Hi All,

I'm on the cusp of buying a house and for the first time in my life, I'll have a garage (exciting!). Since the garage is 2.5 cars, I'm going set up a workshop in there.

Right now, the floor is painted cement and the current owner has been using the garage to restore vintage MGs.

The cement is in OK shape, but will need repainting at the very least. I like the look/idea of epoxy, but have heard mixed review regarding slickness when wet.

Interested in anyone with experience with epoxy floors or alternative flooring solutions.

I don't have one, in fact my garage floor is not even painted. Nowadays, most manufacturing facilities have epoxy floors. They stand up well to equipment and wear, which is why they are used so extensively. They are probably slippery when wet. This would be a side effect of another feature that most manufacturing people would prefer for thier floors and that is the ease of sweeping or cleaning the floor.

The mixed reviews may be because the consumer type systems may not be as good as what is used in factories.
