I am thinking of having my garage floor coated by either a Rustoleum product
(installed by Home Depot) or by Premier Garage - I can not figure out if the
material is any different.
Both companies offer similar descriptions including preparation of grinding
Anybody have any reason other than price to pick between them or experience
with doing this in the first place?
Never accept anything for your garage floor except a two part epoxy
system. Acid etching is used for fairly new concrete, serious grime
cutting chemicals for older floors. Solvent based epoxy systems are
more durable, water based OK for typical light traffic residential
garage floors. The epoxy formulations are well proven in most cases.
Sherwin-Williams has a good one, many others are in the market. Prep
and painting are somewhat labor intensive and if the floor is in
decent shape no grinding is needed unless some drainage problems must
be corrected. Off hand, my gut feeling is that this may be an attempt
to extract more profit from a simple paint job than is warranted by
they melt wear fast and peel.
never accept anything but bare concrete for a garage floor till its
time to sell then make it pretty..........
and laugh the next owner will be endlessely trying to keep it
but you will be long gone with your money:)
This one is pretty pretty anyway, c. 1936. With drain, you don't see
that much anymore.
I guess none of the previous owners had cars that leaked either, the
driveway and garage are both stain free.
If I were going to go nuts I'd put in a floating plywood floor and
linoleum that... if linoleum may be used as a verb. Classic
checkerboard pattern. Maybe put some of those rubber bumpers like
gymnasium floors have on the bottom.
If I got tired of it I'd zip it up with a circular saw.
