Can anyone suggest a strong (easy to wash) coating for a cement garage floor? It did look nice & smooth until it started cracking like crazy, Any ideas?

I plan on doing this too, once my cars are at the body shop. There are lots of different coatings out there, but I want to find out what a dealership I used to work at used. You could drop ANYTHING on it and it would just wipe up. I'm pretty sure it was an epoxy.

If anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear it too.

I like the picture of the Rustoleum floors in the magazine ads.

They put some stuff down at the KRAFT plant I'm currently working in called "STONHARD". It is just like the stuff that was in the dealership shop I worked in. It's tougher than nails and seals very well. It has a textured finish (non slip) but is easy to clean. Kraft uses it for these reasons, and they have to keep bacteria and whatnot out of the plant. The only color I've ever seen it in is a bluish gray. Hope that helps.

I used to work at a Sherwin Williams store and we sold a two part epoxy coating used to coat concrete floors, first you clean/etch the concrete w/ diluted muriatic acid which they also sell. They claimed you could park a car on it and turn the tires back and forth without it peeling up. It came it gallon cans, so you end up with 2 gallons of the stuff. Give Sherwin Williams a call and I'm sure they can give you the details.

We did that at my dad's garage about 10 years ago. It worked exactly as advertised. The muriatic acid etch is to give the paint some texture to stick to and otherwise clean off the floor of any contaminants.

The S-W epoxi paint worked great, lasted forever and put up with a lot of abuse and cleaned up easy too.

Hello Sig! You know there's a car show Saturday over here at Pineland Mall? Yes, I just did the floor in the Valspar epoxy from Lowes. The price is right and it seems great so far.
