Epoxy cement paint on new floor


Looking at putting an EPOXY cement paint down in the new garage. It was pored just this fall and we have not started using it yet due to further construction with the house. do I still need to erch the cement or can I just clean and pressure wash the cement and let dry, then apply paint.

Any brands to stay away from or that you have had good experience with.

I would recommend taping down a 3x3 foot piece of 6mil poly on the floor. After a few days check it for any moisture under the poly. If there are any moisture issues, you surely don't want to use an epoxy. The vapor pressure will lift it. After that follow the recommendations of the paint manufacturer. Some will like an etched finish on the concrete. All depends on the manufacturer.

Epoxy cement paint on new floor


Wondering if anyone knows the answer to this I just did my garage floor this weekend with the epoxy and the paint chips. I went heavy on the chips to make it look like granite, however I did not go heavy enough in some spots. The reason is that I used a base coat spoxy that needed to be tinted, but the guy in lowes said you can use it as is, to make it a cream color backround. However you can see some older stains through it in the concrete. I was just wondering can I actually go over the epoxy with more clear epoxy and ADD more chips.. It has only been 3 days. Will it bond to the current epoxy???

You may need to scuff the surface to make it bond. Best is to read the can and see if there is a recoat procedure, or contact the manufacturer and ask them. Most epoxies can be recoated with some prep.
