I had reservations regarding this purchase after having read so many negative reviews regarding Rust-Oleum's Epoxy floor covering. I was mainly concerned whether one two car garage kit was going to be sufficient to cover the entire project. I was concerned for no reason. The Rock Solid Polycuramine kit was sufficient to do the job with a little left over. I covered, with ease, a floor approximately 420 square feet. This is a great looking finish that I would highly recommend. The pre-work for applying this floor covering cannot be shortcut. I did everything to identify every place oil stains had been and still missed two spots that I did not consider. This finish will not adhere to any area where oil has saturated your concrete without thorough cleaning and de-greasing. I missed two areas not considered. The spots where the cars front tires sit on the garage floor did not take the covering very well. I never considered this area while scrubbing my floor. Everywhere else that I singled out for extra cleaning worked out perfectly. I assume, since tires are oil products, that I should have considered these areas. Don't be afraid to do this yourself. This is a very durable hard finish that really looks amazing. Like I say, I only had two minor blips on the surface that I did not consider while in the prep mode. Just take the time on the front end to clean your concrete and you will be pleasantly surprised.
I bought an enclosed car trailer and used this kit to finish the wood floor. The dealership I purchased the trailer from recommended it and I must say it turned out great. If i had it to do over I would buy a small kit just for trimming the edges. Spiked shoes are a MUST for a good finish.
Don’t take short cuts, preparation is everything. Clean and prep the flooring until it’s ready. I tried using the provided etch but was not satisfied with the results. So, I used muriatic acid, flushed it with baking soda solution, and then flushed with water. Use the patch as necessary and then apply the primer! The primer is good, it is thick and fills pores. I got good coverage and consistent color from packet to packet. I applied two coats of clear with anti-skid granules, and the finish came out great. This is not a self-leveling product to correct problems in the concrete or a resin coating to fill the cracks and gouges. If you want that kind of correction do the prep work. This stuff isn’t cheap, if you’re willing to spend the money to put a nice finish on your floor then spend enough to do the job right. I had a contractor quote me $2000 to do my floor and by the time I was done, I spent about $850. I’m happy with it!
