I wonder if stick on floor tiles would work well?

Those would be an easy install. I plan to stop by Sherwin Williams to see what they have to offer as soon as I get some time.

In my experience your local paint store may not be the best place to get info. Clerks are not well informed on industrial products like we are discussing. My guy whipped out a catalog and started to read me what he found. So I went home and consulted the web site then called the company tech guy.

I did my 3 car garage/shop when it was new with the two part epoxy, gray. Love it ! I used Merica acid to clean the concrete first then the epoxy. I used the commercial kit not the water based stuff. Easy clean up.

I wish I would have done that to my shop floor when it was new. Sigh. And welcome to ROF!

I did the same on my new garage floor back in 2000. We prepped with acid and used a two part epoxy. It looked new when wesold the place 8 years later.....except for the weld splatter trails. It did not do well with that.

We did not put any traction/anti slip material in ours a d it was VERY slick when wet. You want to ensure the surface has some "grip" when you do it...it's not good without!

Don I got my kits from Home Depot. About 150 for one kit and it took two to do my shop. Also did the garage and it is hold up very well for over 4 years now. Caution: brake fluid will eatr it up and its an epoxy.

I guess this thread deserves an update. It's too cold out now to coat the floor. I spent my floor money on a new air compressor, drill press and the scrambler. I'll revisit the floor at a future time. Meanwhile, I'm having fun using the new tools.

Good Lord don't wait too long. When it gets greasy/dirty it is super hard to get it clean enough so epoxy all stick.

My mancave floor was so uneven due to a lame concrete contractor, that I had to sell the floor epoxy I’d purchased (U-Coat it) to seal the floor.
I settled on Racedeck which covered up my sorry excuse for a garage floor and have been happy with it’s look and resilience. I’d much rather have a nice shiny floor, but life ain’t Burger King.
