Your hard-working garage deserves to look its best. Dy-Mark Epoxy Coat, a D.I.Y. garage floor coating kit, will make your garage look showroom-chic. All you need is a couple of weekends and you’ll have a fresh garage floor.
This handy guide is an overview of the process and will help you get started. For complete instructions, and to ensure a durable and long-lasting finish, read and follow the product instruction manual.
Use a brush to cut in the edges and then use a roller to apply the epoxy. Work in sections of one square metre, scattering decorative flakes over the wet sections as they’re laid. For the best result, your new epoxy floor should cure for seven to 10 days before restarting heavy vehicle or foot traffic.
Tip: Choose the right option for your garage: solvent-based kits will give a glossy finish to your floor, while water-based kits provide a chic satin finish.

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
