Completing your garage floor adjustment for epoxy.
Once you have the concrete cleaned, the next step would be to conduct repairs to the garage floor where desired. Do not use a latex crack fix product when applying a garage floor coating.
Latex products are soft relative to the concrete and the epoxy. Also, latex fixing products will shrink due to aging and can create a depression underneath the floor coating that can highlight the adjustments . Lastly, most coatings will not adhere well to latex.
If you are opting for the seamless floor view and you want to fill in your contraction joints, now is the time to do that.
Remember that when making crack repairments or going for the seamless look, it is very important to make sure that the surface of the influenced areas of the garage floor are smooth and flat. If not, the mended areas and seams can telegraph through the coating and reveal themselves. The best way to do this is to grind these areas after the adjustments have cured in order to create a smooth and even transition that will not show through.
If you have done extensive reconstructions, one tip is to go heavy with the color flakes if you are opting for that look. The color flakes do a good job of hiding smaller imperfections in the concrete.
