I applied this in my garage and storage shed. I had about 485 sqft to cover and the kit just barely made it. Application is easy. As everyone says, it's all in the prep. The house is brand new, but I still swept, used a leaf blower, rinsed with an electric pressure washer, etched, rinsed again, and blew down again after it all dried. Even with a new slab, the acid really pulled up a lot of dirt. I put about 6 hours total into the whole process. The kit says you only need one coating, but there are a few spots where the paint didn't cover as well. The paint flakes hide it pretty well, and I don't think bad enough to make it worth buying an extra kit for a second coating.
My tips... a leaf blower, electric pressure washer, and squeegee are a big help with this. And when applying the flakes, throw them high and far to get them to spread evenly.

In the past, I have used other epoxy garage floor paints/coatings. Most took 2 coats (2 days) and created twice the amount of trash. I was able to easily wash off the paint pan, roller, and a few other items with just water. Too easy!
Epoxyshield did cover more square footage than promised. I bought the 2 1/2 plus a 1 car kit to cover 750SF. There was over a quart left over. Nice tape edge too.
As far as the color chips or sprinkles, I have no idea as to how to spread them evenly.
Hint: After the floor is prepped, take off your shoes and paint in a pair of old socks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by TheConstantOutsider The garage I've always dreamed of!
I have always wanted a professional looking garage floor finish because I spend a lot of time in my man-cave garage. Finally, I saw this product at a reasonable price. I am thrilled with the final result! It is crucial to follow the directions to a "T" if you want the final result to look like an auto dealer showroom floor, which is what I ended up with. If you have an uneven or varying texture of your concrete floor, with some areas smooth and other areas a bit rough, you may find that a second application may be necessary to achieve a consistent color throughout, but believe me, it's worth it! And customer support with my questions and concerns was fantastic! Everyone who visits my home now comments on that garage floor with amazement! :>) I'm very happy.

I purchased this product because the house I bought had oil stains and the garage floor looked unbearable. At first I was hesitant to apply an epoxy coating to my garage floor, but also didn't want to pay for it to be professionally done. The instructions are straight forward and I used Behr 990 degreaser and cleaner. I live in Omaha and it's pretty humid here, so I left a little extra time for the concrete to dry before applying. I couldn't be more pleased with the result and I feel this will pay for itself several times over when I sell this house. Attached are before and after photos. Also, be liberal with the flakes, the end product is slippery and I bought an extra precautionary pack but didn't use it.

This is an inexpensive way to make a dramatic impact. I've use this once before - about 10 years ago in my last house and decided to use in my new home. As is expected - prep is critical. I used a grinder to remove any stains and residues from construction, Rustoleum Epoxy Crack Sealer, and the included acid wash. Then rinsed the floor twice. I also used a blow torch to evaporate any remaining water from the concrete before applying. A clean and dry floor will ensure it bonds as designed. Itâs critical that you apply evenly across the floor. If you prep right and apply correctly it will last for-ever. I also added a coat of the Epoxy Clear - itâs the final touch and worth the extra money.
