After wanting an epoxied garage floor I finally broke down and had it done.
They started with a super heavy duty floor grinder to open all the pores and remove the old sealer. The grinder was connected to a huge industrial vacuum system.
They even ground the edge walls and the small entry way into the house by hand.
They then swept up the extra concrete particles and then blew the garage out with power blowers, followed by a wet mopping.
Then they mixed up some quick set concrete patch and fixed all the small pits and imperfections.
Next they mixed up the colored 2 part epoxy and hand bushed it on the edge walls and then threw the colored flake into it. Swept up the extra and then poured and rolled the floor while one man worked out front of the epoxy, the other wore special spiked shoes.
Then came the hand casted flakes. Of course Sharon did a great job matching the wall color with one of her favorite drinks “Cappuccino”. They used about 3 five gallon containers of the flakes.
Then they took a 45 minute lunch break to allow the epoxy to dry. When they came back they scraped the floor with a large scrapper that kind of looks like a flat snow shovel. Then then used the power blowers to collect up all the loose flakes and ended up picking up close to 4 gallons of flakes.
Then the final coat of a high gloss clear epoxy. It could be walked on after 4 hours, and driven on after a 24 hour cure time.
I could not be any happier with the end results. Even though I think it was all part of Miss Sharon’s master plan to get me to clean the garage! Ha!
I would and will highly recommend Garage Flooring Pros to do your garage floor!
Life is good and I am blessed!
