    I went with the rustoleum one that you get from Can Tire.

    Lasted a good 7 years (probably about time to redo it) and it is holding up well.

    In the higher traffic areas there is some pitting and peeling because i run studded winter tires so for it to last this long is pretty good considering the price I paid.

    If I had to do it again, I would still do epoxy (a few coats as opposed to the single layer I did) to protect the concrete but I would put tiles overtop for overkill.

    I used the 1 part rustoleum floor paint, 2 coats. Painted it about 6 months ago, and still holding up very well. Next garage I will be attempting the 2 part epoxy with the fancy flakes.

    It is also on my todo list however one corner of the garage pad cracked and sunk... i'm hoping to find a way to lift the pad in that one corner before I move forward with something like this. The one mud jacking company I reached out to couldn't be bothered to call me back.

    More on topic my mom used I think the HomeDepot coating in a commercial space and it worked quite well for a while until some of the chemicals she had on had spilled on it and she had to redo a section.

    My neighbor used one of the contractors that offers this. It cost A LOT, like almost $6/sq-ft, but it's very well done with those fancy flecks that look like guitar picks in it.

    Did you have to do all the acid etching prep on the concrete before you applied the coating?

    My dad had Garage Strategies come in and do his double garage with the flakes. Personally I wouldn't do the same as he did. Reason why is the flakes make it hard to see nuts and bolts and washers you drop, they just blend in. For the price, I'd wager the DIY kits you get at Home Depot are likely to last more than long enough to justify the cost and labour involved.

    The good stuff will chip and stain if you aren't careful, no matter what the sales guy says. Might as well know how to repair it, need be, and pay less. Though GS did provide a warranty, which is handy.
