Garage Floor Coating
Did you know that just about every garage floor is different? Some concrete slabs are super hard, others are super soft. Creating a beautiful garage floor coating using epoxy always starts with accurate slab analysis and preparation.
The correct way to prepare your concrete slab
The quality of the surface preparation will determine the quality of the final floor.
We start by diamond grinding the existing slab. The hardness of your concrete will determine which diamond-type we need to use to prepare the slab. We’ve found that older slabs are generally the better ones to work with, as newer slabs are often porous.
If your slab is porous, we will also prime it to reduce moisture penetration.
It’s not the sexiest part of the process, but crucial to get right before moving on to the fun part.
Which finish would you like for your garage floor coating?
Once the floor is perfectly prepared with a smooth surface, it’s time for the fun part – laying your beautiful new garage floor coating.
There is a huge range of garage floor finishes available including one colour, blended colours, flake finishes, decorative metallic, and even a finish with some of your favourite memorabilia embedded.
Epoxy finish options
Flake floor finish
The flake finish is the most popular of all when it comes to garage epoxy floors. It is the most robust, and the most cost effective of professional coatings. The flake covers all the floor and there are plenty of options to choose from. See our ‘Garage blend’ range.
Metallic floor finish
A metallic finish gives the floor a depth of colour which looks almost 3-dimensional. The smooth, glass like finish has a unique and subtle reflective sparkle. We can apply any creative technique you can think of to ensure you have a unique design.
Slip-resistant gloss finish
Most of our resin products come standard as high gloss. As with anything glossy, the finish can be slippery, particularly when wet. On the final coat (mostly), we add a slip resistant product to keep you and your family safe from injury caused by slips and falls.
Garage floors are the most popular area of all for epoxy finishes. People often like to put their stamp on it so they have a totally unique finish. Designs include ‘glow in the dark’ options, zany colour combos, and decals and memorabilia emblazoned into the floor.
