Epoxy coat the garage floor. Just finished mine today.

It makes such a difference , if it did not take 24 hours to dry, I would be sleeping there tonight.

What brand did you use?

How big was the floor?
I'm having one built and was wondering about the epoxy coating

Three car garage. Used Daich Coatings DaiHard 100. Heard about in on the Gary Sullivan radio show.

One kit says it covers 250 sf. My sf was 759 so I ordered 4 kits just in case.
Three kits did the job. Spreads like butter and easy to work with.

Temps were in the low 70s when I applied, so it had a good pot life.

I think the instructions say to wait 30 days after a new pour (green concrete)

Really looks great! Thanks for the heads up on the 30 day wait.
I'm sure I'm not going to have that kind of time frame.

Get free LED light bulbs from your power company and start replacing lamps where you can.
I am almost 100% LED. Most were free from the POCO.

ZT that looks good. You do need to wait 30 days or more because the new concrete gives off moisture as it cures, and it will interfere with the adhesion.

The previous owner coated my garage floor with a clear coat of something. Still looks good after 15+ yrs. only problem is that it can be slippery when wet.
