4)      The Hobbyist

5)      The Real Estate Agent

6)      The Retiree

7)      The Super Organized

Is this you?   Read on to see which group or groups you belong to…

#1 – The Parent:  Tell them to “Go Play in the Garage!”

expoxy-bagsIt’s raining, just pouring.  The kids are getting edgy and the novelty of that video game is gone.  Aaaggghhhh!!!!

You don't stress.  With the clean finish of your epoxy coating, you send them out to the garage to play ping pong, throw some corn-hole or setup the ultimate Lego city.  You keep the house clear and they get to have some fun.

Even if they do get a little wild and spill the Kool-aid,it’s no big deal.  Your floor is sealed and a few paper towels take care of the problem.  No worrying about stains and carpet clea


#2 – The Retiree:  Come home to the garage you deserve


You’ve built that home of your dreams.  You’ve made sure you can spend your golden years here with no more modifications.   The only room that was forgotten during construction was the

garage.  But now you have a durable, beautiful decorative chip floor with a traction additive in the clear coat.  

#3 – The Car Enthusiast:  Create your own showroom

A car show is an opportunity to show off your special automobile.  Strangers from anywhere and everywhere get to check out your dream machine.  

The car show doesn’t end when you pull that 4 wheeled beauty into your garage.  Nope, it’s just coming home to rest awhile in its permanent showroom, its art gallery, its auto spa.  Your garage isn’t just a box with 2 garage doors.   It’s a complete showroom:  faux-terrazzo coatings, vintage wall posters, LED lighting and every car cleaning product known to mankind.   

#4 – The Home Handyman:   Work in a safer environment

You don’t call a plumber. You don’t need Angie’s List for a furniture medic recommendation.  You can fix this yourself.  A quick trip to the garage for the right tools and you have this fixed up in no time at all.

After last year’s costly mishap caused by spilled wood varnish on your garage’s concrete floor, you fixed the problem with a permanent, professional garage finish.   Never again fall in that spill when trying to minimize the BIG, BROWN varnish stain on your garage floor.  You would prefer to never again spend a few hours on Saturday afternoon finding out you hurt your left rotator cuff. 

Now, you go out and sand, stain, sand, clear coat and admire your handwork.  

#5 – The Hobbyist:  Create the special space for your passion

You were tired of sharing your model construction table with the laundry.  Your planes took a lot of time to build and you don’t want to find another laundry basket sitting against your most recent creation.

So, you finally found the perfect use for that 3rd garage bay.  The same bay which used to be the place where “STUFF” just built up is now your personal nirvana.   The solid color, epoxy coatings created a bright, uniform surface that makes finding even the smallest dropped screw easy to find. 

Your construction table, air compressor, air-brush and completed models have created your man-cave.  

#6 – The Real Estate Agent:  Close that sale in record time

“Let me show you how this 3 bedroom, two and a half bath, ‘just went on the market’ house could welcome you home.  Let me just punch in the garage door code.” you tell this excited couple. 

The look on their face as they see wall-to-wall coatings and finished steps leading into the mudroom says it all.  You just sold this home on day 1 and the first time you showed it.    “Welcome home, Peggy & John.  Enjoy your new home.”

#7 – The Super Organized:  Put the finishing touch on the garage

The cabinets took 2 hours to assemble and 1 more to mount on the back wall.   The slat wall was a Saturday afternoon install and 2 hours to get all the hooks in just the right spot to hold everything.   That ceiling mounted kayak lift was a little trickier, but you got it after a try or two.

The picture of perfect organization, right?   You bet.  Nothing (other than the car) sits on your shiny, just mopped, epoxy floor coatings.  “Everything in its place and a place for everything.”

Oops! We forgot a few…

Before-After-KingsvilleOK. So the reality is there are a lot more than 7 groups of people who love epoxy floor coatings in their garage.  Just off the top of my head…

The workshop owner; the home seller; the home builder; the home mechanic; the new car owner; the car restorer…
