Transforming a Garage

June 2nd, 2023

If you are working on redecorating a garage, there’s a lot to think about in terms of coatings. Garage doors, walls and floors require a specific paint system in order to achieve the perfect finish and can have a completely transformative effect! Here’s your full guide to garages:

Garage Doors

Hammerite Garage Door Paint has been specially formulated for metal and wooden garage doors. It is a tough, durable, and high gloss finish that reduces runs when applied to vertical surfaces. It is also highly resistant to flaking and discolouration and is available in six different colours. Ensure the door is primed before applying Hammerite Garage Door Paint for the best finish.

For an all-in-one product, multi-surface paints are the most convenient as they are a combined basecoat and topcoat. Standard multi-surface paints only require two coats of product, compared to more traditional coating systems of one coat of primer, followed by two coats to topcoat. Some examples of Multi-Surface Paints are Zinsser AllCoatSadolin Superdec Satin and Bradite One Can which can all be used on external doors and available in a wide range of colours.

Garage Walls

If your walls are made from breeze block or brick, there are a range of masonry paints you can choose from that will help protect the walls from the elements. If your garage walls have been plaster boarded or skimmed you can use any coating that is suitable for interior walls.

Garage Floors:

If your garage floor is concrete, you will need to look into a specialist floor coating. Here are some frequently asked questions about concrete flooring to help you get started:
