Upgrading my new Garage Floor - Rocksolid Gunmetal

  • Published on Jun 19, 2018
  • UPDATE: See the second video where I fix the job I did in this video here: ru-clip.com/video/V28KSOrTDmk/video.html
    The first step in making this garage the Ultimate Motorcycle Garage 2.0 is first upgrading this stock concrete floor. I decided to go with Rock Solid Gunmetal from Rustoleum. Let's just say the process was interesting
    RockSolid Gunmetal: geni.us/M45B
    *If you are wanting to do this stuff get it off amazon. It's like $30 cheaper than in store for some reason!
    Anti-skid additive: geni.us/SKBPXKX

    I do garage floors as part of my business. I forget how much I didn't know about garage floors when I started. Great job on this floor, you worked through the problems and now you have a great looking floor.

  • Cesar Alejandro Torres

    I have 2 questions, do you park your cars in your garage? If so, have you experience it peeling from the tires? Have you spilled any liquid on the garage floor after applying this? If so, does it peel when the liquid dry's?

    Usually this type of self leveling product we apply it with a squegee that is adjustable to leave a good thickness then we have a guy backroll and it looks much better then that after one coat and also would have done the sides before the floor

    This should be labeled what not to do in epoxy flooring by donkeys😂 a real pro knows that this is just a money pit that everyone will fall into and why? Because you will be calling me or your local professional and guess what we all charge extra for removal 😂 prep was incorrect, cheapest epoxy in the market no matter how you prep it, all those oil stains? I would’ve grounded the floor down in two hours at most. Guaranteed 1 year or Less before it starts to peel,crack, and fade 😂

    So, on your palm sander- I'm using one now and I'm having one Hell of a time knocking the patch down. I'm on 60 grit discs and it only seems to polish it. The sander I'm using vibrates also- could that be working against me?

    • Alexlfm
      Alexlfm 25 days ago +1

      John Conger II A steel wire brush would likely be you next best bet but it would likely still leave imperfections. You may also want to try to smooth it out while it’s still wet with acetone. All of these products take a while to fully cure to be hard enough for sanding.

    • John Conger II
      John Conger II 25 days ago

      @Alexlfm I have an angle grinder with a diamond cup wheel and it's great for leveling the edges of the crack, but when I use it on the epoxy patch, it leave scuff grooves that I'm not sure epoxy paint will fill in.

    • Alexlfm
      Alexlfm 25 days ago +1

      John Conger II That would be because a palm sander is the completely wrong tool for the job. Something like an angle grinder would work much better. Random orbits don’t do much to concrete.
      If possible try to use an angle grinder with a diamond grinding wheel and slowly work it down.
      IMO sanding is not worth the work. These kits are crap anyways and the results never come out very good and always flake. Much better to pay a professional who has the proper tools.

    Hey dude ...rollers are for rolling. Do not swirl... That is why it is not evenly coated

    • bazoballislife
      bazoballislife 25 days ago

      The directions they send literally say to "use the roller to put circular patterns in the coating (like
      applying wax to a car) to ensure there are no bare spots,". I personally did it the way you said it, by rolling, and it turned out great. It was brand new concrete though.

    Looking back I feel like a belt sander could have taken the patch material off better and smoother and primed it with a epoxy black primer before you applied the rock solid . I think you could have achieved better results . But hey you live and learn you did a good job for your first time .

    You fucking suck I can tell you not one painter. Plus when you patched the cracks with the puddy knife you made it so much wider then it should have. That's why your work showed. Dude simple Henry culkin for that cracks was more then good enough. You went way overboard with how to paint a garage. It's not even that hard. The outcome of your job is really poor. I would delete this video.

  • Richard Edwin

    Man there is a sucker born every minute!!! There are products available at Home Depot that do the same thing you are doing that are 1gal premixed epoxy paint, with the acid etching and the clear coat sealant with silica to create a semi-slip resistant surface for a 1/3 of what you have spent on all that unnecessary shit you bought. The kits even come with different color flakes to jazz the floor up. You must have had a red light sucker sign over your head.

