For your project to be successfull, you must be ready to do a good washing ,degreasing and etching of your garage floor. After that, follow instructions about temperatures and you will be fine. I was able to complete this project with no previous painting experience. Now my garage look very good.

I was hesitant in buying this product based on the various reviews. I spent 1 day cleaning the garage floor. I first swept and then vacuumed the cracks of all debris. Next I used Krud Kutter (product from Home Depot) and a hard bristle scrub brush to clean the entire garage floor. Once thoroughly scrubbed, I used our pressure washer to rinse. Day 2 I rinsed the garage floor with the garden hose to Etch. Once this process was thoroughly done, I squeegeed the floor and put 3 fans on to dry the floor. That evening, I did a few minor concrete patches. I continued to use the fans to dry the garage floor. Day 3 I rolled the Epoxy Shield and added the decorative paint chips. I again used 3 fans to dry the floor. After reading numerous articles, I found that adding a topcoat is best in preventing paint peel or hot tire pick up. I purchased the Rock-Solid Clear Topcoat from Home Depot. The Top Coat cost more than the Epoxy Shield Garage Floor Coating Kit ($149). It also states that the Top Coat will cover 200 - 250 sq. feet. My garage is 500 sq. feet. I found that I was able to use only 1 pouch to cover my entire garage floor. I waited 4 days for drying time. I have driven both cars on and off the garage floor after running errands into town and there is absolutely no paint peeling or hot tire pick up. All in all I invested $301.41. The key is to do a thorough scrub down of your garage floor and adding the topcoat. I highly recommend both products (2 GAL. 2-PART HIGH-GLOSS EPOXY GARAGE FLOOR COATING KIT AND ROCK-SOLID CLEAR TOPCOAT).

This is an easy project as long as you have all of the supplies and you do the prep. Directions are easy to follow and every step is explained clearly. There are a ton of videos online that you can watch also. I should have filled the small cracks in the floor before applying the Epoxy, but it looks good anyways. Once the floor is prepared, its time to paint one section at a time. I have a 2.5 car garage and i has just enough paint for 1 coat. I had plenty of flakes for the whole project. It looks clean and im glad i did it before i move all of my stuff in. It helps a lot on time to do it while the garage is empty. Cleaning and etching the floor helps too. I could have dispursed the flakes more evenly, but its too late now.

New garage floor this past year, cleaned and etched as per instructions, and waited 48 hrs before any foot traffic. Perfect for a month, then this morning while pulling out my car, front tire removed both the floor and the expensive epoxy clear that was also let to dry without foot traffic for several days. Hundreds invested into this floor. Not happy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MikeFromNJ Looks Great
I put a lot of effort into first degreasing my garage floor with an industrial strength cleaner and then etching it. The epoxy floor looks great and seens to be well bonded. A word of caution: it took almost a week for the garage floor to fully dry after the cleaning and etching. I am willing to bet that folks run into trouble by cutting corners and not allowing sufficient time for the floor to dry.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JNTX Need to redo the garage.
I followed the instructions to the T. I even waited a day and had fans running to dry the garage. But after a few months mine has started to peel and come off. I need to do it again but I don't want to waste the money unless I know why it peeled off. I know it works. I've helped friends to paint their garages.

I have used this product in gray both in my basement and garage. Excellent results. Following the directions and taking your time is key. I purchased extra etch to make sure my concrete would accept the paint. The prep takes longer than painting. Once you are done, stay off of it for a few days. In the garage, I added the anti-skid powder and the results we're great. In my basement, I left it shiny. Stains like oil or even cat puke do not penetrate the paint. This will give your garage a showroom look and feel, I also buy extra chips, because I like them. Be warned, I put this on thick and the 2 and 1/2 garage kit only covers a small two car garage. But I put this on thicker than normal. Good luck, I hope you like the results, the quality is excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jarod great product
This product was awesome. Some reviews left me a little worried about peeling of the floor but I can say that mine has not done that. To have good results you have to put a lot of time into the prep work. Scrub it more than recommended and make sure it's completely dry before applying epoxy. Don't walk on it during the drying time. If you follow the directions then you'll have a great floor that everyone compliments. I have now had mine 2.5 years and have not had a single issue and I believe it's because of the prep work I did. Overall it's a pretty simple DIY job and gives a great look. I am moving into a new house soon and will be reapplying.
