Painting/Sealing Garage Floor


Looking to put a paint or sealer on the garage floor (approx.400 sq ft)
Trying to keep budget under $150,so the two part epoxy systems are out.
Don't care whether its paint or sealer,just looking for a product that will hold up.
Concrete is in good condition,15 years old,and has never been painted or sealed.
As always,any useful responses are greatly appreciated.

Want it to last, but not willing to use a better product that will hold up. HMM
Save up and buy the two part or get stuck having to go back and scrape then do it all over again and end up costing twice as much.

Preparation is the key as long as you do the right garage floor preparation for epoxy coating you will have a long lasting and enduring coating but i think your budget is very low if there any problem to there budget?

Wound up scrubbing the floor with soapy water and letting dry for several days.
Then applied the oil remover,which crystalizes when it absorbs oil.
Put Enduraseal Acrylic sealer @159 per 5 gallons.
Came out very nice.
Between paint 235,sealer and non skid additive 185,and drywall contractor 750 did an entire 20 by 20 two car garage for about 1200.
Added at least that much in equity to the house.

You put paint over the sealer? If so what kind?

Sorry Guys,
I should have been a little more explanatory on my project.
The paint was for the drywall, which was done by others (They hung 4X12 boards 13 feet up on ceiling,hung 10 additional boards around perimeter,taped,applied 3 coats of mud and sanded),something I wasn't taking on.
I did the painting and the floor sealing,so it was a half and half DIY project
I was just giving an overall budget in case someone might have a project like this in mind for the spring.
