"Epoxy Covering"


I think I already know the answer to this but want to double check. I have a job that is converting a already converted garage to a art studio. The customer wants to use Behr 1-part epoxy floor paint (she found at the The Home Depot). My question is, is it worth a hoot? If not what do you suggest? She wants something that will just be durable and easy to wipe paint off of. It is about 300 sq ft. Thanks.

No. Avoid anything with the Behr name on it. If you want a decent one part try SealKrete or Richards. I've used both and they work pretty well provided you aren't expecting too much out of a one part epoxy modded acrylic. I've seen a couple cases of the Behr, both of which have horrendous lap marks.

SealKrete and Richards both have very good one part epoxy modded acrylics. Most paint companies will have their own floor paints as well. These are generally oil or acrylic with a urethane built in to them to give them added hardness. If you are going water based I still use the epoxy modded products. They are harder than a standard acrylic floor paint.
