View Full Version : Going to epoxy my garage next week. Tips?

Anyone with experience doing this? I can get all the equipment at HomeDepot for about a bill (two car garage).
So far, I plan to:
Degrease and clean with detergent
Use a concrete etching compound
Anything I'm missing?

It's a broken record, but it's all about the prep: degrease degrease degrease. Then make sure you rinse well. Biggest mistake I see when folks do their driveways (lots of folks on the ocean front like to do fake pavers or faux tile) is they don't properly prep so even if they prime it flakes off after a few months. Clean then etch the hell out of it. DON'T FORGET THE RESPIRATOR! I don't care that the doors are open! :) You're messing with acid, folks, this is dangerous stuff. Oh, and it should go without saying to make sure your brakers are flipped to all the electrical outlets and any electrical below 4 feet in your working space.
