Another fun adventure in the land of pasta. And ... A few years ago, our renters had a bad sewer clog in the line running from the bathroom to the septic system. Someone (I suspect the "boyfriend") opened up the floor in the laundry room, and found the mainline from the bath to the junction box, and broke open the pipe to get to the "root of the problem". Instead of repairing where he broke into it, he left it a half pipe and out a steel trap door in the floor. Last year... Read more ..read more

Polyaspartic and Urethane Streaking and Blotchy

I've got about 3,000 sq ft of space that I had a contractor come and put an epoxy chip floor coating on, and initially a polyaspartic clear on top -- however, the polyaspartic top coat delaminated and started flaking off in sheets, so the crew came back and scraped all of that coating of and then sanded the chip coating, followed by putting a urethane sealer on. Now that the urethane is on all of it, it looks really blotchy and streaky -- almost like areas are... Read more ..read more

Best (near) permanent 2" tape for marking garage floor

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good tape for laying on the floor ( similar to safety tape on factory floors ). Would like it to be permanent or near permanent, gray ( or blue ). I have searched vinyl garage floor paint, but many seem to have reviews on issues with sticking. I could paint, but when I use paint tape, it does pull up the existing garage floor paint. Thanks ..read more

Questions about Barndo floor

Hello all, I am in the process of building a barndo. The concrete was poured about 16 months ago and power troweled flat. Concrete work turned out nice, some cracks as expected but overall nice. My walls are all complete and ready for insulation then drywall within the next month. First question is when should I complete the floor treatment. I am not sure what finish we are going to go with. I think I will just buff then apply a top finish. I dont know if I need to use a densifier or... Read more ..read more

I'm about to be the owner of a garage that has a floor in pretty bad shape (mid Florida) that I *think* was painted prior. I'm leaning toward tile due to possible floor not being very level and quite a bit of pitting (and the 12 gauge garage looked pretty cool) - thoughts? https://imgur.com/a/ifYHC0V I did do an epoxy floor 14 years ago that had been painted brown before the redo and held up quite well for the 10 years that I owned it (thank Fred at AlphaGarage!) - last pic in the set. I probably... Read more ..read more

Flooring choice, not for the garage
The Garage Journal Board » Flooring
by andyvh1959

Getting further on my kitchen remodel, which includes new flooring. And the flooring will continue into the dining room, down the main hall all the way back to the bedrooms. Vynil flooring is all the rage these days and yet I feel thicker hardwood is the choice. At Home Depot I talked to the local flooring "expert" to review hickory, maple or bamboo flooring versus the variety of vynil. He said vynil for sure for durability and ease of installation, waterproof, all that. Plus it goes down... Read more ..read more

Garage Baseboard Trim Options

Hi all, I had my garage coated in epoxy/flake and polyaspartic top coat today and it looks great. What doesn't look great is the unsightly transition between the wall and the floor. The rim plate (I think that's what it is called) is exposed but in many places it protrudes 1/2" to 1" away from the wall, making putting a normal baseboard like I would inside, impossible. I am looking for options for both material to use for the baseboard, and how to use it to accommodate the rim plate sticking... Read more ..read more

Hello everyone, first time poster. I recently bought a house with a 16x25 ft detached garage. The garage will be used to store my S2000, and do some light work. I don't really take the car out in bad weather, so snow and other elements getting in aren't too much of a concern. My concrete is pretty beat up, and will need to be addressed. The flooring options I'm considering are: -Epoxy: We have some great reputable installers here on Long Island, so longevity would not be in... Read more ..read more