    Your ribbons that you poured were too small. Also I’m not sure if you used a squeegee or not, but you move a lot faster and that’s the correct way. As far as your concrete patches goes, we sell a primer coat for applying when patching is needed. It’s going to crate an even uniform finish. But using a squeegee is the correct way. Then you back roll with no pressure. Then swirl with your roller to get the design you want.

    I recommend hiring a professional. Not trying to be negative to this video, I understand he's trying something he has very done, and good for him. This would of taken 2 day, better outcome, better product that will last a lot longer, and knowing how the product acts with different weather and concrete, how to mix properly and the correct tools, is like night and day. The stuff from home depot won't last long and will easily scratch and flake. If you dont really care, go for it. If you want quality, 100% call a professional.

    Good video. It showed how much effort one would have to put in to get to a finished surface....might be to much for a garage that’s going to be covered with garage junk. I think a good point is to do this immediately if you have a brand new garage floor you are considering in the future to putting on a floor topcoat.

    Hire a professional. I charge 5-6k for these floors. I just finished one today and spent $300 just on extra fleck paint chips and covered the entire floor with it. Looks awesome. Hides all imperfections and makes the floor much stronger.

  • Alexander M
    Alexander M 2 months ago

    I admire the fact he finished the project, but this seems to me this is one of those jobs left to the professionals, its like getting your hair cut, yeah you can do it yourself, but that doesn't mean you should. I don't think the floor looks all that bad, too dark for my taste, if I drop a small screw or something on that floor I wont find it. Also the time it takes, is too long, I don't want to take a week vacation working on a floor. I just use concrete paint, true its not as durable, but touching up is easy. And a lot less expensive.

  • Gcal1956

    That etch that comes in that kit just sucks. You would be better off using muriatic acid which you can get at walmart or lowes. It will allow your epoxy to last a lot longer

  • beau brummel
    beau brummel 3 months ago +1

    Concrete/cement etching = Muriatic acid, super cheap at pool supply/home supply hardware store etc. Painters tricks = always pre-prime patches to assure finish holdout and flashing. Multiple thin coats always. Overall it looks pretty damn good, well done.

    You cannot put down a "metallic color" without a basecoat/primer 1st(usually black)....Metallics are transparent. They allow you to see through the Metallic Paint into the underneath color. Hence why u Need to use a Black Primer(Black primer will make the metallics show up good). Just trying to gove a little advice. This Rock Solid product is okay for DIY garages etc. I prefer Industrial grade(But I also do this for a living in Commercial/residential etc).

    I just got Finished with my 2.5 car garage kit and I think I need to go and get another 1 car kit of the ROCK SOLID and redo some sections as it went on SUPER light and I can almost feel concrete through the paint. The shitty thing is, I laid the flakes down already so now I'll have to paint over the flakes and then re flake so I hope it doesn't look shitty. I went heavy on the flakes on the whole floor so I think it will cover up pretty well. I think too that the parts that I did first were in some sunny spots so it made the dry differently than it was supposed to. The back part of the garage looks great though It's just super light and it looks off in certain spots. Ugggg Hope it will turn out ok.

    buddy.... those "swirls" did nothing but thin the product out on the floor and now the concrete is left unprotected in random areas, you can even see through it. If you absolutely had to have that effect, do the design you want as your first coat then top with transparent epoxy. Thanks for the vid though, sorry it didnt come out how you wanted.

    Everyone needs to remember.....it’s a garage floor! It’s not going to be perfect.
    With that said. I used Rustoleum 2 part epoxy in mine. The very first time the floor ever gets coated you will need 2 coats. I then redid it 10 years later and it took the coating much better. And I put the clear epoxy over it when I was done. I added the blue and black flake to make it pop. It looks way better and is much more durable than the first time I did it.
    I for one like the pattern you got out of it!
