I didnít polish as if I was trying to create terrazzo. I simply polished the surface, stained the concrete, sealed then polished the sealer.
i havenít had any slip issues.

Wonder if weather/cooler garage temps might have anything to do with the epoxy chipping and becoming brittle or just a function of age
Weather could influence. This garage is in our AZ home, so cold not an issue. Chipping, an issue. One of the contractors dropped a hammer...chip the size of a quarter right in the middle

Default Porsche photos printed on aluminum

Does anyone know the Rennlist member that sells the awesome large metal prints of Porsche race cars? I've searched using all kinds of key words, but can't find any of his posts.

I don't know urethane, I have polished concrete in two garages. when it's wet, it is very slippery

Look into what floor finish was applied. Or if none, think about applying some. Here's an example that adds some slip resistance while giving gloss. How much slip resistance, look into the ASTM slip resistance test that it meets, listed on site.

After a long journey, I'm happy to report I finally took delivery of my GT3RS yesterday. I was sadly one of the victims related to the Shiraaz/Champion Porsche fall out but I must admit, they stepped up and made things right for me. In conclusion to that chapter, I'm glad its over and I'm happy with the outcome. I hope all of the other victims have the same conclusion to report.
So to come full circle with this story, early 2018, I finally broke down and decided to build a new garage for my car to be delivered late 2018, early 2019. Design started in March, 2018, construction began around the middle of June, 2018. I had photos and pic's of things I had collected for years, of which I wanted to somehow incorporate into my space. Yard was an obstacle and compromise had to be made on size. I ultimately decided on a 38'x29' space. I'm subsequently a commercial contractor so allot of thought was put into operating cost, longevity and obviously my taste for appearance. Foundations were probably an over kill but I wanted to make sure things set on a solid footing. Walls were constructed with 2x6 studs @ 16" centers. Front wall was constructed with 2x10 due to the clearstory ribbon window setting directly over the garage doors, hence I wanted to distribute the load to (3) 18" LVL's per door opening. Walls, Floors (elevated desk) & roof framing all have closed cell foam insulation, 5/8" gyp board. Concrete slab is 8" thick reinforced with WWF & fiber. No cracking what's so ever. I highly recommend fiber for those on the fence about it. Floor has been polished and stained to a natural grey concrete finish. Hot water is provided by a tank less hot water unit in a mechanical room below, A little natural stone accent on the exterior, slate roofing, copper gutters, board & batt siding (very affordable) with translucent stain and an exposed concrete driveway.
I'm pleased with the outcome and happy to finally share with the Rennlist community.




What a garage, great job!

Do not grind too smooth / too much, just leave some texture on. a) It looks better IMHO b) it shows floor character c) too much grinding take the surface strength away.
Urethane specialists can help you - I went with industrial version of you see at an NBA court - it is thick and shiny, sort of like how we used to paint and put 10 coats of clear on hotrods 30 years ago.

About $8k. Don't even think about the cheaper chinese copies. They are very dangerous. The only single post to get is this one built south of Fort Worth - build like a tank.
hey Texas,
so the single post lift cost $8k?
