Hello Dkwelch!

 

My name is Christine and I work in the paint department at Home Depot. The type of paint you are going to want to use is an epoxy paint. These paints are all chemical and hot tire resistant, which is what you want for a garage. :) We sell quite a few different epoxy paints both online and in our stores.

 

Here are some tips for painting your garage floor:

 

- Make sure you clean up any and all gasoline and grease before you begin. Using a degreaser will be perfect.

- You will also want to etch the surface. This will ensure that your paint will adhere to the surface properly.

- Each epoxy paint will have their own set of instructions for applying and prep. Read the instructions thoroughly before beginning your project.

 

Please let us know if we can help with anything else!

 

Christine :)
