Congratulations to Charles who a joint winner of our December #showusyourproject competition!
December Winner: Slate Grey Epoxy Garage Floor Paint Project
We built a new garage and workshop as an addition to our property. The garage floor is approx 35 m2.
In late Spring we poured 50mm deep self leveling concrete over the top of a 100mm concrete floor.
We allowed the floor to dry out for 6 weeks while plastering and painting the walls. Then this Summer we sanded the garage floor to take out some small deformities.
We vacuumed and mopped the floor allowing it to dry over night. Then using a hand drill and paint stirrer we mixed the first tin of primer and used 2” brushes to go around the edges to about 6”.
Then we rollered the rest of the tin onto the floor in what we considered a fairly generous coat, happy to see we had covered just over half of the floor area.
With the second tin of primer we completed the floor with appropriately 1/3 of the tin remaining.
We waited 24 hours before starting the process again with the top coat.
The top coat went a little further than the primer, having 1/2 of the second tin left over.
The next day it was dry enough to walk on. We then waited the full 7 days before parking vehicles on it.
The floor has now been down for 3 months and the garage section of the project is complete, we couldn’t be happier with it. Every friend and passerby has commented on the floor and the overall positive look it bring to the finished project.
We have now started on the workshop part of the project and will definitely be using Regal Floor Paints again.
