There is a HUGE difference in floor coatings and you may want to ask Roger1 about this. I imagine he will chime in also. He has used quite a few different types. I know what I have used out of the "paint stores" and such and they have not lasted. Most will peel within the first year. To everyone, money is always a concern, but if you cut corners now, it will cost you WAY more down the road. As an example, I had bare concrete floors. I acid etched and used an inferior product. Then I put another inferior product over that because I was told all I had to do was clean it a certain way and SHOULD have no problems. Now to do it the RIGHT way will involve some expense to strip properly, etch properly, and do it PROPERLY. At a little more cost than if I had done it right the first time.. But that's my $.02 on it. Roger1 will chime in, and Trees is getting ready to do his floor.
