Class of 2000!
Cypress Creek High School!
Hi my name is Donald Eugene Sanderson Jr and I was born and raised right here in Houston Texas USA! I installed my first garage floor 16 years ago (in 2003) but I'm still excited about garage floors!
I fell in love with epoxy while being taught the science of resinous two part cast molds in my 8th grade shop class while at Bleyl Junior High School in Northwest Houston in the year 1996. While the other 8th grade kids were making wooden pens on a lathe, and go-karts, I chose to make molds out of two part epoxy, it was love at first mold! 8 years later in 2003 I finally got that opportunity to mold epoxy onto a garage floor. I had been dreaming of this day ever since Junior High School. The Home Depot had just begun to sell garage flooring box kits and a friend of mine who owned a dry cleaners on Louetta Road in NW Houston paid me to install his floor with a Rustoleum Garage Flooring box kit. My first floor in 2003 was a huge success! His customers loved his new floors so much that they soon began to ask for my phone number! I struck dozens of deals because of that floors location! So after building some experience on several garage floors and acquiring the technique of throwing the chips into the floor in a uniform manner I stuck a sign on the side of Louetta Road in NW Houston that said Houston Garage Floors with my phone number on it, and I was in business!
Eventually we moved up to Sherwin Williams commercial grade floor coatings (the very best) and then we perfected and "packaged" the garage floor after years of hands on experience!
"We didn't invent the garage floor, we just packaged it!" TM
Let me tell you what to expect when you choose Houston Garage Floors:
1. First of all: love bugs. That's right, love bugs are naturally attracted to the smell of floor coatings and will be observing our work from above. They are of no harm, the nature of these coatings attracts those sort of things. When you call or email you will speak to my mother Patty (we are a family business) she handles the contract, deposit, and scheduling so that I can be at your garage floor!
2. The first thing that we will do upon our arrival for installation is text you to let you know our eta. When we arrive we will place a giant 20 ft by 10 ft tarp over your driveway in front of your garage so that we do not spill anything on your driveway. We will then tape the door seal to your house shut from the inside of the garage to mitigate the smell of the coatings, you can lock the door that enters your home from the inside of your garage because we will never ask to enter your home. After we tape the edges of your lower walls, cabinets, or baseboards we will then start the grinding process. After the grinding is completed we will fill cracks and holes (Heavy Chip Floors only) and then we apply the first coat. We will keep you updated with text messages when we come and go for lunch or brakes between the following coats. Our floors are usually completed in one day and can be driven on in 8 hours when choosing the Heavy Chip Package. We will keep you updated with text messages when we come and go for brakes and lunch. We will text you before we finish which is usually 4-7pm the same day.
Thank YOU Houston!

2003 - Installed my first garage floor and began installing garage floors professionally!
2006-2007 - Tallil, Iraq - I went to Southern Iraq as a Civilian Contractor with the US Department of Defense thru a company called KBR assigned to live with and assist the US Air Force as a Project Controls Cost Specialist tracking and billing our cost of the war (Logistics & Civilian Augmentation Services, aka LOGCAP) in the middle of the Iraq desert from an 18 wheeler construction trailer alongside the Air Force runway in the 130 degree heat with our US Veterans while rockets and mortars flew over head, landed in view, hit our vehicles, and sent shrapnel into our construction trailers on sometimes an hourly, daily, weekly, or bi-monthly basis. Unfortunately the Sodium Dichromate (aka Round Up Pesticide or Agent Orange) that we were also there to clean up was airborne and it took a tole on my body and burned a hole in my nose and significantly damaged the median nerves in my arms making them inoperable after my first 10 months of working at the base. I was flown back to Houston Texas for 5 surgeries at the former Doctor Brown Hand Center for nerve damage in my inner arms which left massive scars and tissue loss.
2008 - Baghdad, Iraq - As soon as I was healed up from 6 months of surgeries and rehab I went back to Iraq with KBR to help the US Army in Baghdad International Airport. I wanted to help but I needed something to do that did not require signing time sheets, cost reports, purchase orders, sub contracts, and typing on the computer all day, my hands were not capable of doing that again immediately after 5 surgeries. So I flew to Baghdad and stayed at Camp Victory on the US Army Base and drove down Airport Highway to Baghdad Airport (a 40 minute drive) daily where I worked as an Operations Specialist escorting our Service Contractors in the Airport. Driving down the streets of Baghdad was the most exciting thing I have ever done! I significantly herniated two disks in my spine while working at Baghdad Airport and I was flown back to Houston for 2 weeks of back and neck rehabilitation.
2009-2010 - I wanted to learn more about concrete so I went to Foreman Arkansas to help rebuild the Ashgrove Cement Plant with PCL Industrial Construction as a Project Controls Cost Engineer. (I installed garage floors on the weekends.)
2010 - Returned to Houston to continue my dream of growing Houston Garage Floors and helping the Widows of US Veterans at the same time! We donate $25 to a US Veterans Widow on every floor!
Let's Be a US Veterans Widows Hero!
