Concrete polishing or Epoxy
Anyone have any experience with either? I'm looking to either get my 2 car garage floor polished or epoxyed.. Whats the average cost to get this done? thanks in advance.

I have epoxy in my garage and I am having my downstairs diamond polished/dyed today.
The polish/dye is a littel less expensive than a good epoxy job, and (IMO) looks a littel classier. The polish/dye is costing me around $4 per sq ft. It can cost a little more or a little less depending on whether you put down urethane or how much you decide to polish the floor. I dont remember how much the epoxy was.
The epoxy is really nice for a work space as it is chemical resistant (brake fluid/race fuel wont eat through it like it will concrete).

Epoxy over polished IMO. We did our own so I'm not sure what it would cost to have done. If you have someone apply it for you, make sure they etch or grind the floor first. If your existing floor has any sealer or oil on it the epoxy won't bond very well and will flake off in the future.

I just worked on a job...a commercial loading dock. The surface was overlayed with a mortar, epoxy coated/ boardcasted with black beauty (abrasive sand) and then sealed with another layer of epoxy. I'll see if I can get some pictures soon.
What's your location? I might have a guy that can perform the job for you.
