    Default Garage Floor Epoxy

    I am in the process of readying my garage floor for an epoxy coat. I was wondering if anyone knew if you are supposed to fill in the pre-cut parts in the floor before or after paint. Also what is the best to use to fill these in.

    I'm guessing you mean the contol joints.
    It's not necessary to fill them but if you feel you need to then use a latex caulk before applying your covering.

    Unhappy Re: Garage Floor Epoxy

    This is a question for the Epoxy Floor Guy, if he doesn't mind --
    I had my basement floor done for an office/playroom, and the results are terrible; deep cracks showing, an uneven surface (not bubbles, but just the original floor texture). My contractor hasn't seen the dry floor yet but says cracks are to be expected, since my floor wasn't new -- it's seven years old and never touched, though, except for a French drain installed around the edges. The hairline cracks and uneven pitting are everywhere. It looks like someone simply slapped a coat of thin paint on -- not at all like I expected from epoxy.

    Could this be a result of too much heat during drying, as it's a basement application, or some other application error? My guy is experienced and highly recommended, so I'm guessing it's something he didn't foresee in the environment? He never did an interior residential application. Any advice appreciated. I'm heartbroken as I love the bright, clean look of epoxy. At least, what I expected epoxy to be. Many thanks, Tamara
