Don’t DIY Your Floors

There are a number of Orlando garage ideas that you can tackle yourself when updating your garage. You can set up shelves, hang your bikes from the ceiling, and organize your tools relatively easily. Though organization projects are simple enough to handle on your own, installing an epoxy floor coating without the help of an experienced professional can be more work than you expect. Here are a few reasons to hire an experienced professional to upgrade and improve your garage floor.

Conditions Have to be Perfect

Installing epoxy floor coatings requires that the conditions inside the garage are as close to ideal as possible. Humidity and moisture levels have to be just right, temperature must be controlled, and the solution must be spread at the right consistency. Otherwise, the coating won’t set properly, and you’ll be left with a peeling garage floor that’s even more difficult to clean than before you spread the coating.

Mistakes Happen

Even an experienced professional can have an installation go awry. However, unlike DIYers, they have the knowledge and tools to fix problems as they arise. This ensures that the installation can be completed without having to redo the coating entirely. If you handle the installation yourself, you may not be able to spot warning signs before the coating is ruined, and you’ll need to start over from scratch.

It Will Save You Money in the Long Run

It may seem less expensive to order the materials yourself, but if an installation goes wrong and you have to start over, you’ll be spending more money on epoxy coating until the installation is complete. Additionally, the cost of renting wet and dry vacuums, fans, and dehumidifiers you’ll need to successfully install the flooring only adds to the installation bill. By leaving the installation to a professional, you know that they have all the tools required to get the job done properly the first time, saving you time on the process and money on equipment rentals.
