Southern Hard Coat epoxy coated our garage floor at our house. The work was completed as scheduled and it looks great. I have had home improvements done by subs in the past and in most cases cleanup is a major issue, but not with Southern Hard Coat. The guys did a great job in final cleanup and left the area better than they found it. I would recommend Southern Hard Coats’ work to anyone that is considering having a surface epoxy coated. It finishes off the garage, makes it easy to clean the floor and adds value to the home. Again, thanks to the crew at Southern Hard Coat.

Sam Strickland, the owner of Southern Hard Coat, is awesome.  My husband and I were so very pleased with the repair he did on our garage floor.  We found Sam to be extremely knowledgeable, courteous and thorough.  I only wish we had used him to put in our garage floor in the first place.  You can’t go wrong using this company!

Around June of this year, I was lucky enough to find the name and phone number of Southern Hard Coat.  Sam Strickland, the owner, is absolutely great to work with. Very knowledgeable, informative and easy to work with. With the purchase of my new house, I knew that I wanted an epoxy finish but always worried about the cost and maintenance. Southern Hard Coat provides fair pricing and great tips for maintenance – not to mention the floor looks terrific!!!  Throughout the process, Sam kept me informed on each step and even provided pictures. He was very punctual and dedicated to finish the job. There’s no mistake I would recommend them to anyone who asked.

Sam and the crew at Southern Hard Coat did an amazing job.  I was debating between floor tiles or epoxy and so glad I chose epoxy.  From start to finish, Southern Hard Coat was very professional, efficient, and paid great attention to detail.  My garage flooring now looks 100 time better.  I would definitely recommend them!


John C – Round Rock, TX 09-02-18 –  (YELP)

Sam and Southern Hard Coat were recommended to us prior to moving into our new home and we are so glad that we pursued working with him. We could not be more pleased with the work he and his crew did. They were very meticulous in their craft and our floor turned out amazing. He explained step by step the process and stuck very true to the plan. He communicated the various steps needed to accomplish the fabulous results we received. We could not be more happier with how our floors turned out. Southern Hard Coat is a truly well run business and takes extreme pride in their work. I would highly recommend them to everyone!!!

Had my back patio and front porch epoxied about 3 months now with no problems. These guys did a great job. I would recommend them to others.

Working with Sam at Southern Hard Coat was a great experience. He was very responsive to communication, punctual, and completed the work just as promised for a reasonable price. Our porch looks so much better and will be easier to clean.

Sam was SENSATIONAL. He is trustworthy. He is skilled, and he is all around a nice guy. He wasn’t trying to sell me on things I didn’t need. He listened to what I said, to what I wanted, and to the way I use the space, and he gave me his opinions. No pushing of more expensive options, no trying to sway me. He just listened to what I wanted, and Presto Magic, he made it happen. His work from start to finish was above and beyond. I had planned this garage floor redo for a surprise for my husband. Sam was great in the stealth planning and execution of the project. He even went and met with his supplier to get me a specific color flake mixture. He was on time, worked outside of normal hours to accommodate me, and delivered a fantastic final product. I couldn’t be happier with the over all experience, the final product, or the price for services rendered. I would 100% recommend this company for any future projects, and actually, I already have recommended them to a couple people this weekend while showing off my new floor. You WILL NOT be disappointed if you choose to go with Sam.

My experience with Southern Hard Coat was great.  Sam Strickland communicated often, was punctual and did excellent work. Family owned business that takes pride in doing the job right.


Curt W – Leander, TX  2-20-19  –  (YELP)

We received a referral for Southern Hard Coat from a neighbor and could not be happier with the results.  We received a very thorough explanation of the process as well as a wide array of options from which to choose.  The finished product is beautiful and was completed on time and well within our budget.  We absolutely agree that you cannot go wrong with this company!  This family-owned business does the job right.

Just had Sam and his team out to do my garage. Found them after they had done an old neighbors garage and saw the quality. It took them a weekend to take care of my garage even with rain the morning before they started work, and they were communicative, prompt, responsive, professional, and friendly. Above all else though the garage looks great! I couldn’t be happier with the whole process! Thank you Sam and team!

We had our garage done by SHC earlier this year and could not be more pleased. It was a new move, so I needed it done in a tight window, these guys nailed it. Strong recommend.

Great company to work with. Professional, timely and properly priced. Would recommend any day!


Wilson L. – Cedar Park, TX 7-09-19 (Google)

Sam and his team did an excellent job on my garage floor. Everything from the initial phone call to the completed project was top-notch and professional. Highly recommended!


Wes S. – Austin Park, TX 10-09-19 (YELP)

My sweetie got all dolled up!  (By sweetie I mean garage floor of course, my domain).

I’m so pleased with how well my garage floor remodel ended up. A garage should be a mans crowning jewel, complete with TV and work bench with beer fridge. Mine had sadly become a quarantined room that no one was even allowed to see! Let alone visit in. In came Sam and his boys for the rescue. From the moment I reached out to Sam the communication and explanation was top of the mark. When it came time to roll the sleeves up and get the work done I wasn’t surprised that too went flawlessly. If you think for one second you can just go grab some do it yourself materials at Home Depot to prep and coat your garage floor FORGET IT! The equipment Sam is equipped with to prep the floors is extensive. I was shocked by how much sanding and prep work went in before he got to the coating. It requires expensive specialty tools that Sam has invested in to make sure the finished product looks amazing. He is very knowledgeable about the products he uses and has endless options to fit whatever it is you need.

I’m really looking forward to finishing up this makeover with painting my garage walls and adding the work bench I’ve longed for since owning this home. Now that these floors look amazing it’s go time. My garage will soon be integrated as a regular part of daily life. A match made in heaven, a man (or lady of course) and his (or her 🙂 garage …

Call Sam!

Sam (And his daughter lol) were ALWAYS perfect in their approach to this craft. I cannot stress enough how awesome our home looks now. I will NOT hesitate in referring more business his way. I did a ton of research on coating companies in the area and saw a lot of finished work. After doing all the work, I went with Southern Hard Coat and strongly advise anyone thinking about doing this to go with Sam. He’s the best. Thank you again!


Lindsay D. – Austin, TX  06-07-20 (YELP)

We worked with Sam to finish our garage floors and were extremely impressed. It’s difficult to find someone that does things the right way and with the highest of quality and Sam did just that. The communication, response time, explanation, etc were all top notch as well. We are thrilled with the final results and would recommend him to anyone.
