Dave that's fine but don't get hung up on the "epoxy" type sealers/paint, I have seen many garage sealed with a penetrating sealer then painted with a compatible paint and it holds up great. I have seen most "epoxy" type paints fail but I believe that most were due to the prep not so much the product. Again if you can check with the concrete supplier,or local masonry supplier and get their recommendations they will know what is best. Products change after time so maybe there are newer types out there. I wish you the best of luck!!

Do not put the clear sealer on it !!! Prep and clean it very good let it set for a day . Then use the two part opoxy whatever color you like, then after it is on give it two days before you have any traffic on it . Then use it as desired. I will get you the name or company that I used on my shop floor for you and post it. the opoxy has been on the floor for about 8 years now and is chemical resistant. Don't use oil dry to clean spills with use the pig matt or the oil obsobent pads , mope bucket simple green and thats how you clean it . I hope this helps Smile

Thanks again. I believe you. Your not trying to sell me something like them. I just need to find a different company. Been through about ten so far. I just wanted a regular flat floor. I do like the painted look but hate pealing. 9,000 for good paint sucks though

Thats crazy ! Me and my son did mine in December when it was cold that year and it isn't pealing anywhere. I also did my Garage floor for my wife in light tan with sprinkles that year. I got the stuff at lowes . I don't know if they still carry that brand or not I will check on that too.

Dave, we use this company at my work to do our floors.
I don't know the cost but the finished product is good.

Mine is 3000 as well and that stuff must have gone up a lot in 8 years now that i think about it . I think it cost me 1500 or maybe 1800 bucks to do mine.
