Polished Concrete Garage Floor

Hey guys, I just closed on my new house. My house warming present to myself is having the garage floor polished and colored.

Here is a pic after a day of grinding. She is nice and flat now.




tomorrow they finish the job..... Can't wait to park the 930 in there

Awesome. What could be better than walking out to your 930 in the garage and catching an unexpected up skirt reflection.

A little crack in the corner needed sealing and the PO had put carpet down. Instead of glueing it he used tack strips so there were a bunch of little holes they also patched. Amazingly at this stage in the process they blended in perfectly

one word of caution: if you go with a dark coloring/stain/epoxy, ensure you have enough lighting.

Congratulations!
I heard you were buying a place close to West Palm. I hope it all goes well for you.

There are good coatings for concrete floors and the best stuff is used at airports in airplane hangers. High end race teams use the same stuff.

Medium light grey is what I've seen most of the time.

Sure, Arizona Polymer flooring Acid stain, applied via scrub brush (don't do that, merely spray it on with a sprayer, as I have brush marks).

Let sit a few hours, mop off with baking soda to neutralize. Let dry a few days, apply sealant (Do some research on this: I was told to use the wrong item by my local seller: I should have called the APF.

YUP, closed on monday. We're going to officially move in this weekend. I wanted the garage floor done before I start moving in my junk. It's supposed to be finished this evening when I get home. I'll snap some pics.. I went with a grey color

Will look really nice when it's done I'm certain. Stain resistant, easy cleanup, and slicker 'n snot on a doorknob if it gets wet (or oily). Way cool, fer shur.....

almost done... decided not to stain it dark



well, the rust stain that is in the dead center of the garage won't go away. we would have to stain the floor pretty dark to hide it but i kind of like the natural grain of the floor, and it's not as bad in person. the camera really pics it up.
