How to Paint a Concrete Garage Floor: Video Instructions

We have prepared a series of short videos, posted on YouTube, that show each of the major steps involved in preparing the floor and in applying epoxy paint to it.

The videos feature Durall's president, Harvey Chichester, a master with over 40 years of experience in applying coatings to surfaces of all types.

These videos are not set in a studio. They do not demonstrate how to paint an artificially pristine surface selected for showmanship. These instructions take you through the entire process of painting an existing two-car garage with all the normal wear and tear from 30 years of use. That is, Harvey shows you how to paint your garage floor.

Here are links to the 23 videos in the series.
