If you are thinking about concrete paint for your garage floor, then we think you should think twice about that option. The concrete paint that you can put on your garage floor, does not hold up well. It is our experience here in the Kansas City area that there is a huge rate of failure and we often hear things like “I wish I never would have painted it”.
Here are some pictures of concrete pain that has failed in the garage:
Most concrete paints do not have the best adhesion to the surface, and additionally to not have contaminants and bond-breakers removed prior to the concrete paint being applied. Additionally, these paints don’t have the best “sealing” capabilities to protect your concrete from damage due to water and salt mixtures.
The best coating for a garage floor is generally epoxy. Epoxy floors can also include texture which is another issue that paint can’t deal with and often times makes the floor even more slippery than just concrete.
In Kansas City it is recommend that you hire a reputable company to install epoxy due to the sealer that is typically applied to concrete garage floors in this area. You may want to chose a site sponsor like SealKC (www.sealkc.com) for an expert epoxy garage floor installation.
