I am going to buy the garage floor epoxy kits from Menards or Home Depot.
However my garage has several cracks. What do I need to use to seal those
Do I need to take a dremel or something to groove them then fill the groove
with something to seal it then apply the epoxy? The garage is in two slabs
with a expansion joint or groove down themiddle. It is 1/2" wide and about
3/4" deep. I want to fill that also before applying the epoxy as it does
nothing but collect dirt and debris.
Any suggestions on what I need to use?
A flexible caulk.

The epoxies are like paint, they will not fill a crack. You can try
filling the crack and maybe the epoxy will stick to it, maybe not. You will
need to use a flexible calk because most hard calks will soon fall out.
these folk sell a filler just for this purpose. I am sure there are others
This has an interesting way to fill them with body filler!
The = missed in the link above?
Other hint was to use urethane caulk vs. silicone as the epoxy will not
stick to silicone
<< What do I need to use to seal those cracks? >>
Slop the epoxy right over and into them after cleaning per directions. Same
thing with the expansion joint. Then apply a good caulk, Bondo, whatever you
like and level it off. Take advantage of the epoxy adhesion and it can be the
base for all manner of good fillers. HTH
