Garage Floor Paint/Epoxy


I redid my basement and garage with Epoxy. I definitely made some mistakes, but in the end, I'm pretty happy with the job. I've documented what I did right and wrong with some accompanying pictures at http://www.goodrum.cx/fall2007projects if you're interested. I think you'll appreciate my spiked shoes for walking across drying epoxy flooring.

Garage Floor Paint/Epoxy


Nice job, my basement floor is a mess
No plans to do that, its too sectioned up
But I want to do the garage before we start using it
I figure a nice clean fresh floor is best

Are these finishes slippery?
With snow melt in the winter I don't want the wife taking a header
She can trip over an ant, really

I was expecting a bigger pergola !!

With the flakes, it's not slippery at all. They do have an additive for clear epoxies to create a "Grit" feeling to them if you're not using flakes.

the additive's call'd ' shark's grip ' ( ground polycarbonate ) [ sher-wms ],,, apron stores sell crush'd & grad'd garnet,,, sand breaks down,,, the best stuff's alum oxide but too much & you'll change the color.

i always use it in the 1st coat of urethane over epoxy then backroll in the 2nd coat of urethane.
