Best thing about painting your garage floor is that it becomes unbelievably easier to keep clean. Sweeping out a painted garage is far easier than raw concrete. In fact, I just roll up the door and use the leaf blower to blow out the garage floor in about 30 seconds. All that garage dust is gone.

Thanks!
I think this will be one of my first projects to do when my house is complete. I will try it on the front 2 car garage. And if it works well, I will do the second 2 car garage in the back!

Contractor price should be $3-3.50/sq ft for the high quality epoxy. If that is within your budget then have the pros do it.

The $25 per gallon tintable garage floor paint from home depot is not too bad. i especially like the choices in color. it requires little prep and applies thin - thats cool if you intend to recoat everytime you mess it up after months/years of house/car projects

I had Xpedite Coatings do my garage floor a year ago, it looks amazing! I think I paid between $3 & $4

My husband did our 2 car garage with the Quickrite(sp) stuff from a big box retailer. Came out great, this was 3 years ago. The garage floor looks awesome. We regularly park our cars in the garage. The floor is easy to mop and clean.

We also painted the garage walls along with doing the floor, our garage now looks like an extension of the house. Looks great.

I called five places and it's $3.50 - $4.25 per sq/ft depending upon the material used.

Just sayin'...

[url=http://www.HoustonGarageFloors.com]Houston Garage Floors[/url] did a great job at coating my neighbors garage. They did it a couple years ago and it still looks good.

Surface Systems of Texas resurfaced our garage floor this summer with the Colorflake System. We are very happy with it. We paid $4.50 per sq. ft. as sub-contracted through GarageTek, probably would have been somewhat cheaper directly. ;-)
