Floor paint is an easy answer. Etch with muratic acid first and it'll hold
just fine. I haven't used it, but when buying my paint last month I saw a
floor paint specifically for garages that is suppose to wear well even with
car tire traffic.
May I ask which brand do you use? I am setting up to epoxy 1200 sq. ft of
basment floor but cannot decide which type of epoxy and where to buy it
from. I am not willing to pull the trigger without some solid
recommendations (it would be nice to hear from anyone who has had an epoxy
coated floor for a long time - say 5 years or longer).
www.ucoatit.com (but they did not respond to my e-mail, so they are
automatically off the list due to the insult)
i used the epoxy product from home depot in my basement (by
rustoleum). they make a kit for garage and another one for basement.
if i remember correctly the garage one has an additional step for
removing oil and grease before applying, while the basement one was
just a "wash the floor first" prep.
i was very impressed with the results and it was quite easy to do.
can't vouch for the longevity, as i only did it a month or so ago, but
it seems very durable. we're using it as the floor of our new
work-out area. cost $35, cheap solution! it helps to have 2 people,
one to roll & the other to toss the (optional) confetti.
