Top Three Epoxy Floor-Painting Tips 1. Remove everything from the area being coated. It's a pain in the butt, but clearing everything out of the garage is key to ending up with a high-quality epoxy-coated garage floor. We filled a 26-foot enclosed trailer with the contents of this garage for a total of four days to complete the floor.
2. Be Honest About The Condition Of The Concrete. If your concrete garage floor is seriously old and abused-like it shows signs of distress over the entire surface-coating it will only improve the appearance so much. Like painting a car with dented, rusty, and otherwise abused sheetmetal, the paint job is not going to look that great. If your concrete is bad, consider spending the money to replace it (as was done with this garage for a cost of about $2,000).
3. Use The Broom Handle To Extend The Roller Handle. You'll need to buy a new, clean broom to wash the concrete floor, so make the purchase worthwhile-screw the broom handle onto the paint-roller handle to make it easy to apply the epoxy paint.
