oil based epoxy is the only way to go... I have pics of mine up in another thread in the home improvement forum... too lazy to look right now.

A good two part will be very nice, I would say the worst part is prep though.

If you could find those pics that would be great! I'd love to see how yours turned out

I'm going to stain mine and give it a slate type look. Unless the concrete in your garage is fairly new, it's my understanding that getting the paint to stick for the longterm is a bit of crap shoot even with good prep.

so for some reason KCSR deleted my thread...




Not the best pics, but I still have sand/dirt on my floor right now from the last weather system that came in. Been too busy on the nice days to get it clean again.

i think this is pretty good advice. My concrete was brand new, and it was still a pain to acid wash/prep. The stain works well too, it probably will end up costing just as much to stain it w/ a good product.

go w/ an epoxy and don't look back. It will be more durable. you can also put a clear on it when you're done, but there is not a need. I believe that is was Buford did.

Don't buy a kit from Sherwin or Home depot, I got my shit from Benjamen Moore and it's a two part obviously. The two gallons were like $120 total, and it was enough to do my garage.
