Re: Epoxy floors & U-Coat-it

I used a S/W Industrial 2 part epoxy on my garage. My floor was new and prepared correctly. However, I had a some very small areas of lifting only where the tires stopped 100% of the time. My bigger problem was the area you drove over stained darker over time.

I add RaceDeck in strips where I drive and I am happy with the combination of the two.

oh I also did that little 1" ledge leading up to the garage, it looks so much better when you tape that ledge off and epoxy it, it actually give off the look that the whole floor is made from that stuff.

This is all I have. I have since added RaceDeck to this side to match the other.

Re: Epoxy floors & U-Coat-it

Home depot has a new garage floor finishing service that I saw advertised just the other day (but I couldn't find on their web site- although they are selling some nice garage floor mats). As I remember there were 2 or three options and they had a display showing the thickness and finish of each. I don't remember that exact pricing but I think the cheapest finish was like 500. I remember thinking it looked like a great idea and I am going to look further into it.

Re: Epoxy floors & U-Coat-it

Why doesn't anyone do it in a ceramic tile???I can see if you did major repair work.But for the normal use it works great.And it cost less then the race deck.

My buddy did the ceramic tile route and it came out great. It looks a lot better and probably last a lot longer than the epoxy, which is what i have in my house. I also have the same problem as Anthony mentioned, about the tire marks. Keep having to clean it all the time

I have a friend with a flooring business. That was my original plan, too. However, there really isn't any good grout out there which can hold up to the garage environment over any reasonable period of time (particularly when you consider the cost). However, he told me about a few very tough varieties of asphalt tile which he assures me will not stain, peel, get slippery, absorb anything, or be affected by hot tires. Apparently it's made for a harsh garage-type environment. Supposed to be pretty cheap, too.

Since I'm still about 7 months away from completion I didn't follow up, but I'll try to remember to give him a ring and see if I can get details.

Re: Epoxy floors & U-Coat-it

why don't you score, stain and seal the floor? it costs less than tile and looks better. plus no grout.

Re: Epoxy floors & U-Coat-it

i used the epoxy floor coat in my garage it is awesome it does howver chip if you are sliding something like a floor jack across it other than that the stuff is awesome even on 114 degree days with 80% humidity nothing sticks to the tires. for prep everything does have to be really clean though it took me about 2 hrs to rinse off the soap that comes in the kit. for an oversized three car garage the rustoleum cost about 200 to 250.
