Garage floor resurfacing

I currently have the garage floor in the picture. Anyone have any ideas for resurfacing? I don't think the epoxy options at Home Depot or Lowes will work. Thanks.Sorry about the photo, the attachment limits on this site are pretty bad.

That is a pretty poor pic, but what I see does not look good. What are your plans for the garage, or is it just a garage?? Epoxy paints do a good job........if the surface is properly prepared. But big box products are often far from good cures. That often involves muriatic acid and other nasty things that a novice should stear clear of. Have a coating expert have look and make recommendations.

I would suggest acid etching the floor. YOu need to clean the floor very well and then do exactly as described in this video. Looks awesome, I did this to my garage.

That is a common question over on another web site I'm's dedicated to just garages.....

Go here...

I found it looking up info on floor epoxy's....after reading a few threads....I'm waiting until I'm all done with ALL of my construction.

But I HIGHLY suggest doing a search first....chances are that your question has been answered many times over there....

One other thing....DO NOT browse the Garage will only make you feel bad and spend more money on your me....I know this....AMHIK
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
