Let’s Talk About Your Garage Floor

Garage CabonetsYou can have the neatest most organized garage on the block, but if the floor is covered with oil spots and grimy messes it will always seem dirty.  Keeping the garage floor clean and stain free is an important step in having the garage of your dreams.  There are many different flooring choices that will make keeping your garage floor in top shape as easy as can be!   One of the quickest and easiest ways to improve the look of your garage floor is by giving it a few coats of paint.  Painting the floor is a good DIY project but you must be sure to prep it properly beforehand.  Here are some different types of paint that you can choose from to use on your garage floor:

  • Latex – This type of paint is the cheapest option.  Durability can be a problem with latex paint if you’re going to be parking your car on it.  This option is a good choice if your garage is mainly used for things other than parking your car.  Latex paint comes in many different colors and finishes, so coordinating it to your style is no trouble at all.
  • Nice Epoxy1 Part Epoxy – This is standard acrylic paint with epoxy mixed in it, so it’s more durable than plain acrylic paint.  You can use this in a garage where you park your car because it resists peeling and stains.  This choice also makes a good DIY project for most people.
  • 2 Part Epoxy – 2 part epoxy for floors comes in a kit for DIY’ers.  It isn’t the same thing as the commercial grade epoxy coating that the professionals use and it will not give you the same durability that commercial grade epoxy will.  In order to get good results you must be very careful to follow the instructions included with the kit.
  • Professional EpoxyCommercial Grade Epoxy – This flooring option should be applied by a professional.  Commercial grade epoxy is a great choice for a durable floor that is easy to clean and also beautiful to look at.  You can choose a solid color or have PVA chips added in for a splash of color.  This is an excellent choice for any garage.
