Epoxy painted floors are popular for covering concrete in the garage, warehouse flooring, military floors and other applications. If you have a new concrete floor, then epoxy may work for you. However if your concrete has stains or is in disrepair then putting down epoxy is very labor intensive, and expensive.
Repairing concrete that is stained or has old paint on it requires several days and steps of cleaning and prepping the concrete. To remove old paint or stains, you will acid wash the floor to loosen the epoxy or stains. If stains have penetrated the concretes top layer, you may need to grind down a layer of concrete to remove the stain. Acid wash is a harsh chemical, and protective gear is highly recommended.
New concrete can have issues as well. If you have concrete that has high ground moisture then once the paint is installed, the ground moisture can rise up between the concrete and paint causing it to come loose and peel. High moisture concrete has a tendency to peel within 6 months to a year. If you have a high moisture it is recommended you hire a professional to install.
