Epoxy coating a garage floor?
 
Does anyone know anything about this? Are there different types of coatings? Which are the best? About how much would epoxy coating a 2-car garage (19 x 21) run?

I've used the 1 part Behr Epoxy and Like it. Prep work is the key with any on them. i Did a 12 x 24 for about 60 bucks in Mat'l (prep stuff included) already had the pressure washer

Epoxy
 
I just did mine this past spring. Used a two part epoxy with 70% solids. You can go higher but its tougher to work with. The product was from cloverdale paints. I used 4 single gallon pails to do two coats on a 22x24 garage. Make sure you get the same colour batch. Basically I did half the garage, then the other waited a couple of days and did the second coat. You can't too long between coats or you won't get a good bond (max 7 days I think). I also recommend a carbon filter half mask, though the pink elephants were nice.
