Garage Makeover: How to Achieve the Garage Floor of Your Dreams

Durable, Beautiful DIY Floor

If your garage floor looks a little shabby next to your beautiful new storage cabinets, Rust-Oleum’s RockSolid Metallic Floor Coating Kit could be the answer. The two-part polycuramine coating creates a stunning high-gloss finish that’s tougher than epoxy and impervious to oil and gasoline. Rust-Oleum RockSolid is available in kits that cover 75 to 100 sq. ft. It comes in eight colors, including Brilliant Blue and Cherry Bomb. Careful prep work is critical. After that, applying the coating is an easy DIY project that you and a helper can finish in an afternoon. See more of our garage makeover project.

After Prepping, Mix the Floor Coating

Prep the floors by first removing any oil or grease deposits with a heavy-duty degreaser. Then etch the surface with the citric acid supplied with each kit and thoroughly rinse the floor. After the concrete has completely dried, you can apply the polycuramine floor coating. Roll the pouch until the seal breaks and then mix the two parts together for two to three minutes. Pour it into a clean pail, add the mica flakes and stir for another couple of minutes.
