Epoxy on floors looks great when new....if any sort of mechanical work will be done on the concrete....rethink putting down epoxy....it will scratch, lift, tear eventually...and it looks terrible when trying to touch up the bad spots.

You will get tire stains from tires sitting on it

It will be slicker than ice when wet

I did not tint. paint, or seal my floor I'm concerned what it would look like after spilling brake fluid, paint thinner, etc on the surface not to mention what would happen welding and metal cutting with the torch or plasma cutter. For sure I would never drop anything like a starter, clutch, or bigger metal object on it

John exactly my point...my previous employer thought it was a grand idea to paint their floors. It looked GREAT on day 1....after that it looked terrible due to stains, chips, touchups and not to mention how many hurt employees from falling on it when it was wet

I sealed our floors out in the shop. It stays on and is clear and makes oil leaks or spills wipe right up, oil will not soak in. It is not slick at all. In the lounge part we acid stained the floors. It will never wear off or chip like paint or expoxy. After eight years it still looks like new. I would never use paint or expoxy as it will always come off in time. Acid stain is there forever, you cannot ever wear it off. They use acid stain on a lot of the casino floors in Vegas, and even the hordes of traffic they get on it can not wear it off. It is burnt into the cement. We used sealer on the concrete outside as well.

I posted some pics earlier. Here's my updated pics. Still a few things to do. I've been slowly chipping away at it been everything else that I've got going on. Put down the pavement a couple if weeks ago. Still have to do two retaining walls and some concrete. I didn't stain the floor, just sealed it so that we wouldn't be dragging concrete dust into the coach everything we went in.

Good comments regarding the epoxy floor. We have an epoxy floor in our hangar at work and I agree with the peeling comment. It is only 2 years old and already looks like crap. I wanted to keep the dust low and make the clean up easy. I thought about just sealing the concrete but decided to add stain to the mix before pouring so the color was all the way through the concrete. I thought that would be better than acid and I wanted a light color to enhance the lighting in the garage. I chose a light gray with a clear sealer. Hopefully it will hold up better than epoxy. My small garage where I store my corvettes in the winter has a checkerboard black and white stain and sealer which is several years old and has held up pretty well. Hoping the MH garage will be the same. Here is a picture of our epoxy floor at work. Mine should be similar in color when done.

Actually I would run 100 Am service to the RV Garage, with one 30 Amp outlet for a Air Compressor, and other power tools. Then as Bill suggested One of two dedicated 50 amp outlets and one on a post by the Driveway. Don't forget water, phone and cable while you are at it

We just started our 70 x 48 foot shop 2 weeks ago. Framers did the walls today.
It has a 14 x 14 door for the mh on the end and 3 9 x 9 doors for cars, lawnmowers, bikes etc.

This is a rendering of the finished project but we went with a cottage roof with some dormers to match our home.

Just thought I would post an update on the garage and share a few recent photo's. Rough electric should be done tomorrow. Siding is all done except for the peak in front. Concrete floor is poured with solid stain (wrong color) was supposed to be light gray not dark gray. Stairs are up temporarily. Septic is in. I have made a lot of changes as we went along. Added more lights in the garage. 3 rows of 6 fluorescents vs 2 rows. Added more can lights on the second floor. Added an additional 50Amp outlet outside. Widened the driveway. Andersen windows vs vinyl contractor grade windows. Fancy insulated garage doors with windows and carriage straps and handles. Etc. Etc.
Insulation goes in next week. Natural gas piping and heaters in a couple of weeks. Interior pine v board for the walls and ceiling arrives this week. Landscaping, border trees, sprinklers and blacktop to follow. Sticker shock soon thereafter.

What's the contractor going to do about the wrong color floor?
