Not quite 4-bangers

I just poured a new garage floor, so I have a month to collect opinions on what finish to use. I got tired with losing parts to my 4-holer in the dirt!

Anyone have recommendations for what to use? I hear that garage paint ain't worth squit, but 2-part epoxy seems kinda over the top.

Any opinions??

Garage floor paint has to be tough as well as adhere to the concrete. There's nothing worse than your nice new floor paint starting to peel after a couple months and having to scrape it all off and start over...(believe me, I know!)

Spend the bucks for a top quality epoxy concrete floor paint and follow the directions to the letter.

We'll see what other responses come up here, but I might have to move this to the garage and workshop forum to get you some more info.

Check with Eastwood. I think they have a super floor covering other than paint. jd
