Default Legacy Industrial Nohr-S Garage Application (pic heavy)

Hello all,

After some conversations with friends and Scotty, I decided to go with the Legacy Industrial Nohr-S system for my 723 sq ft. garage.

Here's the background on the garage and decision making process:

-House was built in August of 2014
-No sealer or topcoat was applied on the floor before moving in
-Floor has been used and parked on for the past year with no top coat
-I wanted a system that was user friendly and had a quick cure time

Here are some before pictures of me cleaning out the garage (I did this after work over the time-span of about a week). I basically moved a bunch of stuff into my house in certain room, some stuff I stored in my neighbors garage, and some was put out side under my 10x10 pop up.






Once I had the garage cleared out, I rented a floor buffer with a diamabrush attachment and it took me about 8 hours to do the floor to my satisfaction. I knew that prep was VITAL for a good bond, so I made 4-7 passes in some spots with the buffer.




Before





After

Needed everything off the floor, so I went ahead and had a neighbor help me build a tire rack for my race tires




I had a friend come in town for the weekend who had done a 2 part epoxy floor before and he was a HUGE help to the operation. Friday night we filled in the rest of cracks with sealant and basically did a final prep of the floor to get up bright and early on Saturday to start.



Now the fun stuff.....

We started around 8:00 am Saturday morning.....

First coat:









Second coat (Nohr-S with pigment) with flakes (since the Nohr-S dries so quickly, we basically went square by square and after each coat we would flake.

3rd coat (Nohr-S only - no pigment)

We did a 3rd coat (2 gallons over 723 sq ft, and had enough left over to do a 4th coat in some of the high traffic areas)





Final coat down (around 8:30 pm):







Some more random shots throughout the project:

Here you can see the soft skid mixed in with the clear:

Side note: I did not do or want a full broadcast and got a 10 lb bucket and only used probably 2-3 pounds....FYI for anyone doing this going forward:



The morning after....finally got most of my driveway back:



Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone and already started painting the walls:



And got my workbench started for the install:




Before:



After:



Thanks to Scotty for all his quick responses and support through the process. My Nohr-S got delivered on Friday...the same day all the new Iphones 6S's were getting delivered, so I didn't get my delivery until 8:30 on Friday night....let's just say I was biting my fingernails a little....but all worked out.


Feel free to ask any questions and I'll do my best to answer.

Nice write-up Kale! Panoramas offer a good perceptive too. Looks great

What did the price end up being roughly (start to finish)?

Thanks Always a fan of a thorough write up

The kit was around $1500 (for my sq. footage YMMV - keep in mind, mine is almost a 4 car garage) and then about $150 for crack sealant/misc. items. If you were to hire someone to everything, you're at about $6/sq ft. So you save quite a bit doing all the grunt work yourself.

Looks good, We have a very similar mix on our shop floors and it hides everything which is very nice. It also hides bolts/nuts if you loose the endless struggle with gravity while working on a car. Best advice, is simply do not drop things on the floor!

Looks good though man! I need to do some work on my garage at my place. However, I think I might just erect a new structure for my car addiction.

Few updates on the garage:

Spent most of the weekend getting the walls painted and a few cabinets hung. Will try and get some better pictures this week once I have everything more put together.....it's slowly coming together and I'm pretty happy with it.

Nice! Looks good Kale. I'm sure Bill will post in here though: "Why isn't your ceiling finished yet?"

Tis one thing that is great about Bill's garage, well-insulated. It's like a sauna in there! Kale 1, Bill 0.5
