New Home Garage Floor Coating ~ What to know!

So you’re moving into a new home. When is the best time to have a protective garage floor coating applied? Before you move it! That is, if you have the luxury of time on your side.

Epoxy & Poly Coating

The garage floor coating application is a 2-4 day process, depending on the coating system you choose. There are even 1 day coating applications, but they generally will cost a bit more. Your new floor will typically allow light foot traffic 24 hours after completion and vehicle traffic after 7 days. There are coating systems that will give a quicker dry time, but again, there is a cost for the convenience.

When moving into your new home, be cautious of placing cardboard boxes on a new floor coating that has not reached the optimal cure time. Moisture can be trapped between the box and floor. There have even been cases where ink on a printed box has transferred onto the new coating. These cases are rare, but, it’s wise to heed the dry time guidelines from your installer.Garage Epoxy Flooring

It is also a good idea to ask your mover to use cloth tarps when rolling furniture dollies in and out of your home through the garage. This will help minimize your new floor being accidentally scratched.

As an entry level, all around GOOD coating, you can’t go wrong with an Epoxy and Polyurethane coating. This is a 2-coat, solid color thin film system. This garage floor coating system provides great scratch resistance, heat resistance and an easy to clean surface. Oils, etc. will wipe up with a paper towel.
