Epoxy garage floor kits

Anyone ever use the garage/work shop floor kits from HD or Lowes??

Usually like a gray color with some flakes, you roll/paint it on.

Any other suggestions, don't want to spend a ton of $$ if possible but want a solid job.

Garage now is just cement and the wife wants "a Martha Stewart garage" so figured I'd do the floor first and then reset up all my equipment and what not.

I have. If your floor ever has had moisture issues, forget it. It will peel. If it's dry it will be amazing

Wait until Sherwin has a 30%-40% sale.Their water-based epoxy kit is as good as it gets and with the sale you're out the door cheap.

Just follow the instructions and when you're done there's no cleanup because the roller cover,brush and tray liner are in the dumpster.

Done more garage floors with this stuff than I can even count.

Get yourself a Good respirator then use muriotic acid and scrub a small area at at time to clean and etch it.
I know guys in repair shops that do it and it's great so long as it's prepped right.
