Here is my dream shop.

It's 25' X 25' X 11' high, high-lift insulated door, Home Depot cabinets, AC/Heat unit, 4 in-wall stereo speakers, and a U-Coatit epoxy floor. (However, I wouldn't use U-Coatit again as I am dissapointed with it.)

The air supply is piped-in from the 80gal compressor located in my other 2 car garage.

I will be painting my current project (69 Vette) in here soon.

It is my dream shop but of course now my dreams are for bigger and better on my next house purchase.

Nice space Roger. I noticed that th efloor has specls in it. Is it by chance U-Coat-it? If so, how do you like it. If it's not, what is it and how do you like it? Looks good though.

Kevin,

Yes, it is U-Coatit and no, I am not very satisfied with it.

The product goes on very,very thin and any defects in the concrete show up badly.
I had some small cracks and some small chips in the concrete that are pretty normal for a garage floor that was 18 years old. So, I bought a can of U-Coatit's epoxy patch to fix these areas. Well, their paint is so thin, that you can easily see these patched areas underneath.

Also, their product didn't cover the square footage that they say it does. I had to buy more product half way through the job. I've seen other posts to the contrary, but even on my clearcoat, I had to stretch it as thin as possible to have enough to finish. Maybe on a perfectly smooth concrete floor, the kind that's kind-of shiny to begin with, it would be better. But any little imperfection in your floor will be seen. When I acid etched my floor in preparation, a few areas lost that shiny look and aren't as smooth as other areas. These areas can be seen in the photo.

Also, do you see those tire marks in the photo? They will not come off. I used that foam stuff that makes tires look good and it yellowed the clear coat.

The positives about it is that the paint is tough and it doesn't lift or come off. But, all epoxies should do that if properly applied. You can scratch it by dragging heavy metal objects across it. But metal wheels from a floor jack or engine hoist don't hurt it at all.

With the extra product I had to buy, this job cost me $1000 for the 600 sq-ft.
Way, way too expensive.

My brother is doing his garage floor with the Griots Garage epoxy this week.(www.griotsgarage.com) I will report back here how this job comes out. This stuff covers 130 sq-ft a gallon and is $56.95/gal. Griot's is expensive for a lot of their items but reasonable on the paint. They have got a cool catalog. I recommend getting on their mailing list.

Explore other options. Don't get the U-Coatit.

Roger
