Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 8691 This product does great and is worth the effort
If you don't mind all of the effort and the time it takes to patch cracks, scrub, clean and etch you will be rewarded with a beautiful garage floor. Mine stretched out over a month of part time work. After the floor is painted you need to wait 96 before driving on it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pierce Don't walk by this product "RUN"
If looks is what your after this is your product if durability is what your after look else where. Went with the pro vesion. Had a previous coating on my floor and spend 2 months removing the old coating with a diama blade and sander got about 80% down to bare concrete the instructions say you just need to roughen up the old surface if it is not peeling.But I wanted to the best I could. HA!!! my garage is1200sf and after following the directions given, I appied the new floor, BEAUTIFUL waited two weeks to park on it even though it said 4 days. Yep you guess it tire peel after one use. Called the company and was told with a previous coating it need to be taken down 2-3 mils into the concrete. That would have been a good one for the instructions don't ya think. So 2 months and $1000. later I have a beuatiful floor that I already had to repair and I have to park in carpet squares. Very Disappointed with Rustolium as they where less than willing to help but very fast to blame. Use at your own risk Good luck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Check2 This product rocks!
I waited 8 weeks to leave review so I would have time to give honest review. I knew I needed tough product since my garage gets extra abuse. We own a 67 camaro that has had 4 engines changed so I was really worried about adhering issues. I cleaned better than most people FOR SURE but it was really the most important step. I scrubed with pressure washer and tsp,scrub brush and tsp,over,over,over...... then with muriatic acid until garage looked clean concentrating on spots where camaro sits since it likes to mark its territory.We let garage dry overnight and started painting early morning.I bought roller and pan for each box since i had read it starts to get sticky fast. The directions said it covered 3 to 4 hundred sq.ft. but since i paint lots i knew not to expect it but to cover about half my garage a box so i bought 2 boxes. 22x22 2 car garage and 2 boxes were perfect. We did not drive on it for 7 days to give time to cure...we also used clear coat which we applied 24 hours after paint. We havent had any problems.I even burned tires on camaro and pulled in garage...no hot tire pickup. It looks great.I also added extra specs because of reviews i had read that said be careful that you sprinkle evenly so you would have enough so started out with more and it is kinda hard to keep them even but really didnt show uneveness much. Everyone thinks it looks professionally done!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by martymain This product should not scare anyone! It is easy to apply!
I am a 65 year-old grandmother who has applied this product to 3 garages so far! It is fun and easy, including the prep work! The secret is to fix all cracks in the concrete beforehand and make sure that you allow plenty of time for the floor to dry before applying the epoxy.
Another good hint is to apply when the temperature is just right-read the instructions which are included in the box.
One application was done 3 weeks ago, over a previously-done floor and it turned out perfectly. Yesterday I did our second garage, which had never been painted, and I am waiting for it to dry one more day before I walk on it. I will wait one more week before I drive our cars into this large garage. Don't be afraid; if I can do it, anyone can!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EEJim After 7 years
I just wanted consumers to know that I used this product in our garage 7 years ago and have not one compliant...
It is one tough floor finish. No blemishes or peeling has occurred. I did prep the new laid concrete floor just as instructed, so be sure to do a good job. Once the prep work is done the painting went easy. I worked quickly because of the dry time and let it cure for about 4 days.
One kit was just enough to complete a two car garage. I had just enough left over to do the concrete step out where my ac unit is (5'x10'). Good luck and enjoy the finished product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Understated Coverage Area
Be careful because the coverage area is understated on this kit. I came up about 75 sq. ft. short and had to purchase another complete kit. The finish was also uneven because it absorbed into the concrete differently in some areas. My only option was to apply a second coat on top of it, but because it was longer than 5 days between coats, I had to sand the entire first coat with 60 grit sandpaper before applying the second coat. What a pain!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nathan So far so good
Just bought a new house and decided to seal the floor. Process was pretty painless, but I'd recommend having someone help you apply it and make sure you are covering spots multiple times for even coats. I can clearly see spots I didn't hit as thickly as I should have.
Also don't recommend using the silly flakes as they seem to rub off now.
I will likely be doing a clear coat over top of this to keep the colored flakes from rubbing off. Don't add the flakes if you want a "clean" garage.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rich17990 Product did not last one NewEngland Winter.
The surface was great until the winter came. The finish began to peel near the garage door opening where there is lot of water and melting snow. The remainder of the garage looks fine. The coating was done to the specification. Took over two days to prepare the surface. Now there is no way to patch the areas where the concrete is exposed.
I cannot remove the epoxy and I would never use this product again. I would been of using a good floor paint that I could repaint.
