You want your garage floor to look beautiful and clean. At the same time, you don't want to break the bank to get there. Should you handle the work on your own or hire a professional garage floor coating company in the Durham, NC area? It's ultimately up to you to decide. However, it's important to know what goes into the job and the potential risks of a DIY approach.
What Goes into Garage Floor Coating
When it comes to home improvement projects, proper prepping is key to success. Coating your garage floor is no different. If you don't take the time to prepare the space, you're going to wind up with messy results. So what goes into prepping? A few steps:
- Cleaning out the space and removing all the items.
- Sweeping it out and using a smaller broom to reach into corners.
- Spot treating stains, like oil and paint, to remove them as much as possible.
- Hosing out your garage and power washing it to fully clean out ground-in dirt and contaminants.
- Using a grinder on the floor to ensure the new coating properly adheres to it.
Once you're done prepping, it's then time to coat. However, if you don't use the right products or tools, it's easy to make a mistake. For instance, many stores sell DIY floor coating kits that contain products that produce a much thinner finish. It might look good at first, but won't stand up to wear and tear. It will eventually peel, crack, chip, and lead to problems with hot tire pickup.
