Epoxy Garage Coating? ?
Epoxy garage coating is the standard for a tough, durable and aesthetically beautiful garage floor. ?While epoxy paint and epoxy floor coating are often used interchangeably, they are different products with different chemical components.
Epoxy floor coating is tougher and more durable than epoxy paint. Installing epoxy floor coating also creates a hardwearing and high gloss finish.
Careful preparation of the concrete surface prior to installation is crucial to the success of epoxy floor coating installation. Many garages have become more functional and beautiful because of epoxy garage coating installation.

Epoxy Garage Coating on Old Concrete
When epoxy garage coating is installed over an old concrete floor, it must first be properly prepared. With this in mind, our expert epoxy installers clean and degrease the concrete surface to remove dust, dirt, debris, grease and oil stains.
Cleaning and degreasing the old concrete floor prior to epoxy coating installation prevents flaking, puckering, and blistering. It also prevents other epoxy installation errors.
Our well-trained and experienced epoxy installers meticulously go through the concrete surface preparation.
- Existing paints or coatings are removed.
- Existing sealers are removed through shot blasting.
- Presence of moisture is determined. Epoxy should never be installed over a concrete surface when relative humidity exceeds 75 unless moisture migration is done.
- Any concrete cracks or chips are repaired.
Proper concrete surface preparation is done to ensure the success of the epoxy garage coating installation.
Epoxy Garage Coating on New Concrete
Epoxy garage coating can also be installed over new concrete. New concrete is alkaline in nature having a 10-12 pH level. New concrete also comes with a high content of moisture.
These conditions will interfere with the proper adhesion of the epoxy coating with the concrete surface causing peeling and bubbling. Allowing new concrete to cure for at least 30 days can bring down alkalinity and moisture levels.
Before starting the installation of epoxy coating, we make sure that the alkalinity of new concrete is down to at least 9 or less. This will allow the epoxy coating to adhere well with the concrete surface.
We also do a moisture test to make sure there is no condensation in the area where epoxy coating is going to be applied.
Longevity of Epoxy Garage Coating
At Epoxy Floors New Jersey, we guarantee the long lifespan of our epoxy garage coating. We adhere to all the conditions necessary for epoxy coating to last for many years.
Thorough preparation of the concrete surface is one of the main pre-requisites of a superior quality epoxy garage coating. ?We make sure that the concrete surface is free of all contaminants and minor damage before we start the installation process.
Condition of the Concrete Surface
We make sure the concrete surface, which is the base of the epoxy coating, is in good structural form. We add densifiers if the strength of the concrete floor is less than 2500 PSI.
Thickness of the Epoxy Coating
Thin epoxy coatings are easy and quick to install and is the ideal choice for low traffic areas. They are easier to clean and maintain and come with a high aesthetic appeal. Thick epoxy coatings, on the other hand, are best for eroded and heavily damaged concrete floors.
Depending on the expected traffic, condition of the concrete floor and amount of chemical exposure the garage floor will be subjected to, we install epoxy coating between .2 mils to 250 mils or ? inch.
Of course, we only use top quality epoxy garage coating products.
