No...but have you priced it?

Measure your garage floor, then look at their recommended coverage rate. Determine how much you'll need to buy, and don't forget to include the cost of the chemical floor cleaning PRIOR to putting the Rustoleum epoxy paint down....then come back & tell us how much it would all cost... ...... BIG OUCH!!!!!

For that kind of $$, I'll live with my stained, raw concrete.... Actually, I'm just REAL happy to even have a concrete floor - 'cause over the years, I've done more than my share of wrenchin' laying on a rug in the dirt! (That may be the reason why I'd rather spend my few, budgeted 'hotrod dollars' on parts instead.....)

BUT - if you do decide to get it - let us know how you like it once it's down!

Peace........... Ryan

Some of those coatings are pretty.... but when something gets spilled on them, they are slicker than catsh*t on a linoleum floor! That non-porus slickness is what makes them easier to clean... and bust your butt on!

FWIW, Here is a link to a place that sells industrial grade floor coatings. Many of our clients use similar products with excellent results.

http://www.garonproducts.com/

These are the coatings you will find in manufacturing sites and warehouses - places where floor life and traction are both important.

These are not cheap, but when properly applied, these should last a long time and perform well.

P.S. This costs too much for me, but some people take these things very seriously!

I get plywood free from work so I lined my garage with it. Put one layer down one direction and the second layer is screwed to the first with 1 1/4 inch screws so if one needs to be replaced it is easy.

I have seen it today in a Home Depot and it sells for $98.00 cdn. Covers 230 sq. ft. and comes also with the cleaner. The paint itself is a two part mixture. On the box it says that they have to be mixed one hour prior to painting.

I can't say I've ever seen a garage with a "parquet" floor before... It looks GREAT!!

The floor in my garage has never had oil in the bare concrete. Several years ago, I used a urethane 2 stage paint called Amer Flint, at that time a top quality automotive paint. It lasted several years. The next time, over 10 years later, used another 2 stage paint by Nason. So-so, but not bad for the price. In a few weeks hope to be without a car in garage for remainder of summer, so am planning another repaint. This time am going to look for another 2 stage paint but in top quality. With the Amer Flint was able to wipe paint spills with lacquer thinner. For prep, I wash down with diluted Muriatic acid, follower by a good rinse, and then a strong degreaser detergent like Formula 8. Nice thing about these paints, you can get any color matched. In a one car garage, can get away with 5 qts. The price is less than $100. Application is with roller.
