gallon. Solvent-based epoxy is somewhere in the middle, with an average price of $45 per gallon. Labor usually costs $2 to $5 per square foot. The job takes at least two days to complete because of the drying time and the necessary preparation.

Garage Floor Coatings Near Me

Sometimes the process of looking for a professional to coat your garage floor can be frustrating – especially if you aren't sure what coating you want. Therefore, you need to know some tips to make your search easier.

You should start the process by doing your research on the topic. Look up different types of coatings and decide on the most suitable one for your home.

Then, check the contractors' licenses, insurance, and reputation. Also, you should ask the company for feedback on the work of the contractors.

If you are thinking about installing the garage floor coating yourself, you should know that DIY coatings last up to five years, while professional floor coatings usually have a twenty-year lifespan.

Homeowners typically don't have the equipment to do a mechanical etch before coating the floor with epoxy, so they rely on a chemical etch, and it is not enough to create a strong bond between the concrete floor and the coating. As a result, the coating lasts less. Therefore, it's essential to hire a professional that has the required skills and knowledge for the job.
