    Pretty sure it's alot more then that, I've heard $10-$17 sqft. I've watched 2-3 guys do it over the course of 2-3 days.

    Nope. I have a quote for less than $6/sq-ft. That includes only 30' linear of crack repair prior to the coating and it's an extra $3/ft for crack repair after that.

    Well if it's one of those cases where you get what you pay for...

    Quick math, $6 x 400sq ft = $2400.

    Painter69 says approx $1700 for materials but let's dial it back to $1400 Just for fun.

    That leaves $1000 for Labour, for a company that would mean 1 guy @ 2 days ($500 per day)

    Now not saying you don't have that quote (maybe it's a friend or company that is slow) , I'm in the painting business and I've seen some insanely low quotes when I see low quotes it can only leave me to believe you're gonna get what you pay for (I fix alot of these low quote jobs).

    The guys both I and painter69 have watched do this trade, do it properly, over the course of 2-3 days with a couple guys.

    But maybe Painter69 can chime in and give us a approx sqft cost with Labour. Or at least let us know how many hours with how many people.

    On a side note, if you do go ahead and get this done and it works out Well, id also go through that company and would also be able to forward them a bunch of business!

    Just seems to cheap to be good...

    Yes, the two component kit that I bought had the cleaner/prep kit and paint flecks.

    It was an orange based one, you mop/scrub and let it dry for a few days, then when you are sure the concrete is dry, just roller it on, it was rather strong smelling.

    But like I said, $120 sih bucks for two kits and 7+ years, I think I did good.

    Holy fuck. I need this in my life immediately!!
    Please post links to the exact product!
    I don't want the flakes, but I want an epoxy coating and preferably in a white-ish color to help brighten up the garage.

    The flakes are mostly for traction. I only puth them down on high traffic areas, but lightly sprinkled them on areas where I would be parking.

    Regular price is $125 but they will go on sale from time to time and I think I paid $65 for the kit.
