We are the top-rated exterior painting and power washing experts in the Triangle area with over 125 five-star Google reviews. Whether you use your garage flooring to keep your car safe from the elements, store seasonal items, or use it as a workspace, you want to keep it looking clean and neat. After all, your garage is still a part of your home!
Fortunately, Raleigh garage floor epoxy can solve many of the problems associated with a concrete garage floor. Epoxy is a long-lasting solution to keeping your garage beautiful and most of the time making your garage look like another room to your home.
We use a product called Armor Seal Rexthane from Sherwin Willman’s. If oil spills or any other product leaks onto the top-coated floor, it wipes up easily and the floor can also be rinsed out with a hose and soap to look new again.
Garage Floor Epoxy Painting Services
CLH Painting confidently uses commercial-grade Armor Seal Rexthane by Sherwin Williams as our garage floor epoxy in Raleigh homes and businesses. Armor Seal is a one-component epoxy that requires minimal surface preparation and goes on smoothly and quickly. This is a durable, attractive garage floor coating that is brushed and rolled over existing concrete and protects it. Armor Seal is a commercial coating and once its put down it doesn’t come up, unlike the big box stores 2 part epoxy systems.
Unlike DIY epoxy kits at hardware stores, Armor Seal Rexthane provides amazing resistance against the hot-tire pickup. This occurs when heat from tire tread warms the garage floor coating and bonds to the tire. As the coating and the tire cool, the tread pulls at the coating, removing small pieces from the floor or even causing larger sections to peel away. This is commonly seen in 2 part “big box store” epoxies and we don’t see this with commercial-grade epoxies, especially not Armor Seal.

Common Garage Floor Epoxy Questions
How durable are epoxy garage floors?
Epoxy garage floors are resistant to nearly everything including bleach, oil, transmission fluid, gasoline, cleansers, and many other chemicals unlike bare, uncovered concrete and other paints that are commonly used on garage floors. Along with that, because epoxy can be applied directly on concrete garage floors, as well as other surfaces, installation costs are typically lower than other routes.
How long does garage floor epoxy last?
Garage floor epoxy typically lasts anywhere from 10-20 years, though that timeframe it can change depending on how well it’s maintained. When determining the lifespan of garage floor epoxy, one thing to keep in mind will be the overall use of the floor. The amount of traffic the floor receives, and the overall maintenance of the floor are all factors worth taking into consideration.
How do I maintain garage floor epoxy?
When it comes to maintenance, it is highly recommended to regularly sweep and thoroughly clean the floor every month or two. A good scrubbing with dish soap and washing it out with a hose should be performed once a year.
Is garage floor epoxy a DIY job?
Absolutely not. Garage floor epoxy projects need to be handled by an experienced professional, as the hardening chemical process is intricate. If the garage floor is not prepared correctly before applying the epoxy, it will likely need to be redone, which can quickly become costly. Stay clear of those avoided extra costs and contact a professional!
Is my new garage floor ready for epoxy?
If you have a new construction garage floor that’s never been driven on then its ready to go using a professional pressure washer to remove construction debris. If you have an existing garage floor that’s been driven on or an older home then we typically apply muriatic acid to open up the pores of the concrete and burn off the top layer of debris from over the years. Then we power wash it off to help the new epoxy stick to the older garage floors. If your garage floor already has an epoxy on it then it must be removed by a concrete grinder before the new epoxy can be applied. Still not sure? Well let’s see!
