How to Repair your Damaged Epoxy Floor Coating

Has your garage epoxy floor coating been damaged by a something heavy dragging across it, large heavy tool dropping, or a nasty chemical left sitting forgotten for months. There are many reason your garage floor coating could have been damaged and there are a few repair techniques I’d like to share with you on how you can fix it.  Here is a video where I show you some of the materials and equipment you will need, and also the techniques I use to repair a damaged garage epoxy floor coating.

Additional Garage Floor Coating Repair Tips:

I’ve had good success with thinning the base product with a compatible solvent so it becomes more self leveling.  Then I flood the repair spot (adding slowing) until flush with the surrounding coating. I use a 1 1/2″ brush to work the flow into the repair and edges.  If the base coat is too thick, you may have to do this in two pours. Once the epoxy has cured, a light sanding (240 grit) then top coat the entire section ….. the repair is virtually invisible.  You will have to check with the product manufacturer to see if there is a solvent you can safely cut the base with.  I used Xylol with my many of my products.

Good luck on your Garage Floor Repair and be sure to leave a comment below if you have some great tips to add.

    Gentlemen,

    Great post. I had my epoxy floor completed by a professional and I love it, but I am having one issue. On the exterior exposed side of the garage floor (that fee inches on the exterior side of the garage door), I am getting some peeling and cracking. Unfortunately, the vendor I used from New Hampshire won’t respond to me about getting it fixed. Do you recommend a simple DIY solution to prevent the issue from getting worse or even a company that does repairs? I via about 25 minutes not of Boston.

    Thanks,

    Jim F
