Re: Garage floor coating
I did my floor, but I didn't want to worry about having to be extra careful while I was working. So I used a Rust-Oleum floor paint as it was called. I topped it with a clear coat that was recommended on the can or website. The main reason I went with something cheaper than epoxy, was so that as I worked in my shop, if I messed up a spot, I could take a section of the floor, sand it, and recoat it without worry, or cost. I was worried about messing up a spot of epoxy, and having a bad spot that looked off if I repaired it. Seems to be working good for now, about 3 years in. And I was spot on, I have a few spots that I've hurt, but my shop is a 100% work shop. Welding, grinding, painting, car cleaning, chemicals, ect....It's not perfect, but at the time I did it, I had my daughters graduation party in my shop, so it looked pretty spiffy during that. Prior to painting the floor, it was about 12 different colors from overspray done by the previous owner.
