    Anybody experience problems after driving on these coatings with studded tires?

    For anyone brave enough wanting to try to DIY, here's a couple of local suppliers:

    If anyone gets a coating, make sure you get the installers to do the bottom 6-12" up the wall as well.

    I gave Terrafuse a call, didn't catch the name of the guy that answered my call but he was a great help.
    DIY will run about $1500 in materials if you want to go with the decorative flake route. About $11150ish if you go with it.
    Prep is the most important thing, he recommended me looking for contractors that will do just the prep work as they'll have all of the tools to do it.
    If you have studded tires the Polyaspartic does not fair well, you'll need something like techflooring to prevent it from ripping away at it

    I was thinking about giving it a shot. It'll be about $1200 cheaper than getting someone to do the whole thing. It would certainly beat resealing my garage floor every 2 years with that shit from northland concrete

    On a new build should you wait for the garage slab to settle and crack before coating it or get it done right away?

    Really? That seems a bit excessive. I'm happy with 4", has more of a baseboard look to it. Maybe more is recommended for scenarios that don't apply to how I use my garage

    Instead of creating a new post, I will bring this one back from the dead.

    How is everyone's floor coating holding up? For the ones with studded tires, how bad did the tires damage the coating?

    Any recommendation on who to go with for garage coating with Polyaspartic flakes?
    Is it normal for them to offer garage wall sanding and painting service?

    I can't answer that, but I've been looking a waterproof vinyl flooring as an alternative, since it offers some amazing textures. Specifically, MSI Stone Waterproof Rocky Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring. It's under $2/sqft.

    It's been a year and a half with ours and its been holding up really well. We use studded tires on all our winter cars and I cant see any noticeable damage from the studs. I did specifically get a poly urethane top coat applied as added protection against the studs... apparently the stuff what CAT uses for their tracked equipment so it doesnt damage the floors of their shop.

    We went with the Garage Store for our floor. I think most stores offer wall sanding and painting (mostly subbed out).

    Does anyone know of a place that will do concrete grinding/epoxy flooring prep? I bought the Rustoleum kits so will DIY the epoxy, was just lookling for someone to do prep work. Got a hold of one business and was told that they're booked for residential work until the end of the year.

    Just don't use The Garage Store. I'm not going to get into it here but long story short their work turned into a complete nightmare, they never did finish my floor, and they won't honor warranty work on my dad's floor after only 3 years (coating is peeling off in several areas). Other people appear to be having the same issues with them looking elsewhere online. They also don't have a prepaid contractor's license and have been taking deposits illegally.

    Guess I should watch out for my floor peeling then.

    I had them and Zone on my narrowed down list. You should post more information and/or pics. I'm curious of the whole story.

    I have to remove my current flooring as I am planning on doing it again. Do you have the name of this place that can do the concrete grinding? You can pm the info if you want.

    The place I mentioned was Enviro Surface Removers, they have a ton of ads on Kijiji but when I got a hold of them they said they were booked for residential jobs until the end of the year.
    Going to send out a bunch of quote requests in the next day or two to companies that do the entire process, will report back.
