They look amazing.  I wish I had the coin to get mine done.  The floor needs some repair work, too.

Man, am I jealous! 

The floor looks really good, it cleans up the whole look of the garage.

Thanks guys, we went with this coloring called "granite" . it has some yellow in it that mactchs the paint and lots of grey for our car/truck. 

They place I used offers lifetime warranty and they are kind of pricey...but as usual, I worked a deal that was fair for a full chip floor with 2 coats of poly on top.   it is really thick.   We are just now able to walk on it and we have pending storms rolling in around 2-7 am so he told me if I had to i could park in there if the weather gets sketchy.  There are a few places I am not happy with, they actually scrape and sand the floors with a buffer before puttin gon the clear and you can really tell where they didn't hit it in the corners.   oh well...most of the corners and perimeter will be covered with cabinets and stuff.   Wife helped me lay up the wall cove.   It wasn't too hard, but outside corners are hard...inside corners are easier, we did an ok job...it doesn't look perfect but there was nothing there and it looks more finished. 

Ok back to planning and watching weather.     Want to try and move in tomorrow afternoon...wife is tired of the kitchen and wash room all full with garage stuff.   Our patio is also packed with stuff.

I would absolutely kill to have that kind of floor in my garage. I wonder how well it holds up to road salt though.

The Poly holds up really well. It’s one of the first questions I asked.

My guess is amazing.  I know how our epoxy coatings hold up to salt on the road itself.

Tom, I don't think Road Salt could do anything to these floors.  It is 100% solid epoxy on the ground concrete, then full chips then 2 coats of poly on top...that polly is super thick and super strong. 

They only warned me of 2 things....Transmission Fluid is bad, you want to get it up quickly...the other is Battery acid from our golf cart.  For acid, they said just add water and squeegee.   This is why we went ahead and put on the wall cove.  Add more water proof to the walls if we need to rinse the floors.
