Epoxy Garage Floors

For many, a garage is more than just a place to store a car or multiple cars. Homeowners store lawn and garden equipment, bikes, storage containers, tools, and more. Many use it as a workshop to construct various home projects. A garage floor is often an overlooked surface, but having a durable garage floor that can withstand all this use—and looks good too—is possible with the right material.

At SUNDEK of San Antonio, we have been installing coatings on garage floors in both residences and commercial spaces for more than 30 years. We’d love to help make your garage floor durable and beautiful.

What is the best coating for a garage floor?

Epoxy or polyaspartic coatings can withstand a lot of wear and tear. They’re also non-porous, so it’s easy to wipe up spills—everything ranging from water to oil—and they resist damage from moisture. On top of all their functionality, they're also beautiful.

What's the difference between epoxy coatings and epoxy paint?

You've probably heard of epoxy paint and have possibly even seen it at your local hardware store. Sometimes the terms epoxy coating and epoxy paint are used interchangeably, but it's important to know that the two are very different.

If you're planning to epoxy your garage floor, it's good to know the differences. An epoxy coating creates a surface that's hard nad durable and resistant to things like chemical abrasion, oil and grease stains, and more. While concrete paint also protects the surface, it isn't as durable and can't withstand as much impact as a coating.

An epoxy coating contains a polyamine hardener and epoxy resin while epoxy paint is a latex acrylic product with has various amounts of epoxy added to it.

Can a damaged garage floor be resurfaced?

Yes! In addition to doing concrete resurfacing, we are experts in concrete repair. Here are some common garage floor problems:

  • Dusting: This happens when powder builds up on top of a hardened concrete slab, and it’s often caused by a large amount of traffic. The problem can also be caused by concrete that wasn’t mixed properly (when curing doesn’t happen the way it’s supposed to, it can lead to a soft concrete surface).
  • Spalling (also known as scaling): Spalling concrete is flaky and rough. Minor spalling causes cosmetic problems, while major spalling causes structural problems. If not addressed appropriately, slabs of concrete might separate from each other, creating a serious damage to your home or garage.
  • Cracking: Cracks range from minor, hairline fractures to wide and large problematic gaps. Cracks occur due to a variety of things, including the way the concrete was poured. For example, there could have been excess water in the concrete mix, it might have dried too rapidly, there could be lack of control joints when poured, and more.

SUNDEK of San Antonio can resolve all of these issues, plus more. We’ll also analyze the damage to determine how to prevent it from happening again.

Can I apply a coating to my garage floor myself?

While applying an epoxy or polyaspartic coating to your garage floor can be done as a DIY project, it's not one to be taken lightly. If you plan to take on the project yourself, you'll need to do thorough research into the process and carefully read the labels of the product you choose. Resurfacing a garage floor requires meticulous attention to detail.

Before applying a coating, your surface needs to be thoroughly cleaned. This can be achieved through power washing and using an abrasive material to remove any contaminants such as oil, grease, and dirt. If the surface is not prepared properly, the coating will not adhere well and the quality of your surface will be compromised.

We recommend hiring a professional contractor to apply your coating. Their experience means they know the common pitfalls to avoid, what conditions should be like to install coatings, and more. A contractor such as SUNDEK of San Antonio can come look at your garage, discuss your options, and give you a free estimate.

Maintaining a garage floor

Having an epoxy or polyaspartic coating makes your garage floor simple and straightforward to clean. Since the surface is non-porous, it’s easy to wipe up spills. General maintenance includes sweeping or hosing the surface off every few weeks to keep it free of dirt and other debris. Your installer will fill you in on exactly how to care for your floor, but you can also learn more about maintaining a SUNDEK surface here.
