Garage floors are often overlooked when it comes to home improvements. People often can’t fathom investing in an expensive floor for a room that will be exposed to tires, heavy machinery, spills, and tools. But in reality, you don’t have to spend an exorbitant amount of money to get a garage floor that looks better and functions better than an average garage floor.

SUNDEK has several options for garage floor coatings.
SunEpoxy54 (epoxy): Perfect for spaces like residential garage floors or locations where light manufacturing occurs.
SunEpoxy100 (epoxy): Good for spaces that see a lot of traffic and experience heavy manufacturing.
SunOne (polyaspartic): For customers who need a quick turnaround time. Even though a job can be completed quickly with SunOne, it’s still extremely durable.
SunMetal (used with any of the products list above): Can be used to create a smooth finish that can be made to look like marble, moon craters, or a lava lamp.
The cost of applying an epoxy or polyaspartic coating to your garage floor depends on several things: the size of your garage, the condition of your existing concrete slab, and what design you want (for example, do you want additives or a metallic finish?). The best way to get an accurate estimate is to contact a contractor such as SUNDEK of Nashville.
Before you embark on the task of applying an epoxy or polyaspartic coating to your garage floor yourself, know that it’s not a simple DIY. Though it can be done, it requires meticulous attention at each step. For example, if you don’t mix the material properly before application, you may end up with soft spots on your floor. If you haven’t properly cleaned the surface, you may end up with bubbling or cracks in the coating.
If you do decide to do it yourself, be sure to do thorough research and read the product instructions carefully.
An experienced contractor such as SUNDEK of Nashville knows what common pitfalls to avoid and the best strategies to get the best result. A local contractor will also know what types of weather conditions are best for installation—and which conditions lead to difficulty in application.
Even if your surface is dusting, spalling, cracking, or showing other signs of damage, you can still have an epoxy coating applied. You or the contractor you hire will need to fix the damage before applying the coating. If you are hiring a contractor, it’s important that they inspect the extent of the damage before they begin the project. Be sure to seek out a contractor with experience in concrete repair such as SUNDEK of Nashville.
Before epoxying your floor, it's important to determine what caused the damage so you can prevent it from happening again. Here's some of the common types of damage people get on their garage floors and what causes it.
In addition to fixing the damage, an experienced contractor such as SUNDEK of Nashville can assess your site to determine how to prevent future damage. We’ll also assess the damage and provide suggestions for how to prevent it from happening again.
As long as non-slip additives are included during the installation of an epoxy or polyaspartic coating, they will not be slippery. A reputable contractor will already be planning to create a surface that’s not slippery when wet, but for your own safety it’s important to discuss this topic during the planning phases.
