    This is why DIY kits are a waste of money. Hire a pro or just paint the floor

    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.

    You could have used the copper and mixed in with the metallic and made a marble design!!

    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.

    What you should’ve done was paint thin layer of primer on the floor first to have a solid base dark color. Then paint the epoxy. Simple

    Rustoleum has several garage floor systems, did you look into and compare, rock solid, and epoxy pro, etc..? Some use the colored flakes you broadcast into the wet paint.

    Should have waited till day two to fill the cracks in because there was probably still water in the cracks witch means you’ll probably have cracks in your newly vamped floor and have tore do it

    Wow, too much work for my old floor. Good job filming this and good job prepping that concrete. Anxious to see how it holds up to hot tires in a few months.
    Your compressor loves you. Turns on soon as you start talking. Mine do the same thing which is why I finally popped for a belt drive model...quieter.

    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!

    You should have tinted the floor with a dark grey then used the epoxy. Stone coat countertops would have been a better product to use

    Always start with a primer and maybe try watching a few RU-clip videos on how to use the product before making a video of how to use the product.

    doNT BOTHER WITH 120 GRIT either, it wont matter how rough the finish is as the coating will easily fill scratches. It may even fill those small cracks as the product is self leveling.

    I went thru 3 coatings and expoxies before finally getting it right ,I power washed as much failed epoxy off and used a floor sander to get the remaining paint up ,I used the power washer to etch 1/32 inch deep lines going N S E and west ,the best thing I did was to seal the garage and put two 70 pint fast extraction dehumidifiers in the garage for a week to get humidity down to 5% before applying primer ,when I primed I used a 4 inch stiff bristle broom type brush to litteraly grind the primer in and allowed the primer to cure 72 hours ,when I applied the epoxy I cut in the edges with 3 brush coats before applying the main floor area using a notched squgee ,I squegeed 4x4 areas that left a 25- 30 mil layer of epoxy and cast my black n white paint chips in , I repeated doing 4x4 areas until complete and allowed the floor to cure for 2 weeks while leaving the dehumidifiers keeping humidity below 10% ,the epoxy is so thick & durable the kickstands on my motorcycles don't scratch it and tire steer marks don't hurt the finish .

    If you live in a northern climate with lots of snow and especially if salt is used on the roads, don't bother ever trying anything in a box to do this. You'll get tire lift from the heat of the tires in the summer as the salt from the winter eats through the epoxy after a year or so.

    Where in those directions does it say thin coat? I'm curious because you want epoxy on fairly thick. This was bad business all around but I hope it looks ok for you and holds up. Could be a hell of a mess 2 years from now.

    The Sand you put in the Epoxy Floor Coating will actually be ruff on ya if ya need to get on the floor also and it also will come off from your tires and wear off easier.
