    Tips for painting concrete flooring in garage

    Painters & Decorators

    The concrete floor in my garage is painted. Is it safe to add an epoxy coating to this surface? If so, what steps should I take to apply this? How much should I apply? What equipment will I need and how about any safety tips and equipment that I’ll need to take into consideration?

    If it can’t be done, is there any other type of coating that can be added or something similar than be done to add more protective and preservative qualities to my garage floor? Thank in advance!

    I’m a bit stuck on this and would like to figure out so that the floor doesn’t wear down over time. Any help would be very helpful. Thanks for your time.

    "What is the floor painted in currently? If there are any lumps or bumps or flaking paint you might want to take a scraper over those areas or a light rub down then an epoxy coating would be very good or a durable floor paint. As for applying it, a large brush, 3"+ and a nice thick roller that you don't mind throwing out afterwards as it will never be the same even if you do clean it."

    "You can buy floor paint which gives a good solid finish. Make sure the floor is clean, dry and free of dust. Then apply with a roller and leave to dry overnight."

    "Epoxy is best,
    Wash and sand the floor to get rid of old paint.
    Then primer.
    Then epoxy, long-lasting and durable.
    Now use masonry sealer to finish off."

    "First need to check correctly the existing floor paint condition and good clean. If you see any pain crack or damaged, so need to remove and clean again and after that coat it with an epoxy coating."
