did my own, use armoral epoxy for garage floors with speckles which you can use or not use. very easy, my daughter and I did it and we are girls. cost $79 per kit plus tax. I used 1 kits because my garage is huge.

Default Cost And Need For Acid Etching?

I'd like to finish my garage floor, but I'm hesitant to have either me or anyone else apply the necessary acid for etching the concrete and then rinse it out over our new and recently sealed paver driveway. That doesn't seem like a good idea for the pavers. It seems to me that the same acid that etched the concrete would wash off the sealer on the pavers or even worse, change the color of the pavers. Right or wrong?

Also, how much does the entire epoxy coating process cost when done by a contractor? I know there are different sized garages; how about a "per square foot" estimate?

I'm with you Kahuna, if it can etch concrete it has to be hard on a sealer coat. I imagine if you call S & S they will give you a free estimate and an opinion on the pavers.

Are all garage coatings the same (Epoxy) or are there "Supreme" versions or thickness grades??

Once again I would defer to the professionals, S & S could probably answer this question.

Default Old World Pavers

They did a terrific job. I think they've installed the pavers on every house that has them on our street. They're located on 441 in Fruitland Park. Call them at 352-787-1611. Ask to have them send out Jesse Mitchell to give you an estimate.

Problem. ??? I put epoxy on my garage floor and now my car is stuck to it and can't move. And can you imagine how many of those damned little tubes of epoxy I had to use to cover the whole floor? I think I may have missed something. :redface: :redface:
