Garage Epoxy Painting Considerations
No matter what type of epoxy paint you choose to use for your garage floor, there are other considerations that need to be taken into account. For starters, your garage floor requires proper preparation before painting can begin.
Preparation includes thoroughly cleaning the garage floor, as concrete tends to absorb contaminants that can be a barrier to the bonding of the paint to the concrete. Depending on the epoxy paint manufacturer you choose, there may be additional preparation steps needed. For example, if your garage floor already has a finish you may need to remove that prior to painting. You may also want to consider using epoxy paint primer. Applying paint primer before applying the epoxy coat provides extra protection that will help the paint last.
