Garage floor paint in the epoxy form is one of the best to apply lasting upward of 20 years! Floors will need to be cleaned before starting your job, epoxy floor paint can go over existing paints so long as you clean and sand the existing layer so the new paint will adhere to it, use a degreaser over oil stains. Preparation is the main key to a good job so don’t skimp on the prep work. Making your garage vacant and putting your car outside, under your carport canopy or metal carports will make your work faster.

Once thorough cleaning is complete it’s time to mix your epoxy and cover your floor. Follow your manufacturers instruction well, most will supply brushes, squeegees and whatever else you need in the kit. The floor covering on its own is slippery when wet or when oil is on it, to combat that there are small flake chips that you can throw on top of the epoxy that will make it more slip resistant. These are available in many colors, using 2 or 3 colors can produce a marble finish effect.

This is a project that is easy, but does require some muscle power for cleaning and preparation work. It’s not an expensive project; costs will vary with the size of your garage. You will save the most by doing it yourself as opposed to paying a contractor. The reward is a new garage floor that is almost maintenance free that will last for years and look new each and every time you open the door.
