Epoxy concrete floor paint

This has been recommended by several members for outdoor concrete porch floor.
The price differs quite a bit. Would the cheapest (Home Despot) be greatly inferior to the higher-priced ones?

This may all be moot, as HD says it cannot ship to CA. Anybody bought it here?
I might have to hire a mule to bring it in from another state!!!

Got a recycling center that takes in unused paint? I got free primer and spray Rustoleum yesterday for a small job...saved about $15. They had shellac, lots of exterior wood stain, lots of interior latex.

Your link was bad for me. The ones that are good are true two part epoxy's . They will have two cans of material that has to be mixed. Anything form a 4:1 to a 2:1 ratio depending on the formulation and hardening rate. Pra ctically all of them are also formulations from base provided by big chemic al companies like dupont. So there is not a lot of quality difference betw een brands. Pay close attention to the pot time as you have to finish in t hat time. Cold slows the hardening so it's easier to get it done in winter but you have to wait longer before using the surface. Lowes and Home Depo t both sell in the stores. Don't know if that's a problem in California or not though.

Exactly what I would have said.
