Thinking about painting my garage floor this summer.
By paint I mean any of the floor coverings that are available i.e epoxies, latex, acrylics etc.
I'm looking for a decent concrete seal with a non slip surface, any recommendations?

People say I don't know Jack Sh1t; but I do, he lives next door.

If you want results that last and don't start lifting, chipping, flaking etc within a few months I think the 2 part epoxies are the only way to go. You can also add grit components into the mix to make a non-slip texture in critical areas if required. Expensive but effective.

My brother has just built a workshop / bike garage at his new house and done just this, I will ask him what he used.

So, here you go, this is what my brother used:" rel="nofollow -

His comment is:

'It's good stuff but you MUST prep the floor correctly, you must also ensure temperature is 10 degrees minimum when you paint and during curing.'

It's been down about fifteen months and is holding up well. A couple of small patches have lifted but he thinks that was down to prep. They have four bikes between them that get moved around and he is in it most days as his lathe etc is in there.

I had the factory floor done at my old job in a resin coating, it’s been down for 10 years now and apart from a few small repairs it still looks good and it’s in a manufacturing environment. The resin was supplied by remmers and professionally applied, worth looking at getting the floor ground and then clear sealed as you get a great effect with the aggregate in it.

I bet that cost more than a pack of crisps!
