    Lot's of good reviews of that epoxy on garagejournal.

    Just remember you can't put it down for at least a month after the pad is poured. Also, make sure they put down a vapour barrier before they pour, otherwise the concrete will pull moisture from the ground and the moisture coming up will lift the epoxy.


    Canada - just like the U.S. only we pay twice as much or get half as much.

    acid etching or staining is a better method IMO

    Acid etching is for cleaning and floor prep for a coating. Staining is great but does nothing to seal the concrete. If colour is what you're after it can also be done before the pour by having the concrete truck add colour to the mix.
    If you're staining you should follow it up with a sealer to stop the dusting and it will also make the acid stain look better. You can also roll an antislip additive in with the sealer if that's a concern.

    Have done alot of garage floors with a French Grey sealer can be sprayed on or rolled. Can pick it up at any concrete specialty shop like B.W construction products. My floor is 6yrs. now no flaking or peeling just scratches from the skis on the sled, but still holds up very well and great for cleaning up.

    CTM TKO 1002. 2 part floor epoxy. Stuff was pretty easy to put on and is crazy durable. Decent shine but not as slippery as I thought it would be when wet.

    Not in this case. They etch to give pattern and 'texture'. Then they stain, and then seal it after. It's pretty bad ass looking. I was looking at a House in Vegas while I was there, and the 5 car garage had it done. It looked more baller than anything I have ever seen.
