The garage flooring that we can install for you just might serve one purpose – a decent place to park your vehicle. Some people prefer a more decorative look to the concrete in their garage and want a “showroom finish” and some prefer nothing special and just want to patch the problem spots. This past week, we patched a big problem spot in a garage for a customer in Bryan, Ohio.
Our customer just wanted a repair on the center of his garage floor where the years of salt damage was taking its toll on the concrete surface. The pits were deep and ugly and we were up to the challenge of solving the problem. Since the customer only wanted the problem area in the center of the floor repaired, we first masked-off the area and fired-up the shot blaster to remove the top layer and prepare the surface for our first layer of epoxy. After the epoxy was put down, we threw sand (and lots of it) into it to help fill-in all of the holes (it looked like a big sand box when we left and we hoped that any neighborhood cats wouldn’t mistake it for the the world’s biggest litter box).
The next day, we used our spiral diamond grinder to grind down the sand on the epoxy and after cleaning the surface of sand residue, we put down another layer of epoxy with gray pigment. On the last and final day, we mixed-up some gray urethane and rolled it over the surface and threw a bit of clear aggregate into the surface for slip resistance. With industrial quality epoxy and urethane, this old garage floor had a bit of new life in it. Take a look and the pictures below and see for yourself!
