Sorry, but couldnt see an appropriate sub-forum for this...

Last two years freshly painted the floor of the garage with international paint. Both times the paint has been ripped up by the tyres :p and now they have laid pea shingle over the tarmac as a final coat on the road :sleep:

So anyway, doing a search it seems there are a lot of epoxy resin solutions in the states, but nothing in the UK. All I keep coming across is these damn tiles...

Anybody done there garage or have an opinion? :unworthy:

Thanks for that, my google skills must be failing me... guess because I was specifically searching for 'garage'. I think maybe I have shot myself in the foot though as its already painted, so I would have to strip it back... hmmm food for thought

OK -so I dont drive into my garage, however I used Wickes Garage Floor sealer (which 10 years ago came in a plastic carton - so assume is the same stuff).

The stuff was like water and 3 flood coats dried like a varnish. The surface is very durable and has even survived an accidental attack with the angle grinder.

Note: Sometime later I was lead to believe all this stuff was was a watered down PVA adhesive, the PVA soaked into the floor sealing it and giving it the semi varnish finish.

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Peeling paint is a common problem - warm tyres, wet surface, weight of the car regularly in one static place is always going to be a challenge

You could well be right that it'll be even harder to successfully reapply anything new now due the other stuff already being down... :unworthy:

Not sure what to suggest really... why don't you want tiles fella..?

I can see why you don't want those tiles, but what about garage specific ceramic tiles, the sort that are permanently glued in place?

I think it's just because I've seen so many I'm not sure what is kosha or not... I don't wantto commit to a garage worth of tiles until I get some feedback on quality etc.. :sleep:
