⁣I put this video together to help anyone wanting to do their own epoxy floors. The products used for this floor are Arizona Polymer Flooring APF E400 in Safety blue. The clear coat is APF P100.

APF Epoxy 400

APF P100

We put epoxy over new concrete, cut epoxy is a great option to go over old concrete and make it look like new. Because epoxy has color in it, it doesn't matter if the concrete is old and has stains on it, as long as you clean it really good, the epoxy will stick very well to concrete and give you an amazing look. Epoxy is not limited to solid colors, you can also do metallic epoxy floors, which use metallic flakes to give you amazing variations in colors and make it look amazing. Many people do metallic epoxy floors in their garage to enhance the look and give them a show room look.

You can also put epoxy over wood. If you have a countertop, you can seal the wood with APF P250 first, and then put epoxy over it, and come back with a food grade clear coat to make it food safe. Epoxy has tons of different uses not limited to concrete. I hope this video helps you tackle your own project. Good luck.

Our garage/workshop floor was NASTY! I have always wanted to do an epoxy floor coating in the garage but honestly, it seemed way to hard to pull off. I finally decided to make it happen and I am excited to say that it worked! I saved a TON of money doing it myself and we couldn't be happier with the result. We use this area multiple times a day and every time I step foot on it I am thankful I did it. At the end of it all, it only cost me about $800 compared to nearly the $4,000 it would have cost me to have it done. Below, I have a detailed YouTube video, all the steps I followed to complete the project and the links to everything I used. I am certain that you can do it!

STEP 1 Remove all the stuff on the floor and take low hanging items off the walls.
STEP 2 Pressure Wash the entire floor. Let dry.
STEP 3 Apply stain remover to tough spots or entire surface (I recommend entire surface). Then pressure wash.
STEP 4 Apply degreaser to tough pots or entire surface (again, I recommend entire surface). Then pressure wash.
STEP 5 Apply concrete etching to entire surface. Then pressure wash.
STEP 6 Let dry for 48 hours.
STEP 6.1 Use this time to apply quikrete, great stuff to fill gaps, caulk, and primer/paint to all areas of need.
STEP 6.2 Sand quikrete areas and finalize all paint touchups.
STEP 7 Mix the epoxy base and prepare to paint and spread decorative chips.
STEP 8 Paint the floor. (Have a buddy go behind and spread the decorative chips right away.) Allow to dry 24 hours.
STEP 9 Go across the entire floor with a brush or hand in a work glove to loosen any decorative chips that did not dry flat.
STEP 10 Blow out all the loose decorative chips. (There weren't many.)
STEP 11 Prep the clear coating mix by mixing in the non skid sand. (Highly recommend using some measure of it).
STEP 12 Paint the floor. Allow to dry 24 hours.

⁣Episode 26
⁣Garage Build - Acid Staining Concrete - YouTube

Welcome back, friends! Today we undertake a colossal step in the garage build - Acid staining the concrete floor! We are not sponsored by any brands shown - these were personal choices we made when shopping for products.

I'll show you the steps I took to prep and stain this floor walnut brown. This garage is going to be a rustic, stone & iron theme, so shiny/perfect finishes are not the goal for any part of this build.

Acid staining provides an imperfect, natural stone look for concrete that I absolutely love. You'll also get to see some amateur mistakes made during this process that we address before this is done...

Thanks for watching and remember to like/subscribe for more on this build!
