Epoxy Flooring... Much More Than Garage Floor Paint

Most garage floors are just plain, simple gray concrete. Protect that bare concrete garage floors before it becomes stained by grease, oils, and chemicals, and worse yet, pit and crumble, turning that smooth concrete into an ugly eyesore. Transforming your bare concrete floor with an epoxy flooring will give you years of service, durability and high stain resistance, and will enhance your home for years and increase your property value.

Your new epoxy flooring can be easily cleaned with mild, liquid detergents, hosed down or dust mopped. Now that the floor is protected, grease, oils, and most chemicals will not stain or mark the floor at all.

Professional service from start to finish of my garage floor epoxy coating project. John arrived on time and accomplished what he told me he would each day of the three day job. Older cement was patched carefully and coating applied in a way that evens out the look of the floor. Price in line with other quotes. I would use this company again without any hesitation.

John from Great Lakes Garage is a great guy and a true professional. I had them install cabinets in my garage.They look great and took no time at all to install. Since then, I had then install shelving in my pantry, and custom shelves in my master bedroom closet. What a difference they made providing so much more storage. I'm having John epoxy my garage floor next. I'll post pictures when that is done. Thanks again John

We contacted John for garage cabinets. We had him review closets and give an estimate. We were so pleased with his ideas and estimates that we had him do it all. We were not disappointed. Our pantry is now more efficient and gets rave reviews from all our neighbors. We now walk into the closets and are in awe of finally being organized. So pleased we made this call!

I called John at Great Lakes Garage last fall at the end of the season. He followed up with me in April when he got back working in the spring. John does fabulous work, he shows up on time, delivers what he promises and he makes sure your satisfied. His company saved me thousands by applying the epoxy floor coating to my 60 year old garage floor that was pitted, peeling and deteriorating from salt and age. Instead of tearing out the old floor he coated it and added colored chips and metal flakes. It looks so good, everyone takes off there shoes to enter my garage. I have already had friends redo some of their places after they saw mine. I recommend Great Lakes Garage to anyone who asks.

Could you do it yourself?

You may have seen aisles of concrete floor coating products at your local big-box store, and thought that you could do it yourself. Frankly, any handy person could install a garage floor coating using one of the do-it-yourself kits you could find at the big-box store. But before you get started, consider the following...

Three important factors to consider before deciding between a DIY kit or a Garage Floor Coating Installed by Great Lakes Garage professionals

1. The prep work (the most important step)

A high quality garage floor coating requires a great deal of prep work. The typical box store kit, will generally only recommend an acid etch solution to prepare the floor for the coating. The acid etch just might get the floor fairly clean, but it doesn't even begin to take care of the sealant most concrete garage floors have.

Good prep work before the coating is applied is essential for a successful job. Our process includes:
  • check
    ​Diamond grinding the concrete floor to give it a profile that gives the coating something to attach to. (an acid etch in most cases is simply not aggressive enough)
  • check
    ​Filling cracks and pits using professional grade materials, to ensure a uniform look when the job is all done
  • check
    ​A thorough commercial cleaning, to ensure the floor is free of any dust, debris, or fluids before applying the garage floor epoxy.
2. The quality of the epoxy flooring 

The average 'big-box-store' kit is usually a water based floor coating. DIY floor coating manufacturers use a water-based formula because it extends the pot life (the time you have to work with the coating) to make it easier to use for the average consumer. Most DIY kits are 50% or more water based. Once the floor dries, you're left with a very thin coating that can take up to a week to cure.

Commercial epoxy floor coatings, like we use, contain 100% solids, which require experienced installers, but the results are worth it. A professional flooring job will give you a nice, thick coating that will withstand the test of time. Plus you can have full use of your garage in 24 hours or less!

3. Experienced professional application 

Great Lakes Garage has both the experience and know how to create a great place for you and your car. The goal of our trained staff is to give you a beautiful and durable garage floor, something you can be proud of...something you will be happy to tell your friends about.
