Not sure what kind of epoxy you have in mind. I find that the coated cement floors and pads are terrible slippery when they have snow on them. They do sweep easy tho.

Just my opinion.

I wonder if all coatings are slippery when cold also is it slippery when covered with oils and fluids when tearing something apart?

For that size shop that’s probably right in the price range. I have a buddy that does it and bugged him to do mine. The price for the material was close to what you are saying for a 26x48.

I did our 3+ car garage on a weekend by myself approx 4 years ago. Product was called Roll on Rock I believe. garagecoatings.com is their site out of California. I've been pretty happy with the finished product. I did get some of the additive to make it less slippery. I can't find the invoice but seems like the additive was called Sharkbite.

Just make sure you take time to prep the concrete correctly.

just wondering how strong is the roll and rock ? Does it compare to strength of concrete .when I poured concrete for my garage floor I had to much water in it .(no power trowel )when it set up all the cream was on top where I had puddles .pisses me off how bad it came out .have been looking for a fix to my mess .how thick did you apply it do you think it will fill in 1/2 inch holes ?

Would a pressure wash be good enough or would it have to be acid washed

I used epoxy-coat.com and couldn't be happier. When I power wash the garage it looks new again. The coating itself has held up great. There is the odd place were I have scratched it or chipped the concrete from dropping heavy shit but nothing that I wouldn't of expected.

Here it my thread from when I did mine. I think the pictures are on page 4. Good luck
