Default Epoxy Floors

Funny... a few years back I was visiting Reggie Jackson's
shop and he was mopping his floors ... 69 z28's
parked all over the place... he said the place was a mess
I guess he could have used one of Charlie's machines

The more epoxy floor covering quotes I get, the better polished concrete floors look to me...

I think I can see where the Lotus was parked in Charlies shop.....


A couple things to think about Lance ---- With "coated" floors -- if you drag anything on them -- you know what happens - if you do any metal cutting or welding -- they get burn marks....

They still look better if you do AT LEAST two coats of clear..... That's what I did in my shop and in my home garages (5 car).

In a "working shop environment" -- go with Charlies polisher.... you'll be happier.

So Charlie, who did you have polish your floors for the first time?

At the home show last weekend I asked every epoxy floor guy there if they polish concrete also and only one said he did...then quoted me $3.00 a foot which was more than a couple of the epoxy quotes I got.

Upon further review, he was quoting polishing the floor, then putting a clear coat sealer on top of it. I asked him about leaving the sealer off and he mumbled and said he'd have to ask his boss or something... So I walked away.

I use Armor Garage and been happy with it , I do re coat some with just the top coat once a year or so . Some of it gets more than just a car parked on it and for the $$ I like it. I think it was like $800-$900 for a kit to do 500 sqft , you can get it cheaper without the kit ( roller,acid,mixer ,base,top coat and misc.)
Forgot to say it's a two part Epoxy and the prep. is the hardest part .
