Have you ever taken a close look at your garage floor and noticed have much torture it has taken through the years? There are discolorations and stains all over caused by road debris, motor oil and gasoline spills. There are also visible chips and cracks.

Before you block off your entire weekend working on your epoxy garage floor with some friends and family members, consider the difference should you decide to instead hire professionals to do the job.
Properly preparing the concrete surface prior to the application of epoxy is something you will find difficult to achieve. All stains and dirt should be removed using industrial cleaning products such as muriatic acid. The process can be tedious especially when a stain is too tough to remove.
A professional epoxy installer will use a diamond grinder to make sure the surface is free of dirt, dust, contaminants and previously applied sealants or coatings. It will also smoothen the concrete surface. These should be done to ensure that epoxy will completely adhere to the surface.
Epoxy in an Epoxy DIY kit is inferior in durability and strength than the epoxy coating professional installers use. The epoxy will eventually peel off and chip because most are just enamel paints or fortified latex. Of course you will still get the glossy finish but isn’t strength and durability also your main concern?
