They do not stain, easy to clean and looks amazing, I was in the same dilema but with the hot of Florida did not want to get the risk of peeling with coating.





That looks awesome. Do you have a link to those tiles? (where you got them?)

Thanks....

Went from this of 20 years as a machine shop, oil on the floors, metal chips crushed in. Took 40 hours worth of grinding and cleaning. Then another two days to epoxy the floors. Then left it one month prior to driving cars onto it.






To this using a floor grinder and then Legacy Industrial Flooring HD Epoxy.

Overall it has held up well, as others have noted that welding or cutting things with torches can leave burn marks on the floor, however done right with a mechanical bond from grinding it holds up great with jack stands and even jacks rolling around on it. It will age and wear, but from the standpoint of what I had to deal with it made a huge impact in light and cleanliness. For cleaning a mop works really well, for the size space I have I have been thinking of getting a floor cleaner, but have not had the justification of spending the money for the hobby shop.

Wow. Not bad pricing at all. I assume you went with the TrueLock HD Ribbed, their top of the line tile?
What was the total cost of the tiles you bought for your garage? How many square feet was your garage total? (Average size 2 car garage?)
Thanks.

Thank you & you’re welcome. Remember to use lanscaping black fabric in the base works perfect, and let the concrete breathe

Here another pic
