GARAGE FLOOR EPOXY - A 100% solids garage floor epoxy paint is a very durable, long lasting, easy to clean, garage floor coating. It comes in a variety of colors and after it dries it is harder than the concrete it is painted on.

GARAGE FLOOR PROTECTOR - Polyaspartic Polyurea is similar to epoxy but it dries much faster. You can paint your floor and move your stuff back in the very next day. With epoxy you have to wait 72 hours to get back on it. This floor finish won't yellow, chalk, or fade, and can be applied in temperature as low as -30 degrees F.
