Specialist in epoxy coatings Doug Fasching joins the popular This Old House YouTube channel to explain how you can lay down an epoxy-based coating for your garage floor.
First, scrub the floor with a degreaser. In the next step, you will need be wearing protective gear to apply an acid. Make use of a watering container that is designed as a mixer to mix the acid and water. An acid-resistant metal watering container is not suitable because acid is likely to react with it. Utilize a mop to clean all the acid off of the floor. Then rinse it with clean water. Particles are still left on the floor surface, so the floor needs vacuuming.
When your floor has dried, it’s prime to be coated with epoxy. It’s two components that must be blended. Let it sit for about 30 minutes. The epoxy is now ready to use. The mixing can be limited to the contents of one bottle at a time since epoxy can be expected to be dried in just 2 1/2 hours. Apply the epoxy like paint. Two coats are required. The first coat should dry overnight before applying the second coat.
