RE: Advice & Opinions on DIY Epoxy Garage Floorcovering Kits
Have you thought about laying rubber mats or tiles made for garage use? Lays in minutes, no need to wait for paint to dry and the rubber will provide cushioning, reducing fatigue if you plan to work in the garage for extended periods of time.
I take it in Alaska, frost heave is a major phenomenon in the winter and groundwater is probably plenty rest of the year. Unless the subslab drainage and waterproofing is done properly, moisture making its way through the concrete slab will lift the epoxy off the surface, causing the finish to peel off. Chicago has the same problem since the water table is high in that region - remember, Chicagoland was swampland before people settled there.
Rubber floor tiles will cost anywhere from $2.50 to $3.25 per sq.ft. (in Alaska, as with anything sold there, it may cost a little more). You could also opt to lay a roll of mat which is comparable in per sqft price.
Look up Rubber Garage Flooring or something to that effect; you'll find trove of infomation [;)]
