If you live, breathe, and bleed the need to work on cars or trucks as I do, weekends are generally filled with hobby-related activities like restoring trucks. My wife and I recently bought a house that was built in the ’70s, and we had immediate plans to restore a few areas, including the garage. Our experience rebuilding trucks definitely translates to home improvement skills, but there’s nothing like trial and error to achieve your goals.
As a full-time automotive journalist, I’ve learned that having space to work in and out of the office is important. That space also needs to have some style as it will inevitably be on camera at some point. So, when it came time to clean and coat our garage floor, we knew that doing it right the first time was important. After a few phone calls and emails, we realized this is a pretty expensive process when you pay a professional, so we had to improvise.
KBS Coatings has proven itself time and time again on many of our truck projects. The company’s thick, high-quality coatings protect and seal metal surfaces like no other, but do they work on concrete? We learned that using the KBS Rust Seal and KBS Maxx topcoat is the trick to a total seal. A quick call to the tech service line was extremely helpful and gave us the confidence to move forward using the company’s sealer and UV topcoat. Gray, white, and black flecks were generously tossed on the topcoat, and we were done!
The product works, the price was within budget, and we did it ourselves. Weekend projects do not get much better than that! Follow along as we upgrade our garage floor!
