How to prepare garage floor for epoxy?

Vac used to control dust
Weight added for better grinding
Coating removal is not fast or fun but neccessary
How do I prepare my garage floor for coatings? How do I remove paint from my concrete floor?
Where do I rent a diamond grinder? What diamond grinder do I rent?

These are the questions we hear everyday from woeful DIY clients looking to make the home garage into a GARAGE MAHAL, MAN CAVE, BROMANSION, etc....

If you have floor coatings on your floor your best bet is to rent a small walk behind diamond grinding machine. The smaller machine (single head) is good for around 1000 sq ft.

If you have greater than 1000 sq ft consider a dual head machine for added efficiency and power.

The machine pictured is made by Edco and is very popular at rental houses. Rents for 200-250.00 per day. Edco recommends the strip-serts for coating removal and dyma-serts for concrete grinding.
