Photo 160 I finished applying my Epoxy-Coat this weekend. I am very happy with the results and the product is a true hi gloss epoxy. Not the crud sold at most home improvement stores. This is bringing my garage project close to the end. I insulated it, added electric and a nice forced air furnace. Once drywall and painting was done I applied the floor. I just have some wall base and cabinets to install and paint touch up.

Etching was the worst part, not hard just took time and longer than I thought it would for the floor to dry. This was in part to water getting into shrinkage cracks down in the crack lines and around the footing wall and floor. I called Epoxy-Coat and asked them what to seal the cracks with before applying the floor. I used a Hi grade paintable caulk as they said to do. I did the same to the wood steps into the house.

I did have one boo boo at the beginning. I wanted to paint the footing wall around the perimeter and not have color chips on that part. I mixed a small amount in a mixing cup and started rolling it with a 2 inch roller. About 20 minutes into the application the container started getting warm in my hand and BLAM the stuff went off in seconds. (Yep true epoxy) I only lost a small amount, but I changed my application method by mixing a small amount and pouring it on the top of the footing wall and getting it out of the container as the instructions say to do.

The rest went very well. I applied Tan color epoxy with beige blend flakes as per the instructions and the DVD disc was a big help. I did buy the spiked shoes. I don’t see how you could apply this product without them? You can’t even tell you have walked in the wet epoxy with them on. Just don’t walk on anything soft or you will have holes. The clear was easy but I had a little trouble with air bubbles. The blower method worked for making them pop.

I did buy additional rollers and some extra cut in brushes since once this stuff cures there is no way it will be cleaned out of anything. Lacquer thinner works well for cleanup of wet product. I attached a few photos. (Didn’t take any before ones)

Thanks Epoxy Coat for a very nice product and kit.

My wife and I completed the garage and our shop this past weekend. Here are photos I took of the garage. We used a coffee can with a plastic lid to disperse the Flakes. Drilled 3/8 holes in the lid, worked very well.

The flake colors in the garage:
1. Black Metallic
2. Neon Blue
3. Neon Yellow

Everyone at Epoxy-Coat.com has been very professional and very helpful to all my questions. Your product seems to be very durable. Looks neat under black light! The only think I hated to do was the floor grinding, but I think it will give us a longer lasting floor. I researched all the different brands and even though there are less expensive systems out there, I truly believe you get what you pay for and this systems is definitely a better quality than the other systems that I have seen.

This is our first time laying an epoxy floor!

Thanks again and best regards,

Just wanted to share a few photos... before and after epoxy-coat.

I recently purchased a home with a guest cottage, both in need of some improvements, but the cottage was quite seriously neglected, including the floors... Thanks to epoxy-coat the transformation is complete.

Hello Jenny,

Just a note from a very proud "garage owner". I contacted you while trying to figure out what my best way to go was with my pitiful garage. Your contractor, Gary Bennett, of G B Interiors, came and showed me why Epoxy-Coat was my best choice. I am SO GLAD!! As a Realtor in South Florida, I see many "bargain" garage paint jobs that are flaking and peeling. Your product is guaranteed for life and now that I have it, I see why. Gary did a marvelous job and I thank you for this beautiful product! Please see my attached photos.

Sincerest regards,

Carla Connor, Realtor

The garage is 30' x 40', and I was wondering how much over my head I may have gotten when I decided to coat the new floor. I prepped the floor with the enclosed acid wash liquid.

Then, 24 hours later, my oldest friend and I read the instructions, watched the video, and started. We were really surprised and relieved by how easy this all actually went on. We did 3 Full Kits of the beige, with the Sunset yellow, Canyon Red and Autumn Brown flakes. We then waited the 16 hours and applied the 3 Full Kits of Clear. The floor is amazing and just what I was looking for. The kits themselves were so complete; we only needed to have the handles for the squeegee and rollers. I couldn’t ask for a better prepped kit.

Please see the attached photos. The before photos were taken after the acid wash. The finished photos were taken 24 hours after the clear coat was applied. Now I will be ordering kits for the old garage once I have it cleared out. Thank you to all the folks at Epoxy-Coat.

I used the gray basecoat floor with black, white, blue chips. Filled in the expansion joints with concrete caulk for a smooth finish, then had a couple buddies help me coat my three car garage and shop totaling 883 square feet. Set an egg timer for stir, pour, and flake steps to ensure timeliness. The paint chips prevent slipperiness, but still allow an easy sweep clean. Applying gray wall molding at the wall-floor junctures really made the whole job snap and look professionally-finished. One buddy who helped previously used a water-based epoxy on his garage and stated he would have preferred Epoxy Coat. One thing, though- the sun was setting on the doorways as we were completing the job and beware as it sets up even quicker than you think. The even coloration makes my garage look bigger than it really is. I LOVE MY GARAGE AND SHOP FLOORS and smile every time I go out there. I will definitely recommend to all. Thx for an outstanding product.

Jamie,

I am finally finished with the other part of my garage. It's the area that holds the ATV"s and leads from the main garage to the house. I took the theme of a road. The yellow lines actually have your glow in the dark chips so at night the road lines glow. The attached pictures show the before and after. The before photos show the tape layout.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Just wanted to tell you I finished a super great job with your products. This was NOT your typical job. I did my KITCHEN floor. Ok listen, I took a chance on this and it worked great. My kitchen floor was "peel and stick" vinyl tile; some had to be nailed down thanks to my yorkiee puppy BENJI who was paper trained in the kitchen. I first sanded the tile with 40 grit on an orbital sander, tack clothed the floor, used half kit of epoxy coating basecoat tan with brown flake, after one week I sanded again and applied half kit epoxy-coat clear...it looks great...I have before and after photos if you want. Your epoxy coating is a great choice instead of buying sheet vinyl flooring pasted down from a big box store....thanks!

Jamie,

I purchased your product and installed it 4 years ago in my new 4 car garage/workshop. It went on fairly easy, with some planning, and it looks GREAT!! The slab temperature was barely 60 when I installed it, and I have had no peeling, chipping, hot tire issues etc. In fact after dragging floor jacks around, dropping all kinds of tools, showers of welding and grinding sparks, fluid spills of all types, NOTHING has hurt this floor. You have an excellent product! I could not find a good picture of the blue floor color when initially searching for color choices, so I included a before and after shot for your website and future customers. My only advice for your Do-it-yourself crowd would be to get a good metal paint mixer for mixing the coating, and buy some spiked golf shoes for installing the flakes without altering the finish.

Thanks for a great product and great tech support!
