Question

Garage Flooring


Hi friends,

I am planning to resurface my garage floor. One of my friend suggest me that Rhino Floortex Coating is good for garage storage system. Have anyone of you heard of it? He also showed me a picture of it which is looking good. Have a look on it and please give me a suggestion about it? OR do you have any other options?
Thanks in advance!

When you say "you" are planning on resurfacing your floor, do you mean the company shown at the website?

Epoxy only. No paint. Prefer 100% solids epoxy. Size? Budget? DIY or pay out?

Check out Wolverine Coatings through Alpha Garage:

Also, check out the flooring forum on GarageJournal.

Also, the flake you show is laid down to the point of rejection (the epoxy physically can not handle any more sticking). Expensive.

I used the Rustoleum epoxy product several years ago. Easy to do. Has held up very well. Proper prep is king with any of the concrete flooring products.

It's definitely expensive for a DIYer to do it that way, because of the waste. (It's expensive to begin with because of the heavy saturation of flakes, but even more so because of the waste). A company that does a lot of floors, and has a number of predefined flake blends, and puts the leftovers back into their bin - not quite so expensive.

I do like the idea of the extra layer of polyurethane on top if you use that much flake though.

Overall I like the job they did in that video, with the possible exception that I'm not sure vacuuming completely removes the grinding dust residue. Power washing would do it, but that would slow down the process due to having to wait for drying.

If anyone's interested in my garage epoxy experience, here is the full thread here:

Here is what 27 lbs of flake coverage in a 28 x 48 area looks like:
