I have to tell you that I was very impressed by the service and quality of the flooring and the delivery schedule. It was much better than I ever hoped for and other than trying to get the rolls separated on the truck and up to the garage (kind of a challenge as the truck firm called and asked me if I had a fork lift. LOL) whatever the case they were very kind to help at Yellow Freight and deserve a huge compliment.
I did cut a roll totally length wise and put the seams under the cars and I am glad I did. More work but I think it was worth it as it left a clear walkway between two of the cars out of the double side of the garage. This project was big enough to almost use up 3- 10×24’ rolls If there is ever a next time I would do a couple things different as I had the inner part of the roll unrolled at the front of the garage so it takes a little longer to settle but not a big deal. I used seem tape on a few of the seams going around a post and only where the material was a little short in order to fill in.
It made a 1000 percent difference in the garage and I could not be happier.
Anyway, I was very impressed and have already forwarded your info to another friend whom is thinking about doing it.
How Well Does Rust Bullet Stand Up TO Freeze Thaw Cycles
Like a lot of the country, here in Colorado, we can go from below freezing and snowing to warm and sunny in less than a day. Freeze thaw can destroy concrete and many coatings products. This test takes a look at how well Rust Bullet does when exposed to harsh temperature extremes. This give us an idea of just how well it will perform when you coat your garage floor with it.
Few things are more important when it comes to a coating product than how well it sticks. Rust Bullet has some of the most impressive test results we have seen were a major contributing factor to bringing on the line.
In this test Rust Bullet adhesion is tested after being scored and an adhesive tape being ripped off. Rust Bullet tested at 100% as did some of the competitors. As you will see in the coming posts. Rust Bullet was the only product that consistently performed.
I am hardly a home mechanic. The truth is I don’t even change my own oil. It never seems to fail that when I do sit down to tinker with something I end up making a mess on the garage floor. Drymate just added the Drymate Maintenance Mat to its offering. Its made very similar to their other mats, but it is sized (54×72) to be portable.
Read This Before You Paint or Epoxy Your Garage Floor
For over a decade, I have been quoted as saying garage floor coating cannot be easy. I have been very upfront in stating that the big box store $99 garage floor kits in a box won’t work and that frankly nothing would. I was right about the cheap garage floor coatings and paints you find at a home center. I was WRONG when I said coating a garage floor can’t be easy. All this time a better coating product has been right under my nose. It was just created for a different industry. Very frankly, this post is going to upset a lot of people in the industry. It might even upset our largest epoxy supplier. You can very very easily coat your residential, commercial or industrial garage floor starting at under .83 cents a square foot.
It all started when I was skeptical about an article published by another industry insider. I was curious enough that I fired off an email to the manufacturer. An email lead to a conference call with their CEO and technical guru. Then some samples and some additional research.
Honestly. I am floored. The product was originally designed for abrasion resistance on the wings of aircraft. It quickly spread to automotive and other applications. What has been greatly under-realized, or perhaps better stated under sold is how ridiculously effective the product is over concrete.
It does not lift from hot tires, it was formulated with magnesium chloride in mind and, it generally does not require you to mess with harsh acids, caustic chemicals or break your back grinding the floor. There are also no complicated mix ratios and no need to worry about the stuff hardening in the can.
How easy is it? Just get your floor clean and dry. If you have some oil stains, you need to use a degreaser and make sure they are removed enough that the coating can penetrate. Stir the stuff for three minutes, BY HAND, and roll it on. Then put on another coat, 2 -48 hours later.
.83 cents is based on two coats. I like the looks of three for my own garage. If I was doing an industrial or commercial application, it would require four.
The clear coat is an option that gives it an amazing, ultra glossy look. Another option is the top coat. I like the look of the base material and I personally would have no need to use a top coat.
Highlights of this Coating for Me:
Hot tires are simply not an issue
Sticks to concrete
No mixing of different parts. Believe it or not this step is one of the biggest factors in failed coating projects and projects that don’t cure.
I HATE acid and I don’t like the dust or work of grinding a floor. I just won’t do it. This product does not require it, but it still performs.
Creates an outstanding seal to keep anything from penetrating the concrete. If your garage has a room below it, please contact us so we can discuss the best methods of install.
Product was designed for much harsher UV exposure than any garage would ever see. It will not yellow.
It is resistant to Oil and many other chemicals, including chemicals found in snow-melt that destroy your concrete.
Very flexible and less likely to crack or chip from impact
Easy to clean with little maintenance
We have not tried the product with flake. We do not know of any reason you can’t use flake, but we have not tried it. If you use flake you need to top coat it with their clear coat.
If you use clear coat or any of the color coats it is really glossy and slick. You HAVE to use non slip additive or someone will get hurt.
Epoxy products still have their place. We have a full line of DIY and Professional grade garage floor epoxy products.
Justin, I have a garage floor and I want to coat it with something. Garage floor epoxy systems appear to be really expensive and we are on a tight budget. Should I just use a garage floor paint and perhaps even upgrade later?
You can walk into almost any hardware store, home center or paint store and buy some inexpensive garage floor paint. At one point in my career, I was so caught up on the price these products were being offered at, I decided we should offer them too. What a mistake!
My suggestion would be that you use Rust Bullet urethane based garage floor coating as an alternative to cheap paint or epoxy. You can install the basic system for around 83 cents. Unlike the cheap stuff you will find in the stores, the product works and works well. It is especially effective against hot tire lifting and chemicals found in the garage.
But what is wrong with a good old-fashioned garage floor paint? Everything! First of all, they never cover what they say they are going to cover and you always end up needing multiple coats. Now there is noting wrong with multiple coats, unless you only had one in the budget.
The next issue is the peel, fade and lift from hot tires. They also do not protect the floor as well as our Rust Bullet systems. An often overlooked fact is that once the product fails, you are going to need to completely strip it before you can coat the floor with something else.
Cars are stolen all the time around the world, not all are found. Police have failed to recover 12% of the vehicles that have been stolen between 2012 and 2014. The number one vehicle that has been stolen and not recovered is the Ford F- series truck. There has been 1290 stolen and 206 where never found. Now I know Ford is a popular vehicle and it makes sense to me. Fords are everywhere making it easy to blend in. By clicking here you will be able to see if your vehicle is on the top 10 list of stolen and unrecovered list.

We have decided to give a very simple ‘seal of approval’ to a select group of products within our website. Let me start with what it does not mean. It does not mean that this is the very best floor for each and every application. Every floor is different.
Within each product grouping there are specific products that we as a company have become fond of. In some cases, I have personally used the product in my own home. In all cases I have hands on experience with the product. The Editors’ Choice seal is simply there to give you an idea as to what products we prefer.
If you are a little cynical, you might think well, they simply recommend the products they sell for the most money or have the highest margins on. You might be surprised to learn that, in some cases, Roll Out flooring for example, we actually prefer one of our less expensive products — and I have it in my garage.
In other cases it came down to customer reviews. I like both the 50 Mil Park Smart Clean Park and the AutoFloorGuard. The AutoFloorGuard has maintained a 4.5 star rating on a major marketplace where we offer product. As we dug deeper into it, people like the ease of installation –and that was enough to tip the scales in its’ favor.
The vast majority of our products have not been given the Editor’s Choice seal on our site. Many of them are best sellers, and the lack of that seal does not mean we do not recommend the product. We only picked one, or in one case, two products from specific categories.
In short, Editors’ Choice means if I were (and I have) putting a product in that category in my own home, the Editor’s Choice product is what I would use.
A lost and forgotten collection of cars was found and revealed in France. Many of Baillon’s car collection were sold back in the 70’s, everyone assumed that the entire collection was sold. Now that this has been found it will now be up for sale in February. There is a one-of-three Frua-bodied Maserati A6G Gran Sports, along with many other classic vehicles.
