My new garage is almost done and I want the brand new concrete floor coated before either of the following occurs: a)winter arrives or b) I have to change oil/tranny fluid/hydro fluid/etc and do an Exon Valdez all over the floor. No, Iím not going to hire it done. Got bids already, lowest is about $3 billion and would require a new mortgage. Oh, and as a plus, the earliest anyone can do it is December/January so thatís a no itís a DIY or bust. For background, the garage is 24◊30. I do a lot of mechanical stuff epoxy flooring Utah, outboards, small engines, ag equipment, aircraft engines (non-turbine only now due to neighborhood Karenís constant b!tching about test-runs) , etc. Lots of fluid spills and inevitable. Interested in hearing from those of you who have done it yourself. What product did you use and how is it holding up? I did the Rustoleum stuff on my parentís last 2 garages. I would not have done that product, but thatís what dad wanted to do/pay for. My impressions are that itís okay for the cost and if you donít mind redoing parts of it every few years. I wonít be going with this for my garage. Have heard good things about Epoxy-Coat products. Anyone done this brand and how many mils did you do? Major concern with this one is how slippery is it when done? Other DIY products/systems you recommend? I gotta get on this quick-like. Thanks guys as usual for all the advice.
