Do It Yourself Garage Floor Repair

Garage floors often crack and most of us have found ourselves in the position of trying to figure out what to do about it. Cracking garage floors are inevitable, but often relatively easy to repair if you have the right garage floor covering supplies. For most, this will mean getting garage floor epoxy and applying it themselves. Luckily, there’s a local company in Jupiter, FL that can give you all the supplies that you need to do your garage floor epoxy project by yourself. Since the application of the epoxy is actually quite simple, it’s very important that you get quality materials from a reputable company instead of substituting for cheaper, less-quality materials. Maverick Composites can supply all this to you at a very affordable price and great value.

Garage Floor Covering

When it comes to garage floors, you do have a few options for coverings. You can go with rigid snap-together tiles, epoxies, floor mats, paint, stains, sealers, and more. While all of these options are viable for different needs, it’s been a long established fact that epoxies are the most effective, durable, and best-looking of all the possible solutions. Epoxies are applied just like paint and go on pretty easily. Most epoxies come in two parts that you mix together. After mixed, you apply them just as you would paint with a long paint roller. Because epoxy is so effective and long-lasting, there is a significant amount of prep that goes into it. Garage floor epoxy works best when applied to a well-prepared surface. This means that you should wash your garage floor well and wait for it to dry. If there is a large amount of sediment on the floor, the epoxy will have a hard time settling correctly and you may not achieve the desired results. Since you obviously don’t want to do it all over again, you want to make sure that you give the epoxy a good surface to adhere to on the first try.


Once you are ready to apply the epoxy, you need to work quickly because it can harden pretty fast. If you leave the epoxy for too long in the bucket, it will get hard and become unusable, which puts a significant delay in your plans. Once the epoxy is applied, be sure to not drive on it for at least a week while it hardens. Driving on the epoxy before then could damage the floor covering and it won’t be effective or look good.
