I've been lurking here for a while, but now I have a real question. I've read about epoxy floor coatings before, but here is a specific case to consider.
I have a new garage shop floor, about 60 days since it was poured, and I'd like to coat it before it accumulates the usual tire marks/oil/grease. First question, should I wait for more concrete cure time? Second question, will a shop heater be sufficient, or do I really need to wait for summer? It gets cold up here in northern PA. No matter how much I heat the garage, the floor will still be cold.
Next set of questions, who has used what products and what do you recommend? I've seen the Rustoleum epoxy at Home Depot (which gives NO clue as to square footage covered on the packaging), in the Google group archives someone recommended Sherwin Willians floor epoxy. Any experience or opinions here?
I don't mind doing lots of prep, muriatic acid, etc., as long as it pays off in the end! I have about 800 sq ft to cover.
Also I was thinking of mixing sand in where the autos go and none where they don't, any technique or type of sand preferred? Thanks in advance.
