When it comes to garage floor coating, not all systems are created equal. Inferior systems are not only less attractive and not as durable as higher quality products, but they also are prone to an issue known as hot tire pick-up.

What is Hot Tire Pick-Up?

When you drive your car, your tires will begin to heat up. Once you’ve returned home and parked your car in the garage, the heat from your tires transfers to your flooring. As your tires cool down they contract, causing a grab and pull effect on your epoxy coating. Without high-quality products and proper installation, this will result in large chunks of epoxy being stripped directly from the concrete.

How do I Avoid Hot Tire Pick-Up?

The good news is that when you choose a reputable dealer, like ETEK Custom Coatings, you receive the highest quality products with expert installation to prevent things like epoxy stripping from occurring. We take several measures to ensure your concrete coating lasts a lifetime, including:
